  52. Noah and Julie,
    My heart is broken, and yet I know it pales in comparison to your pain. Magdalena touched my heart every time I read your blog. My husband knew her, my daughter knew her, and my extended family knew her. You have all touched our lives in a way that words can never express. As I weep this morning, I am on my knees praying for you. Praying for a peace that only God can provide. A peace that goes beyond our comprehension. I am extremely sorry for your loss. We will all miss that sweet little face!
    much love,

    "I praise him for when the time comes for Magdalena when he heals Magdalena. She will no longer have clubbed feet, clenched fists, or a confused mind. I can see her running to Jesus, knowing exactly who He is, and wrap her arms around Him. It is a beautiful picture that allows me to let go of my selfish thoughts and know that the life given to her is better than one I could ever imagine."

  75. I was directed to your site a few months ago by mutual friends of ours in the States and became addicted to Magdalena's story. Although we have never met, I have been reading your blog - including all the back dated entries - and laughed and cried along with you.

    Her sweet nature and your unending love for her has reached across the ocean and touched my heart.

    I wanted to write for the first time to let you know what an inspiration your family has been to me.

  76. Oh Julie and Noah!

    I am heartbroken and cannot even imagine how you must feel. Your precious Magdalena was so loved and so blessed to have you two for her parents.

    I celebrate her all too short life with you and so mourn her passing. She was truly such a blessing and I cannot thank you both enough for sharing her with all of us.

    I pray that God holds you close in the palm of His hand and comforts you with His peace that passes all understanding until you are reunited with your amazing little girl. I pray you receive much comfort knowing she is perfectly safe in the arms of our Savior. Something we cannot do for our children here on earth. I pray you feel all of our prayers and love. You two are awesome.

    Love,

  87. I just found this poem and thought you should read it...


    WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME....

    When tomorrow starts without me,
    And I'm not there to see,
    If the sun should rise and find your eyes
    All filled with tears for me:
    ~~~
    I wish you wouldn't cry
    The way you did today,
    While thinking of the many things,
    We didn't get to say
    ~~~
    I know how much you love me,
    As much as I love you,
    And each time that you think of me,
    I know you'll miss me too:
    ~~~
    But when tomorrow starts without me,
    Please try to understand,
    That an angel came and called my name,
    And took me by the hand.
    ~~~
    And said my place was ready,
    In heaven far above,
    And that I'd have to leave behind
    All those I dearly love.
    ~~~
    But when I walked through heaven's gates,
    I felt so much at home.
    When God looked down and smiled at me,
    From His great golden throne,
    ~~~
    He said, "This is eternity.
    And all I've promised you.
    Today your life on earth is past,
    But here life starts anew."
    ~~~
    "I promise no tomorrow,
    But today will always last,
    And since each day's the same way
    There's no longing for the past.
    ~~~
    "So when tomorrow starts without me,
    Don't think we're far apart,
    For every time you think of me,
    I'm right here, in your heart.
    ~~~

    You don't know me but I used to work with Robyn Dickson who was next door to you when Magdalena was born. As your precious Magdalena slipped into Jesus' arms today, she was greeted by my precious son Nelson, who would have celebrated his 5th birthday today. Tomorrow will be 4 years ago that we lost him to CHD's. I truly know first hand the pain and emptiness you feel and it neve goes away - it just seems to get a little easier with each passing year. You remain in my prayers for strength and comfort. May the Lord continue to hold you in his arms!

    I have never posted before, but I would check your blog everyday and check on sweet Magdalena. I was shocked at the news today. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers as you go through one of the hardest things to ever go through. Your strong faith in God is amazing!!

    I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet Magdalena. I have followed your blog for awhile and was hoping she would be able to beat the odds. Though I am sad she is gone, I am looking forward to the day when I will meet her in heaven. God bless you and your family.

    I have been following your blog for the last couple of months and even though I do not know you personally, I loved to see pictures and updates of your sweet little angel. When I went to check your blog today, I was shocked and immediately started crying. I am sorry for your loss and I can't even imagine what you are going through right now. Just know that so many people around the world have been touched by you and your daughter and we all are praying for you and your family at this time.

  123. God gives special babies to special people. I believe He gave Magdalena
    Grace to you because He knew how very much you would love her and that you would know that she was on this earth to bring glory to His name! May the God of all comfort be with you now as you give that precious little girl back to her Creator, the Lover of her (and your) soul!

  127. Some people spend 70 or 80 years trying to do something useful with their lives. Magdalena has touched more people and spread God's love more in a few months than I have in 32 years. She showed strength and determination with every breath she took, and reminded us all how precious every breath is. And today God has told her, "Well done, good and faithful servant."

  141. My heart is sad. After all the reading I've done on T18 and saw how much Magdalena was thriving, I really thought everything would be just fine and she would beat the odds and maybe she didn't really have T18! It's funny how even so far removed we all have the same hopes and prayers as you probably did too. Magdalena had become part of my vocabulary! I loved seeing her beautiful face, sharing her inspiring story with my friends, and reading her updates. Thank you for sharing her with us. Thank you for opening our eyes to see so much more from this world. I hope the Lord's peace covers you as you find a way to cope.

    I was so surprised to read about Magdalena's passing this morning. I cried for over an hour and still tear up every time I think about her, but I know that the grief that my heart feels is nowhere near what you guys are feeling. Just know that she touched my life and so many others! As weird as it may seem, I think all of us in "blogland" loved her in our own way and we will be grieving with you. God hold you close as he is holding Magdalena close in his arms right this very moment!

    I cannot begin to express how sorry I am for your loss. I ran across your blog a few months ago and check it every day to see how your precious angel was doing. Even now my eyes are tearing up so I know I have no comprehesion of what you are going through. I wanted to let you know that though her time here was short, she touched my life everyday that I read your blog and I know that touch will stay with me all of my life. Thank you for sharing your blessing with me! I will always remember Magdalena.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says: 'There, she is gone!' there are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: 'Here she comes!'"

    Jesus lives and so shall I!
    Death, they sting is gone forever.
    He who deigned for me to die
    Lives! The bonds of death to sever
    He shall raise me from the dust!
    Jesus is my hope and trust

    No guilt in life, no fear in death:
    This is the power of Christ in me.
    From life's first cry to final breath,
    Jesus commands my destiny.
    No power of hell, no scheme of man
    Can ever pluck me from His hand;
    'Till He returns or calls me home
    Here in the power of Christ I'll stand!

You shared your life and your angel with us and we are forever grateful. You taught us to celebrate life!! Live each day for today because no one is promised tomorrow. Thank you for sharing sweet Magdalana with us. I was once told that everyone on Earth has a job, and when you complete that job, the Lord calls you home. At times, it may take years for someone to do what they were put here to do, and others no so much. Magdalena completed her task in 5 short but meaningful months. God Bless Her!! She is now where we all strive to be one day. My prayer for you is that you may remember and cherish your past but look forward to your future :) because one day you will be reunited and I can only imagine what it will be like. With love!

    I have followed your blog for months and would check in on Magdalena daily. When you posted the other day about "Reality" I was so sad because to tell you the truth I had forgot she was sick. I was just hoping it was a fluke the doctors got it wrong. When I saw you post my heart sank I am so sorry for you and your family. I know nothing anyone says can take your pain away but I just wanted to tell you that I think you and Noah are such great parents and Magdalena couldn't have picked better people to carry her through her journey. You constantly talked about how you wanted HER peace and comfort to come first and that is a true testament to your faith which has been such a blessing. Even though Magdalena is in a place we can only dream about I can imagine how you hurt for her so I will be praying for you and your family. May God give you peace and comfort during this season and the years to come as you continue to share Magdalena's life and purpose.

    And then the cheering in Heaven began to lessen, and all was quite so everyone could hear.
    "Oh my beloved, was your earthly experience everything you hoped?"

    "Oh yes Father," Magdalena answered breathlessly as she clung to her Heavenly Creator. "My life was so beautiful. I was showered in love and devotion, and celebrated by my parents every earthly minute. My story moved so many, and brought so many closer to You. I could not have asked for more. Thank you for my life Jesus, and thank you for my parents. I cannot wait to tell my brothers and sisters all about them, and what beautiful lives they will have on earth when it is their time. What blessings they will receive!"

    Then the cheers and singing continued as all of Heaven rejoiced for the return on their Dear Little One, and for the gift of so many souls being brought closer to God.

    You are in our prayers,
