{ do you believe in miracles? }

because this little girl needs one desperately. Little Layla Grace is just two years old, the same age as my Olivia, but she is fighting a horrible disease called neuroblastoma. I came across her story via twitter the other day, and I've been thinking about her and her family since then. It's such a heartbreaking story, and I can't even imagine what that family must be going through. But I do know, that no mother should ever have to feel that pain, and no baby should have to suffer as little Layla has. I don't know this family at all, but I just feel like I need to do something to help. So, I'm going to donate 20% of my sales from my Olive and Ollie etsy shop throughout the rest of this month to them. I encourage you to pray for a miracle for this sweet baby girl, and I will do the same.

Layla Grace lost her battle two days ago. It's been an emotional rollercoaster for me just "watching" on the sidelines, and I cannot even fathom what the Marsh family is going though. But, I wanted to update you all and let you know that I raised $120 from my shop that I will be donating to them. Also, my dress that was part of Lesley's auction was sold for a whopping $70, so that's even more money raised for them. I really wish there was more than I could do, besides offer my prayers of course, but at least it's a little something. May God bless them all.
