'My Facebook status this morning reads:
"I'm part of a group I never knew I would be a part of nor did I want to be a member, yet I couldn't live without them. I have cried with women I've never seen, over children I've never met. I am the mother of a medically fragile child..."
Sadly, those words seem to come true more often than I'd like, as I am brought to tears over the loss of a dear friend's precious girl. Despite the many obstacles she faced in her short years on earth, she touched the lives of many more people than some do in a long lifetime.
Not only does my heart break with every announcement that another little one has gained their angel wings, but the reality of what my own little man is facing hits me all over again. Another reminder to hold your loved ones close... and appreciate every smallest moment.'
