Thank you for sharing the Brave Little Soul. I just stumbled across this thread today. I noticed, Caterina, that you live in Md. Two years ago, my dd was having spinal surgery at Johns Hopkins and we met a family in the ICU. Our daugthers beds were across from one another. Their daughter, Christina, lost her battle with cancer. Could this be the same child you have referred to. I know that they have use caringbridge. Just thought I would ask. Again, thank you for this.
The poem is beautiful and we have seen that very thing occur with our youngest dd, now 16. She has osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare bone disorder causing bones to fracture for no reason. She has a lot of the other associated problems due to her severity. The spinal surgery 2 years ago was for scoliosis. We have seen people we don't know come together in prayer for our daugther and with help when we needed it and when we didn't yet know what we needed. God is so good. Again, thank you!
