This Breaks My Heart
Ever since the day I found out I was pregnant with Ava, I became a lurker on a couple of message boards for women that were expecting babies in December 2003. It was through the December 2003 Babies board on babycenter.com where I first read about a family with an adorable little baby girl named Allie who was diagnosed with leukemia this past spring. I have followed her story all summer through the mother's online journal and I was incredibly sad to read this week that baby Allie passed away. I can't even imagine what a horrible thing that must be to go through for those parents. This is the link to their online journal, but I'm warning you, don't read it if you aren't ready to cry. It really is heartbreaking. I will never understand why things like this have to happen.
