After 9 1/2 LONG months, I finally saw Leightyn in a dream last night. I was in a room that overlooked a gym. All of the sudden the doors opened and the gym filled with kids around Leightyn's age. There Leightyn was! As beautiful as I remember her. She had on her blue zebra shirt, a colorful hairbow, and a huge smile on her face. She was having the greatest time running around and playing with the other kids. I didn't know any other children. Maybe these are all of her new friends in Heaven! She was laughing and loving life....like she did on earth. Thank you God for letting me see my baby and for letting me see that she was happy and ok!
Leightyn was born on July 5, 2005. She was our firstborn and a gift from God. Leightyn lived life to the fullest and was a beautiful sweetheart. She was perfectly healthy and we never had any concerns about her. On August 6, 2010, Leightyn was found unconcious in bed. At the hospital, it was determined that she had a tumor in her brain and on her brain stem. The following evening, August 7th, our little 5 year old went to sing and dance with Jesus. This is her story. Leighyn's Lifesong. Stories of our journey and stories of how God continues to bless us even in our darkness moments.
