Just wanted you to know that I am thinking about you and that your family will be in my prayers. Reading through your blog I can tell that you are an amazing mother. Your kids are so lucky to have you!!!

  29. As I read through these comments, as well as others, it only solidifies the fact that this little girl is one of those perfect souls who only needed one thing out of this life and that was to receive a mortal body. She lived for 9 months and 5 hours but has done more good in her little life then I think most of us do in a lifetime. She has touched the lives of, who knows, how many and her story has strengthened numerous testimonies, including my own. This child not only chose God's plan, but she chose the most perfect family for her to belong to. Justin and Breanne, along with their boys are some of the most strongest people I know. I am grateful that they shared their families journey with us and I know for a fact that Our Father in Heaven is proud of his children right now and how they dealt with one of the most amazingly unbearable difficult time in their life. They allowed and gave others the opportunity to see what God's plan is all about. Thank you Justin and Breanne and may you both feel the Lord's arms around you at this time.
