miss ruby jane

it all started with a tweet sent out by @loveTaza. i thought it was funny because her daughter eleanor (love that name btw) is just starting solids and blows whenever she feeds her now. it made me smile because my son sneezed oatmeal on me last week and i had oatmeal all in my hair. and then since i hadn’t stopped by her blog in a while, i popped over and was jealous of how stylish they are admired how adorable her family is. and then i read about ruby jane, who she heard about through another friend. ruby just passed away waiting for a liver donor. i can’t even imagine the pain they are going through. there is a “moms helping miss ruby jane” auction going on now through august 22nd to help pay for ruby’s prior hospital bills. i just bid and if it is in your budget, i hope you will too.  i hugged “eep” a little longer this morning.

    I am personal friends with Ruby’s mom and dad, Ani and Matt. The whole thing has been heart-breaking, but it is the amazing hearts, love and support of so many good people that are helping them get through this, I’m sure. Thanks for posting!

    Oh, this brought tears to my eyes! No parents should have to deal with their child passing away before they do. 🙁 Going to check out the auction now!!
