March Thank You Letter

 

It has been two years today since my daughter was diagnosed with a debilitating illness.  She is in a great, great place today.  Her physical healing has come from her medication.  But her heart healing has come from Daystar.  Thank you for all you have done to support her.  I thought I would share a poem she wrote with you.

With great love and greater respect,
A Daystar Mom 

I Am

I am a girl who believes in angels because I've been through tough times.
I wonder how we can make our world a better place.
I hear angels laughing in the distance.
I see myself walking out on stage in my Broadway show.
I want all children to get an education.
I am a girl who believes in angels because I've been through tough times. 

I pretend I am a famous actress.
I feel like I can do anything.
I touch my soft warm blanket at night.
I worry that I am not good enough for the world.
I cry at the sight of a hospital bed.
I am a girl who believes in angels because I've been through tough times. 

I understand feeling frustrated.
I say, every thing is okay in the end if it's not okay, it's not the end.
I dream I am a famous actress
I try to reach out and help my community.
I hope other people can someday see me as the nice girl not just the sick girl.
I am a girl who believes in angels because I've been through tough times. 

Thank you for all you have done to support this young girl, her mother and the 886 families that are currently involved in Daystar.  We are humbled by their words and your gracious support.

 

Gratefully,

The Daystar Staff
