2nd Annual Sophie The Brave Day

I’ve been reflecting on Sophie’s birthday for the last week and it was such a sweet day. A day that carried a lot of anxiety but also so much happiness.

We visited the hospital and it was so special. I reached our to friends and family on my personal page about wanting to shop for the Child Life department and they showed up in an amazing way! Over $800 was donated to go towards this shopping!

We were able to get a HUGE haul of activity packs, books, and supplies for the prize closets. We got 4 nurse goodie baskets for each of the Oncology units. We were even able to get extension cords and phone batteries for parents as well as laundry pods for Ronald McDonald House.

And we delivered it all!

I love this hospital. I love walking where she walked and seeing the places she loved. I love the people there. They know us in a way that no one else ever will. They knew and loved our girl. They cared for her in her weakest and us in ours. For me, being there feels like going home and the people there feel like family.

It was a sweet day in spite of the sad.

Beauty from ashes.

And next year, little brother will get to visit too.

  3. Hi, I just found your blog from Facebook, and I’ve been sobbing while reading your posts. My daughter is 2 years and 9 months. My heart is breaking for you and your husband. I am so so sorry. I know I don’t know an ounce of your pain, but I see you, and even as a complete stranger, I will never forget your beautiful angel or your family.
