Today is a day that is so very sad to many of us in the Down Syndrome community. Our hearts are all breaking after the tragic news that our dear little friend, Carly, unexpectedly died today. Her mom had posted on facebook that she got sick quick and a few hours later, she posted that her sweet angel was now in heaven....our whole community is shocked and saddened by this tragic news. Its put us all in a whirl wind of emotions.
We have been blessed to have Mayson magically come into our lives and with that we have become apart of a wonderful family. Some you have meet, some you feel like you have known forever, even though you havent. It's something special we get to be apart of just because of one extra chromosome. There is bond that no one can ever take away. Being apart of this family can be tough as well. Many of these beautiful kids have to fight hard to live, and as a family we are there through the good and the bad right, along beside them. Carly wasnt sick, she had fought as a new born and had her heart fixed. And then later fought leukemia, and won. She had been leukemia free since 2004. Why she had to go now, is something thats hard to understand. Her life was cut to short. It just doesnt seem fair. :( Please, take a moment to say a prayer for the George family after their tragic loss. May you rest in peace sweet Carly.
