My 5 older grandchildren, ages 1-7, each have a heart for their baby cousin Talita, now 10 weeks old. She was born with a severe heart defect and is on the heart transplant list. They made a sign for her hospital door that says, “Talita, we love you. #cousin crew” The older 4 ask questions about her, visit her, talk to her, sing to her, read to her, and stroke her hair. Some of them decided to make her feel like she isn’t the only baby with heart trouble, so they made dolls look like her by attaching paper strips all over to look like the tubes, braces and wires she has from various IVs, probes, and her breathing tube. Even the youngest has learned to say her name. They all pray for her, too. They really love their little cousin.

What wonderful little cousins Talita has! They are beyond sweet and kind and loving. Talita looks like she knows what's going on, too, with her big eyes. I love the mix of patterns on your page and especially like all those great photos.

This is so very touching and your journaling brought tears to my eyes.  I've wondered how Talita is doing, she's beautiful and all that love and energy must be so healing for her, it's been said how children's prayers are so special.   I wish her well and can't believe how old all your Grandchildren are now.   Your page is really beautiful in so many ways.
