Kambri

In september my twin sister called be to inform me she was going to have her baby the following week, and she wanted me to be there. I flew up, and my sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named kambri. It wasn't long though before we found out she was really sick, the next few weeds were a mad rush of tests to try to figure out what was wrong with poor little kambri. When blood tests came back they said she had SMA, which is a rare genetic disease, and the number one genetic killer of children under the age of two. We were told kambri probably wouldn't live to be much older than five if we were lucky. My sister at that point just wanted it over, she didn't want to get any more attached to her if it was all going to change to pain. I decided I would take care of kambri, and give her a loving home. Unfortunately 3 days later she passed away. It hurts so bad. It hasn't even been two months since she died, and it just sucks. It's not fair to her or anyone who loved her. I constantly want to cry. I need strength that I can't find in myself.

It's too bad there aren't more people like you in this world. I know people say they would do anything for their family but that really is above and beyond what I think most would do. It takes a big heart to do something so compassionate for someone. Sorry about the loss.
