This story really touched me when I read about it yesterday. I see that Instapundit has linked it as well. With all the horrible news we hear day in and day out, this is one that will definitely tug at your heart-strings.
Here is the story:
Just before her sixth birthday, Elena Desserich was diagnosed with brain cancer and given 135 days to live. She lived 255 days, passing away in 2007. After her death, Elena’s parents, Brooke and Keith, found hundreds of notes from Elena hidden around the house — in between CD cases, between bookshelves, in dresser drawers, in backpacks….
"It just felt like a little hug from her, like she was telling us she was looking over us"
Read more about it on the website her parents created to support a cure for her illness.
I have no doubt that her parents now know they'd had an angel in the house.
