Sometimes you don't even have to know people personally in order for your heart to break in a million pieces for them...
The principal at the school in VA where my sister works had one of the most horrible things happen two days ago. While backing out of her driveway on Sunday, she accidentally hit her almost two-year-old son, killing him. As I type these words, the knot in my throat just hardens even more.
This Christian family has one older daughter and tried and tried for a second child. They eventually became pregnant with twins, and the mom was so, so careful to keep herself healthy while carrying these babies. The twins will be two soon...but now they have to celebrate the birthday of only one child while missing her twin brother.
As a parent, can you just imagine the misery they must be going through? My mommy heart is so heavy and aches for them, and I don't even know them at all! I'm sure many of us feel this way for them.
So, please keep this family in your prayers as they prepare for Thursday's burial of little Nicholas Primo, who is now in the arms of Jesus.
