Rest now, Courageous Caitie.

I wasn't really aware of Caitie until I saw a post trending on my Facebook feed, yesterday. I got curious and I couldn't help but read. Caitie was 3 years old and diagnosed with a very rare type of illness. They call it Juvenile Myelomonocytic Leukemia. Her family even had to fly to Singapore hoping for a cure to her disease. It was when I came across her dad's Instagram (@jayjaylucas) and saw all these photos of Caitie that really broke my heart. That's when I started bursting into tears, non stop. I couldn't imagine losing your own child, thus, handling all the pain. Her parents must be really strong and so was Caitie until the very end. She's just a child. There's a lot more ahead of her. And yet she was taken away so young.

You can rest now, little angel. I'm just a stranger, a parent who's praying for you and your family, and I wish you all the happiness now that you're up there, with our creator. No more pain to endure. Smile for us, will you? #courageouscaitie
