A Story That Touched My Heart.....

I just saw this extremely sad story today. The Staats family lost someone so special to their hearts on February 17th, 2011. Maddie, 4 months old, was with her babysitter when she stopped breathing. They rushed to the hospital but their was nothing they could do. As soon as I read the story I couldn't help but stop everything that I was doing to say a prayer for her and her family and I'll be sure to say another prayer for them before I go to sleep tonight. Please keep the Staats family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this tough time. Be sure to thank God everyday for all the little things that you still have, because you never know if they will be there tomorrow. I hope the family doesn't mind me posting this. It just really touched my heart and opened my eyes to be very greatful and I hope it does for every one.

  1. I saw this story the other day too. How absolutely devestating it must be. May God give them the peace they need to get through this difficult time.

  2. I can't even imagine the heartache they are going through!

  3. I look at my kids everyday and cannot imagine my life without them. The heartache that this family must feel is unimaginable! I hope that one day they can feel joy in having had this little girl as part of their lives even for such a short time.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog.

  4. It is tragic when a child passes. You are so sweet to offer up prayers for the family.

  5. They can use all the support they can get! I just can't imagine going through that. She seems to be a very strong woman and Maddie is with her in spirit everyday and in everything she does.
