Though She Be But Little...

Such a simple post on facebook, no link, no fan-fare. Just a simple heartfelt prayer and thought for a beautiful little girl and a beautiful family.

I can't seem to get the "embed post" thing to work quite right, but here's a link and the text...


This is what love looks like in a family. And, even in the midst of a trial like this one, there is beauty. If you visit the "We Love Lucy" Facebook page, you will see the love shine through every photograph and every post. It's as it should be: a baby girl fighting for her life with parents fighting right along side her.

Quite a stark contrast from the stories we often share in the Orphan Care blogosphere about loss and abandonment in the face of trial. No matter the cause - poverty being chief among the causes - a child is left to fight a battle to survive quite alone.

Not, Lucy. Lucy has an army ... 1344 strong. 19 of whom are wearing Fierce Tees in honor of their Lucy.

Simply Glorious!
