Every now and then, we hear a story that makes us cry, but also...
...reminds us that there is good in the world.
Something that is tragic and sad, but also uplifting, and life-affirming.
Last month, the Crisis Nursery learned about Baby Lucas. Lucas was born on June 8, 2018, with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) and double outlet right ventricle (DORV) condition, two congenital heart defects that would ultimately prove fatal. While his life was unfairly cut short at just five months, during his time on earth he brought love and light to all that knew him, including everyone at the children's hospital who aided his fight to survive.
He, like all of our kiddos, helps us remember how innocent and precious children are...and that we have a sacred duty to keep them safe and healthy.
But the story doesn't end there.
