I am thankful for this book in so many ways- sharing Lila's story with other parents, meeting Patti and forming a friendship, spreading love and awareness, and also for the ability to express my own sadness through a photograph... When Patti told me she was thinking of using a rocking chair on the cover, I knew exactly in my mind what she was thinking- how it must look when a child drops a well-loved stuffed animal and never comes back to pick it up.. It's sad, but beautiful all at the same time. Just like the stories of our lives- sometimes sad, but beautiful when we know the Hope of the Lord and the promise of Heaven.
