I was jealous all the attention she got for being the new baby in the house. I was even jealous of how lucky she was for having a father that adores her because I grew up without my father. However, after seeing her in her hospital crib, I later realized I missed her annoying little voice. I even missed her touching everything, her wild hair, and most of all her beautiful eyes and contagious smile. A smile that I hadn’t seen in days. I found myself praying for her more and more.

Although she had been exceedingly ill in previous months, she never seemed weaker, and her condition only worsened as days passed.
