Prayers for Layla Grace

A little girl in Anna's class at daycare has a little sister named Layla Grace. This sweet little angel was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma last May when she was only about 16 months old, and her little body has been fighting it with numerous treatments since then

Very recently, her parents received the heartbreaking and unspeakable news that Layla Grace is losing her battle with cancer and that they should prepare for the end.

Here is an excerpt from her mom's journal yesterday:

"Please pray for her comfort; both physically and spiritually. Please pray that
she knows how much God loves her and she isn’t scared about what she is feeling
and what is happening. Please pray for minimal pain and suffering. Please pray
for Claire and Jenna. They are so confused and uncertain about what is
happening. They cannot fully grasp the finality of her impending death. I can
hardly grasp the finality of what is happening."

This family is definitely in my thoughts and prayers today. Please keep them in yours, and even send them a little note. It helps to know that people care.
