Can you help?

Jeremy and Leah Tuggle are expecting identical twins, Carson and Jason. However, doctors have diagnosed Jason with anencephaly. This condition is incompatible with life. Every effort is being made to keep the babies in the womb until 32 weeks gestation to allow Carson to develop. Carson is expected to be a healthy baby boy. Jason may survive for a few days, or only a few hours. Both parents work minimum wage jobs and times are difficult. Leah will be hospitalized in Sacramento for a considerable amount of time and Jeremy wants to be there at Leah's side to support her. Lawncrest Chapel in Redding will donate a major amount of costs associated with burial, but approximately $1,100 will not be covered. If you can help, please send contributions to N&N Inc. (for Tuggle twins) PO Box 494730 Redding, CA 96049

To The Child In My Heart
O Precious tiny, sweet little one
You will always be to me
So perfect, pure and innocent
Just as you were meant to be.
We dreamed of you and your life
And all that it would be
We waited and longed for you to come
And join our family.
We never had the chance to play,
To laugh, to rock, to wiggle.
We long to hold you, touch you now
And listen to you giggle.
I'll always be your mother.
He'll always be your dad.
You will always be our child,
The child we had.
But now you're gone.....but yet you're here.
We'll sense you everywhere.
You are our sorrow and our joy
There's love in every tear.
Just know our love goes deep and strong.
We'll forget you never-
The child we had, but never had,
And yet will have you forever.
