A Personal Favor...

Please keep SCI-FI and Mrs. SCI-FI in your prayers today. It's the anniversary of the loss of their second daughter, and I know they're hurting today. Their world changed, irrevocably, eight years ago; a senseless loss that shook their foundations; a sweet little girl never given the chance to survive.

I know they're hurting today. I'm hurting today.

Eight years is a long time, yet it feels like the barest eyeblink that I got the call. A mutual friend who lives nearby to SCI-FI called me to tell me what had happened. I'll never forget that juxtaposition - I saw the name come up on my phone and assumed that the baby had been born. Well, she had - but she never came home. Even now I can't think about that day without crying; my niece deserved her shot at the brass ring and she never got out of the starting gate.

All I can offer today to SCI-FI and B is that I'm thinking of you both, as well as the rest of the clan. 

That is all.

Of course. I've had this experience, and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.
Prayers offered.
