I'm so sad today, learning of this sweet boy Luca departing this world leaving his Momma and Daddies arms straight into the arms of Jesus last night at 6:45pm ....

I know I ask you to pray a lot but please pray for his family in the days to come that God fills their hearts with the strength they will need to move on. That God fills their every need during this painful time. I told Nicole today, the pain is no different every childs story is so different and you find different qualities you fall in love with - each lost I grieve. I love this photo of Luca and his Momma Eva ... so when you see me advocating and endlessly trying to raise awareness - these are the some of the faces I carry in my heart. I hope through my journey you will carry them too because every child matters, every life matters.

His Momma wrote this in her post :::

We are so thankful for Luca, the greatest gift a parent could ever wish for. We hope that he has inspired you to love deeper and have stronger faith. This life will pass in a blink of an eye and we will be together with Luca again.

Rest in peace
