Light a candle for Cora


I had seen some Twitter updates that one of my friends (@LisaCurcio) was sending out concerning lighting a candle for someone named Cora. It took about 6 times of the same tweet before I finally started checking into it.

I urge you to read the story of Cora and then go right here to light a virtual candle in memory of her life and the impact she had on those who loved her. As a mother my heart broke with Cora's mother, as a mother to a child who was once labeled a "heart baby" I grieved even heavier. Just like Belly, Cora's heart condition was undetected at birth. Unlike my Belly's condition, Cora's was fatal and she left this earth for her Father's arms after just 5 days.

Lighting this candle is doing two things. 1.) It's lit in honor of Baby Cora's life. 2.) It's wrapping our arms around Cora's mother and family, letting them know that we know and are grieving with her.

Thanks Ladies!
