Somber

The news of Carly G.'s unexpected passing has been filling my heart and mind.   I first read the news from her mom on Facebook just as I was on my way out for the afternoon.   When I was able to get back to the computer late last night I was feeling lost.

This blogging community is pretty amazing.  The sharing, the growing, the friendship, the support.  It brings us close.   Sharing our joys and challenges makes things easier.  But this.  This is impossible to understand.  Our virtual Down syndrome family, related by extra DNA, is grieving for the loss of this spunky little girl.

Our hearts goes out to Joany, Paul, Ashleigh and Brad.

This community is unbelievable. We love and laugh and grieve together. "Meeting " is not necessary, we are all in this together. We all lost Carly...
