This is my first and last post. A random writer of comments shares her brief story:

Our son was born a year ago, early diagonsed with WHS. During this year we have seen him grown and learn new things. It has been an experience that has been very unlike the one most parents have.  We were touched by an angel. He was close to leaving us already in December, but stayed. We celebrated his first Christmas and his first birthday. We had a most amazing rehabilitation week where he really showed everyone what a great boy he was.

Two days later we suddenly had to go to the hospital. In less than a week from the first signs of illness, we held him in our arms for the last time. It was today. We knew that no doctors, no machines, no prayers, no love in the world could keep him with us longer. We were lent an angel, for a while.

Thanks to everyone here for sharing your bright view on life, you have all been a tremendeous help to us.

    Words cannot express how deeply sorry I am for the loss of your beautiful baby boy. Keep holding on to all the wonderful memories that you have. My heart is aching for your family. You are all in my prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Our little angels are sometimes too precious to stay in this world. I know this as our little Necia passed away in 2002 on Thanksgiving morning. Words can’t heal or fill the hole in your hearts, but know that you will survive and that you were blessed enough to hold an angel in your arms for but a moment. That angel will be your constant companion and protector. You will meet once again, but for now be greatful that you were special enough to have him in your life. Our Necia blessed our lives and is always in our hearts. Our prayers are with you.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. It will be hard to go forward, but as the saying goes time does heal. We lost our angel a little over a year ago. Cherish every memory. He was a gift and will continue to be one for the rest of your lives. I will keep you in my prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I don’t know what I would do. You are right. You were given an angel and God would not give us something we can’t handle, even if it seems unfair….No doubt, you and your family are very strong. I wish you all the best.

    Today marks 10 years since our son passed away. The loss is still great but somehow you get better for every day in dealing with grief. This community is great and I’m so glad to see that it is still alive. Take care of yourselves, give every day purpose and let your children be angels in your lives, forever.
