I found out about both of those boys yesterday and cried for a very long time, my heartaches for their families. When I got to Claire's daycare I squeezed her a little bit harder and gave her more kisses than she probably wanted. I know that accidents happen and that cancer is scary but for whatever reason those two boys really struck a cord with me.
If you want to read Bens story - Pray For Ben and Ryan Saldana's mom also has a blog if you want to see how adorable their family is - Baby Boy Bakery.
The last few nights have been pretty great, with Ryan taking care of all the cooking I have felt so much more relaxed and having more time to play and goof around with Claire. These will be the times we cherish later and after feeling so sad for those families all day I cherished it even more. I know that I cannot protect Claire forever and that sometimes bad things happen but I will do everything in my power to keep her safe and healthy and I will continue to pray for the families that are struggling right now.
We will be donating to the Saldana family and if you would like to do the same you can do so here - Red Balloons For Ryan
And then you can also donate for Ben and you can find that here - Blue4Ben.
Thinking of you,
