Jake

Over the past few years, I've come to know a little bit about a really amazing kid named Jake through the stories told by his equally amazing mom.

Jake was born fighting an uphill battle, and he fought like hell. Jake died on Monday, he was 2.

Would you all please take a few minutes today to go read a bit about Jake, and offer his mom what comfort you can?

The ultimate nightmare. So very, very heartbraking.

Oh my god how sad. What a sweet little boy.

Done.

I can't think of anything worse than losing a child. What a darling little guy he was.

Even though my daughter was older, it was still almost unbearable to watch.


Thanks for sharing and letting us help.

So sad! My heartfelt prayers are with their family.

I can hardly see to type through the tears. What a heartbreaking thing to have to endure. I can't even imagine...

Oh my God, so sad. Outliving my children is my worst nightmare, as I'm sure it is for all parents.

Jake sounds like such a sweet little boy.

I am sobbing. Sobbing so much that my husband got off the couch to come over and hug me; to see if he could bring me anything. I cannot imagine losing a child. I would die. I am sure of it. I am so incredibly lucky that my bear is upstairs sleeping in her crib, healthy.

God bless Jake and his family. Thanks for bringing us to Jake's mama, Beth. I hope the words of strangers can offer her just a teensy bit of peace.

You are so sweet. I am so glad that you are such a great mom. You cherish Mia each and every day. It is a great thing to read about you guys and it makes me so happy.

This is beyond NOT FAIR. The kid barely got a toehold in this life. I'm headed over there now.

Thank you for posting this. My twin nieces slipped away from us a few days after their birth last year. I have a pair of fireflies tattooed on my ankle, a reminder of the girls, who made me think of lightning bugs, sharing their light with us for a moment before fading back into the twilight.

Meet the Fish

I want to get a pet duck and keep it in the bathtub.
I am addicted to chap stick and altoids.
I am freakishly flexible.
