My heart aches.
If you haven't read this story yet about Ben Sauer....you must.
I'm giving you warning that it's not a very happy story.
My heart just aches for this family.
Their little boy is a month older than Avery. Their baby is Cassandra's age. They are from a suburb extremely close to where I grew up.
I can't fathom the news they have received or how they are even dealing with it.
It blows my mind that one day your child is running around completely normal and within a few days you find out the most devastating news that you can possibly receive about your child.
And they appear to be handling it with such grace and optimism. I don't think I would. Of course you never know until you are put into that position, but I just can't imagine it.
Whether you pray or not, please keep this family in your thoughts. They need it.
And remember that every moment you have on this Earth is a gift.
Hug and kiss your loved ones. Tell them you love them. Enjoy the beauty in the small things (and large too!). Embrace every day as just that-a new day. Be thankful you have another day to spend living your life.
