The week after we returned from Philadelphia we were told about a family that had moved into our neighborhood that were expecting a baby with CHD. We were able to meet Bryan and Carrie shortly after. I have been so humbled, and my faith strengthened by knowing this great family.
I would meet Carrie in the hall at church and we would cry and talk about our special heart kids- both named Logan. Their Logan had a different journey planned for this earth though. When I met Carrie she was 7 months pregnant and the doctors had told her that her baby's heart defects were so severe that surgery was not an option. My heart broke every time I thought of what they had to face as a family. I have been amazed at the insight, faith, and peace I have felt in EVERY conversation I have had with Carrie- here I was trying to be a support to her, and I felt like she was always reassuring me and strengthening me. Carrie and Bryan were hand picked as the BEST parents to such a perfect, sweet baby girl who we had the honor and blessing of meeting.
Meeting Miss Logan Rylee-
She was born on St. Patrick's Day and lived a "Lucky" 7 days on this Earth. Her parents biggest hope was to be able to hold her alive, and I prayed every day that they would get this wish and be able to bring her home- they got both. It is not my story to tell, but they felt like every day with her was a miracle. Her parents cherished every single second with her, and I feel honored I was able to meet her and hold her. She returned to live with her Heavenly Father last night. I knew it would be soon, but the news is still breaking my heart.
She is absolutely PERFECT!
