I received an email (below) from a friend of a mother who is experiencing the death of her child, CJ. I would like to ask all of you to add CJ and his family to your prayers. Thank you.
Dear Cheryl and Sandy,
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful organization. My very wonderful friend Margaret gave birth two weeks ago to the sweetest, most precious boy. She found out earlier this week that he has Trisomy 13, and he will not likely live much longer. I sent her the link to your website, and a photographer came out this morning and took pictures of her, baby CJ, and her dear husband. This is, I think, the only bright spot for her in what really feels now like an insurmountable tragedy. It is something for her to hold onto forever, and I can’t tell you how thankful I am to you for giving that to her. We will, of course, thank the photographer when I know who she is.
I’m so sorry that this organization was born out of such personal tragedy for you Cheryl. It is so kind of both of you, other volunteers, and all of the photographers to take your time to give this gift to people who feel so lost.
Here is a link to CJ’s site if you would like to see him: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/christopherjordangodhard.
Thank you again, truly.
