I am so sorry for your loss. I do not know your family, but after reading Aila's story I had to take a moment to offer my condolences. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a baby, your pain must be immeasurable. I know that there are no words that I can say to take away your pain, but please take comfort in the account at Luke 8:49-56. There we are given the real life account of Jesus resurrecting a young girl back to the arms of her parents. We are promised that same type of resurrection. When this takes place all sickness, death and pain will be gone forever and you will be reunited with Alia under perfect circumstances. (Revelation 21:4) So even though your time with Alia was far too short, in the near future you'll have her forever. In the meantime, even though the pain may at times seem insurmountable, rest assured that God will give your family the strength necessary to endure. (Psalm 94:17-19) Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincerest condolences.

When I look at Aila's beautiful face I see hope. Sometimes words can't say what you feel in your heart. My our holy mother in heaven help Chelsea, Mark and Braxton.

I don't know your family, but I met Aila's Aunt Brittany not too long ago and she shared her story with me. St V's was a second home to me for awhile due to my youngest son having Wiliams Syndrome and some health issues. We spent many nights there this year. With the follow ups and visits we've made to St V's I always thought of your little girl and said an extra prayer for her. She seems to have been very special and touched many lives. My prayers are with you and your family through this devastating time. I will pray for peace and comfort that only God can give

We are broken hearted to hear about baby Aila. We have followed all the posts and videos and prayed so hard for her since she was born. She was a true fighter but she is in a better place where she will never have any more pain. We will continue to pray for her Mom & Dad and big brother and all of her family. She was loved by so many people. What a tragic loss. Our hearts are heavy with sadness. Rest in Peace Precious baby Aila

Aila, thank you for the love, beauty, strength and joy you brought to my life. You were only here with us for a short time but you taught me so much. I can't begin to say how much I love you. I will miss you so, so much but you will forever be a part of me and have a piece of my heart that is only yours. I love you Princess Your GeeGee
