Again, I’m speechless!! The support that I’ve received from my first post has been awesome. God’s plan is always so much bigger than any plan that we have for ourselves. Who knew? I didn’t!! God did. And that’s always the most important person. So basically, this post is just a post of thanks!! Thank you for subscribing. Tweeting. Posting as FaceBook stat’s. Sharing…ALL of the support means a lot. I know now that my Chance’s death was not in vain. Her legacy will live on. And she will be saving lives.
After she passed away, Osceola High School(my brother Zrano’s school) had a tree planting ceremony and they planted a tree in Chance’s honor. Well, the science teacher came to me and said that she wanted to talk to me. She asked how I was doing and I told her that it was rough because I missed my baby. I missed everything about her and that I just felt empty. She told me that it was expected. But she told me that she spoke with Chance! Now, I’m not the type that believes in Psychics or Mediums but when she started speaking she told me things that only family members and people who were at the hospital would know. She told me that Chance said that she didn’t know how she got there, to heaven, but it was fast. Like a flash. She said that she saw each one of my family members in the hospital and she saw things that I confirmed with them later. Like she said Chance saw me in the PICU bathroom crying and praying. She said she didn’t know why we were so sad because she was happy. She spoke on how Chance says that she was fine. The teacher says that she asked Chance what she was doing and Chance said that her job was to “Help the babies!” Now right now I can’t share everything that she said Chance told her but one day I will. But I said that to say that when she said that she was helping the babies, I thought that she meant she would be an angel to the ones that were sick in hospitals but I know now that she’s helping and saving the babies EVERYWHERE!! Her purpose is to get awareness out about the falling furniture. Securing the televisions. I wondered why on earth was she climbing on the dresser. I knew she was curious and fearless but I had no idea that it would end tho way. Maybe had I known I would have secured the dresser. Or mounted Brandon’s television on the wall. But like many others, I didn’t think it could happen to me.
But the thing is, these are items that we never think to do. Furniture tip overs happen all the time. We just don’t hear about them. This is why I’m trying my hardest to get the message out. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else. I know that I can’t save every child. But if I can keep just ONE child with their families one more day, Chance’s purpose has been filled. The pain and heartache that my family is feeling…it’s unexplainable. Chance has not been the only child to pass away this way so I want to honor the other children as well. Their deaths were not in vain either. We’re all in this together. Your hurt is my hurt. Your pain is my pain. Together we’ll get through this together.
We’ll have another day, another “Chance”…
