I'd like to request your prayers for part of my family. I just got a call from Allan to let me know that my little step-great-granddaughter passed away. Kaitlyn Rose just turned two years old a week ago. Her mother had surgery a few days ago, and since she was not able to lift anything for a while, her friend was keeping little Kaitlyn and and her three year old sister, Jacqueline. When she went to get the children up this morning, Kaitlyn had died.
To lose a child is devastating, and my granddaughter, Kristi, is grieving deeply, as is my stepdaughter, Amber, and the rest of the family. To add to the emotional trauma, an autopsy is being done to try to establish the cause of her death as there was no physical sign of cause of death and she has not been sick.
One fortunate thing is that the biological mother of my step-kids was visiting while this happened. She is extending her stay in the Seattle area, of course. I've send word that I'll come if I'm needed.
It is hard to believe this precious little girl is gone. Life makes no sense at times like this.
Please remember all the family in your thoughts and prayers.
