I continue to pray, for strength for this day, for grace specific to this pain, for laughter in the sorrow that lightens the heaviness, for peace as solid as the ground you stand on, and for healing to break through in blinding light to the glory of the God you so faithfully serve.

Dear sweet Kate, 

I have been following your posts and praying for you for over 5 years now.  Sometimes I feel like I know you and that we have been friends all this time.  Even though we have never met, I want you to know that I pray for you as often as I can.  When I pray for my children, I also pray for you!  I wanted to tell you a little bit about myself.  I am married and have four wonderful children, a daughter-in-law and 2 sweet grandchildren.  My oldest child is 28 and my youngest is 10.  My oldest child is biologically my child and the last three are all adopted.  I am the director of children's ministry at a wonderful church in Memphis, Tennessee.  
St. Jude hospital is in Memphis.  I have been blessed to be able to visit that wonderful hospital and even volunteer a little bit.  Sadly, some of my favorite people have been patients at St. Jude.  I was there about a month ago and I saw this beautiful young lady and she reminded be so much of you!  
Please remember that I am praying for you and believing that God does work miracles.  Thank you so much for letting me be a very small part of your life!

Hi Sweet Girl,!
Just checking in and hoping you had a good Saturday.
Kate, look forward for a package to arrive next week. I'm not sure how long it'll take to get to California. I live pretty far away from you. I get icky weather and you get nice weather. :0) 
A shout out to all the Mcraes. Happy Weekend to all.

We totally understand.  Sometimes there are not words for our situations.  Just as sometimes we need so much to pray to God in our awful situations, and yet all we can say is, "Lord help me" -  He knows what we mean.  Our hurt and heartache is so overwhelming that we can't even think of the needed words. 

Take time for yourself and try to make things as easy on yourself as you can.  We don't have to have a play-by-play of the situation.  We know it is not good, so we can pray for you and Kate, knowing He is listening and we pray believing He will intercede. 

Looking at this latest picture of Kate, it shows how grown up she has become.  Not long ago, she looked like a little girl with a baby face, now she looks like a teenager, and a beautiful young lady.  We love her.  Thank you for sharing your very personal story, Carolyn

Not sure how I found your page...the childhood cancer world is a small one. This is beautifully written. You do an amazing job of putting words to emotions and a reality that is so difficult to describe...always pointing to Him even in your sorrow. Thank you for sharing, even in the midst of your pain.

I can only imagine you as parents going through this for so long. I think God must be very close to you to keep you going. I know he is with Kate all the way too. I have never known a child to be so aware of him.
I had a close friend whose little girl had cancer of the spine. They did everything possible but Dana went to heaven at age 4.I never once heard any of them mention God.I have learned he is with us and talks to us if we just listen to him. I have experienced this many times in my older age. I know for a fact Kate and you hear him,as no mere human could endure what you have been through without him holding you up. I add my prayers daily to all the other wonderful people who have made this journey with you from afar.

I pray that God holds you all as close as he held me when I was in the midst.
I pray for continued strength and unwavering faith for two amazing people, Aaron and Holly who through all the madness have never forgotten that Olivia and Will need you also. 
But most of all, I pray for total and complete healing for your sweet Kate...
