R.I.P. Talia

I was just sitting at my computer getting some work done when I flipped over to Facebook and saw the status on Talia's page--I make a habit of checking it daily. It made me cry. For such a young girl ... a child ... to have gone through what she's gone through it sad enough. For her to have passed away at such a young age is ... overwhelmingly heartbreaking.

I'm thankful that she is no longer in pain and that she is in peace. But as a parent I am overtaken by the extreme sadness that her passing has caused for her family.

My husband and I had the pleasure of sending her a package last year and I remember crying as I wrote her a letter expressing how incredibly impressed we were with her--her skills, her joy, her strength. 
As someone that has gone through and is going through different things with our own children, I can only try to imagine the daily struggles Talia's family has faced. The daily struggles Talia shouldered with such grace and exuberance. 

We were fortunate to have had Talia's presence on this earth at all. And while I'm insanely sad it was cut so short, I KNOW that she has been and will be an incredible inspiration to so many--myself included.

R.I.P. Talia, you were and are such a beautiful little angel.
