Gracie Gledhill

This is one of the hardest posts I have ever had to write. Today Gracie Gledhill will go back to heaven. Her family is going to turn off her life support and say goodbye to her. She is 11 months old and is a light in this world.. We've been so touched to be a part of her story. She went in for her second surgery but they found out it would be too risky for her. So she was put on the transplant list. Three days later, a heart for Gracie came but after transplatation, it turned out that she had gotten a bad heart, and they have no other options for her. I cannot begin to imagine what saying goodbye to their baby after 11 months will be like. Join us in saying (many) prayers today that her mommy and daddy, brothers, and sister might feel strength, peace, and courage as they send her back home...

I have been keeping up on her since you first posted about her almost a year ago. I will be praying.

Oh Ave...I know every time you have to post one of these it is so heart wrenching for you. We'll be praying for them. You are surrounded by so many great, strong people like yourselves...

I honestly can't fathom. . . . I'm not strong enough to be able to go thru it.

Hello Avery-
Molly told me not to start reading their blog right now if I was not already a follower. But my heart goes out to them. I am so excited to finally meet you guys tomorrow. I have read and heard so much about you and your sweet Bela. Just today Beth told us about her "hamming" it up at the heart walk. See you soon.
