as you know I had the privlage of taking care of a child with Moubious syndrum . I got Emily when she was three. she was on machines and could not even sit up on her own . I cared for this child for five years in witch time she was able to get free of all machines walk and do normal things. She used sign language to comunicate . her dad a few years ago decided to try to care for her and moved her away . but about six months ago they came back to live at our home so Emily was a part of my life again . on the morning of 9-9-08 he went to go wake her up for school but she dident move. they pronced her dead at 8;30 am . we will miss her so much  I know this is not the best letter i can wright i just needed to vent a little.

 I am so sorry.  Your journal has brought me to tears.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and her family.  She is a beautiful angel.......

What a special lady you are to have cared for this special child. I know it had to break your heart when the Lord took her home. You can have peace of mind that you did everything you could for her and she was loved. She's an angel now and is watching over you. I want to say thank you myself for taking care of one of the Lord's special child's. There's not to many that will do that. Your blessed. So sorry you lost her. Hugs Phyllis

Oh, Barb!  What a precious little girl!  Did you ever read Dale Evans Rogers' book, "Angel Unawares"?  Your story reminds me of that.  She lost a little daughter, too, and says she believes that her little girl was an angel on earth.  So very sweet!

I am glad you shared your story.  Write and write and write.  We will be here to listen, Honey!

 I am sorry for your loss. I lost one of my sons.

 We can never be prepared to give them back to God as easily as He trusted their care to us.

May Our dear Father bless you with peace & happiness
