My Heart is Breaking
As many of you know, I post on a message board for moms to be and new moms. On the multiples board that I post on there is a family that has had the most tragic month anyone could ever experience. On January 24th her 5 month old twin girls were diagnosed with Weirdnig-Hoffman Disease. This is a rare genetic disease which causes their lungs to slowly give because their muscles are no longer able to support them. These sweet girls have the most severe form. Yesterday one of their twins lost her battle and today both sisters met in heaven. Please keep Brook and Jake in your thoughts and prayers, as well as their baby girls Carynne and Sydney. They knew this day would come, but no one ever imagined their fight would end only a month after it was diagnosed.
