Today begins on a solemn note.
This morning, as i always do, I opened up Jenny and Andrew Scott’s website to read the update on Baby Allie.
This is Jenny’s latest entry:
Monday, Sept. 13th–Day Fifty-Eight

11:20 pm– At 11:05 pm Allie left us for a better place. She has gone to heaven. She passed very peacefully with a room full of love. She was surrounded by family and friends. We are all very sad to see her go but happy that she is no longer in pain. She is now our guardian angel looking down from heaven at us. Thank you all for your continued love and support. Arrangements have not been made yet. In lieu of flowers the family asks that you make a donation in Allie’s name to the Light the Night walk team12 South Angels.

I’ve become very attached to this baby. I’ve watched this family’s story unfold on my computer every morning. These are people I’ve never met, never even spoken to. But, this little girl has touched my life. She had made me appreciate what i have. I think she’s made me become a better mother, a better wife, and a better person. She makes me hug Emily a little tighter and squeeze Joshie a little harder.

i really just don’t have the words. I will pray for the Scott family to find strength through this tough time.

If you have not been following Baby Allie’s story, read a little bit about her on the Scott’s website. She was a very special little girl.

  2. Isn’t it weird how someone we’ve never met can impact our lives so greatly? I too, followed Baby Allie’s story and often had to hold back tears reading Jenny’s posts. This one was different. I couldn’t help but cry and mourn for this family that has strength beyond means that I’ll never know. I find myself going to bed thinking of them and waking up thinking of them. I pray they get through this.
