This Whole Other World.....

It amazes me all of the time how there is the whole other "cyber world" out there....how all of us, from all parts of the world somehow connect through this thing we call blogging!!! I can't even remember how I first started reading blogs; I do know that the first blog I ever read was Bring The Rain, but I'm not sure how I got there. Anyway, I have read all kinds of stories from all kinds of families...I've read funny things, happy times and sad stories....I've read about pregnancy, new life and families who have lost children. The crazy thing is that you grow close to these people-- people who you've never met in person; you are happy with them, sad with them, laugh and cry with them and comfort them. Most of us don't know each other personally, but somehow (through reading everday), we have all become close to each other...like "part of the family" (if you will).

All that said because there is one blog that I've read for a while now, "O Love That Will Not Let Me Go"....this is a blog about a baby born with Trisomy 18 ( a fatal chromosonal disorder). I have been reading everyday about their sweet little Magdalena and watching how she has grown..... I even commented the other day about how big she was getting. This morning Magdalena went to Heaven.... she blessed her parents with a little more than 5 wonderful months, but I guess her little heart couldn't hold on anymore and she is now with God. And you know what, my heart hurts for this family. After reading about her for so long...watching (through pictures) her grow...reading about the little things she accomplished (which are huge for a Trisomy 18 baby)...reading about the joy and love her parents had for her. It's just sad... I feel sad for them!!

Please go over and leave them some comment love; I can't even imagine how heartbroken they must be now......

Oh that is so sad. Just awful. It is amazing how "familial" us bloggers have become to each other.
