This evening I heard that a friend had been killed in an accident this morning. I'd only met her face to face a few times, but we had made a deep connection via an online support group for the parents of children with Reactive Attachment Disorder. She had 3 children, 2 of them adopted, 1 of them with RAD. Two months ago her husband dropped dead of a massive heart attack. It was a devastating blow for the entire family. I can't begin to imagine how the children will recover from this second blow. Daughter had met all of them. She saw my reaction when I read the news, and asked me what was wrong. When I told her, she asked if we could pray for them right away.
My friend had been blogging about her journey through grief. You can read her blog here: http://munchkinmom.blogspot.com/ (Blogger is being difficult tonight). I ask for prayers for her family. I felt sick when I heard of her husband's death. I don't even know how to describe what I am feeling right now.
