Four Leaf Clover

Eight months ago I was scrolling through the “Discover People” feed when I came across a picture of a little baby in green headphones. I thought that it was just the sweetest thing I had seen in awhile.Flash forward about a month and that same little baby came up in that feed, weird.

My instinctual curiosity had me clicking on the photo and I read the caption.

I was devastated to see that this three month old baby had just been diagnosed with liver cancer.

Immediately afterwards I began to follow @keeley_ruth through her journey into a very hard and dark place that I could never imagine going to myself.

There were times that I sobbed for Clover, this courageous baby girl.

I would pray for her, I told people her story and I kept posting heart felt comments for her family to see in hopes that it would somehow help.

There must be a thousand degrees of separation between us but I felt as though I knew Clover and her family personally.

After a very difficult time, serious treatment and surgery Clover is now in remission.

This past Friday I received this letter and photo in the mail.

There are no words to express my gratitude for this gesture.

It truly makes me appreciate this bond and sense of community amongst mothers everywhere.

It is nice to know that there are still good people out there and it proves that it truly takes a village to raise a child.

Amen to this beautiful village that we are so lucky to be a part of.

Cheers to you @keeley_ruth for your strength, honesty and kindness it’s truly a beautiful thing.
