A Broken Heart

Without the scars and various tubes and wires Mia is attached to she looks like any newborn baby....perfect, sweet and completely kissable. Sadly, Mia is not a typical 3 month old. Her little body is fighting so hard just to sustain itself until she is given the wonderful gift of a new heart. As one holds and cuddles Mia you cannot help but have your own heart break for this sweet little baby who is trying so hard to survive! I look at Mia and her mommy and wish I could make all their troubles better but for whatever reason that is not Heavenly Father's plan right now. It has been evidenced time and again what a fighter Mia is and it is my prayer as well as many of yours that she will keep fighting and grow into a beautiful healthy little girl.
Mia has been spiking fevers off and on for a few days and seems to have tummy aches but is continuing to exhibit her will to live. We hope and pray that Mia's wait for a heart will end shortly and she can begin the path to healing. This little baby really would melt your heart if you could meet her. Please continue to keep Mia and her family in your prayers.
Little Baby Mia resting on her tummy!

PS~ Mimi, I am so glad you've enjoyed the Annabelle Basket! Katie Allred's mother, Susie, shared Mia's story with me. Mia has touched our hearts deeply and we pray for a miracle soon!

Hi you don't know me but I have been checking this blog periodically. My kids are members at the YMCA where the bake sale was held and I happen to catch the blog site. Anyways it breaks my heart to see pictures of Little Mia and to hear of her patiently waiting for a new heart. Miracles do happen and I've been praying for Mia and her family for a while now. Just wanted to let you know there are lots of people that don't even know you with you in their hearts.
