I recently stumbled upon a blog for a sweet faced little boy named Gavin. B.E.A.UTIFUL. His eyes are sharp, and piercing and his smile is enough to break your heart. The outlook for this little guy was never good. He suffers from Mitochondrial Disease, and over time, his organs have been shutting down. It is believed that today will be his last.
I have never met this family, or even e-mailed them, but this story has shot straight to the core of my body, and I can't stop thinking of them....aching for them....crying for them. I can't explain it, but I can do something. I can pray. I can pray that he lets go, and releases himself to the peace that can only be found in the arms of the Father. I can pray that his family finds peace in knowing his suffering will be over, and that they can go on knowing that they gave him everything that they have. I ask only that you do the same.
