Blogging is all about making connections with others. Even though many of us have not met in person, (all 5 of us that were not at BlogHer '09!)we feel a connection to one another because of our blogs, because of the things we write about, because of the stories we share, and the pictures we show.
And, since most of us are parents, we can't help but get attached to the little babies and children we read about, especially those who are sick and need help, thoughts, and prayers. I, like so many of you, started reading MckMama's blog many months ago, even before Stellan was first hospitalized with SVT.
Her blog is captivating because she's a great writer and an amazing photographer. It's not wonder she has such a huge following. It's also no wonder how many lives her baby boy, Stellan, has touched. One look at his cute smile and blue eyes and you're easily drawn in, you know?
Today Stellan is fighting hard in the hospital, and I wish more than anything he gets better, and fast. Reading MckMama's updates on Twitter are heartbreaking, and I feel helpless.
So, regardless of your religion, or faith, or beliefs, can you take a minute today to send good thoughts and/or prayers to baby Stellan?
Edited to add: Stellan is now at home, doing so much better! And I am so happy for him and his whole family! God bless them.
