I am crying my eyes out as I sit here ....

I have never met Shannon in real life, I have only read her blog. I have followed on her beautiful daughter Josie, and her amazing daugher Marie who was born with Leigh's Disease. I have waited impatiently to hear of their third daughter being born.

When I logged on to her blog this evening to see if the baby made her appearance, I was shocked to read the news. Sarah Kate was born Thursday morning, and then Marie passed away peacefully in her sleep the next morning.

I cannot even imagine. My heart is literally aching, I am typing through streaming tears. Please pray for their family as they try to deal with the bliss and happiness of a new baby, along with the heartache of loss.

Such joy and sadness on the same day. I just finished looking at their blog and Marie was a beautiful little girl. Prayers for the family
