Isobel from Butterfly House

 July 21, 2011

 I am heartsick, broken.  Dear sweet Isobel, who I held just a month ago, is gone.

Please if you have a heart to adopt PLEASE find a way to do so now. They can not wait.

And PRAY for Lyn and the nanny's at Butterfly House who filled Isobel with love, made her giggle and smile, soothed her tears and held her in their arms... to the end.

Here is the email I received from them. 

"It is with great sadness that we share the news that Isobel has passed away. This brave little
girl exceeded all our expectations – living for longer and with more joy than we originally
thought possible. Isobel was one of our first babies. She was sent to us due to her incurable
liver disease, and she soon became a princess in Butterfly Home. She learnt to charm her
way into the hearts of visitors, and gently tease her brothers and sisters. She was funny and
clever, with a little bit of drama about her too. Most importantly of all, she was loved, and
she reflected that love back to those around her.

Isobel passed away peacefully on the night of Tuesday 19th July in her nanny’s arms. Just
last week she was in great spirits – a cheeky little girl enjoying cuddles, music and playing
silly games. During the time leading up to her death, she was never alone, and the nannies
who love her sang and prayed over her as she slept. This special little princess will be
deeply missed at Butterfly Home. We are forever thankful for the support which allowed
Isobel to live a cherished life."

To You, O Lord, we humbly entrust this child, so precious in Your sight. Take Isobel into Your arms and welcome her into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain, but the fullness of peace and joy with Your Son and the Holy Spirit forever and ever. Amen.
