Heartbreaking Story

My heart aches for the Steven Curtis Chapman family. Yesterday his 5 year old daughter was killed when accidentally hit in their driveway. I can only begin to imagine the pain this family is having. I pray that they can somehow find peace with themselves and God.

Ironically, many of the songs I listened to after Allison died were his.

Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I hope the media gives them time to heal.

Omg, and by her brother?! I can't even begin to imagine the pain as a parent dealing with the death of your daughter and then also dealing with the pain your son is going through (helping him get through) and dealing with how to deal (yourself) with the fact that is was your son. It's like 3 big whammys all in one. Wow, wow, wow. Is he the one that sings the Cinderella song?? That's one of my favorites and I cry listening to it. Imagine how he will feel now with that song. Wow, I just can't even imagine that.

It brings me to the whole big car thing. I wonder if he was backing out or something? I find I hate my van because it's so big and I can't see directly behind me. I get scared thinking that, not my own children are back there, but that my neighbor's children might be. Unless an adult was standing directly behind me, I don't think I'd see anyone. I think about this every time I go in reverse. I really do hate my van because of this. Actually, we're thinking of selling it. Not only because of that, but other reasons as well.

That is so sad and tragic. I cannot even imagine what they must be going through right now. It's even tougher that it was her brother...

I had not heard this! Makes the Cinderella song sooooooooooo much more tear jerking (and it was already a tear jerker)! My heart just breaks for their family! :( So tragic.

I could not believe this when I read about it today. Just breaks your heart.

I pray that the family is somehow comforted and that the son isn't consumed with guilt. It would be so awful.....
