While reading several other blogs and seeing things posted on Twitter, I came to read the story of a little girl, Getty, who is only a few months younger than Jack and who has been fighting the good fight over SMA1.
Tears filled my eyes as I read through blog posts about her trials and triumphs and I wept as I watched the video of her fishing with her Mom. Such a strong and brave little girl who has already touched the lives of many.
Immediately I felt a longing inside of me to do something to help her. I noticed that there is a button on the site to purchase Lullabies for Getty on iTunes where the proceeds would go to The Getty Owl Foundation, which helps to find a cure for SMA.
Since buying the album last week, Jack and I have been listening to these songs in the car, during breakfast, as we play, and I truly have to say that they are beautifully written and are becoming favorite songs of ours.
Do yourself a favor and help a little girl who is battling an awful disease and in the meantime, purchase the Lullabies album and listen to the songs with your children.
