She Has Fallen Off The Cliff

As I write this, Nina lays quietly sleeping but today was not a peaceful day!

Today Nina fell off the cliff.

Today we fell off the cliff.

Today was the day we have all been praying would not come.

Today hour by hour Nina slipped further and further away from us.

Today Nina started having major difficulties breathing.

Today Nina can barely swallow.

Today Nina said that her spit was stuck in her neck (the worst possible indicator!).

Today death planted his hideous, monstrous being next to my precious daughter.

Today I am dying slowing myself!


  1. I pray God carries you through as peacefully as humanly possible. I pray Ninas last moments are pain free. Please keep us updated. You have thousands of people praying for you and crying along side you. Nina has touched many lives. May God ease your unimaginable pain....

  2. Praying for Nina and each of ya'll right now. I found this blog from a photographer that photographed the day at the zoo and have been reading and praying ever since. I'm praying for a miracle for Nina and also that each of you will feel God's comfort and arms wrapped around you as you go through this horrible ordeal. I pray that Nina will be comforted and not be scared as she is having troubles. Keep us updated and we are praying for you. I have been sharing with friends, on my blog, and facebook. We are praying.

  3. My family is praying for you along with everyone else, my friends in Christ. We're praying for God's peace for Nina and all of you. Our hearts are wrenching with you. We're praying Revelations 21:3-4, that God will with you and wipe away all the tears your crying until you all meet again in Paradise. God's peace to you all.

  4. Sweet Mommy, feel the love of God holding you closer than He has ever held you before. Feel the power of that love infusing you with supernatural strength, for when you are weak, He will be your strength. God is there and will not leave your side. He is with Nina. He will not leave her side. Sweet Mommy, feel the prayers of those who are strangers in the flesh but family in the Spirit surrounding you. We will hold up your arms in prayer. May that give you strength. We will hold your little girl in prayer. For as long as it takes, we will continue to pray and believe for a miracle. Our love is pouring out to you. We stand with you in faith.

  5. I am praying still for a miracle and thinking always of you and your family. May God bring you and your family peace during this difficult fight.

  6. i love you and your lovely nina, rosy. praying for you and your beautiful family tonight, as i have every night for the past months.

    this beautiful story of love is an inspiration to us all.

    my love and prayers for you and your loved ones.

  7. Oh Rosy... My heart breaks! I have no words only loving thoughts and prayers for all of you. May God hold Nina close and comfort each one of you down this path. I pray and pray for God to grant you much guidence and peace.

    Love, Hugs and Prayers....

  8. You all are in my prayers during this difficult time.

  9. It breaks my heart that your sweet baby is going through this. I can't imagine the pain you are all experiencing. Praying for your sweet beautiful Nina and your entire family tonight. I wish you all comfort and peace.

  10. All of you are in my prayers. Love and peace to each of you in this difficult time.

  11. You have not been far from our thoughts and prayers for several days now. Grace, comfort, peace and mercy to you all.

    Rolf and Trish

  12. Although we have never met, we, too, are walking the unbearable road of losing a child. We have heard so much of your sweet daughter and your loving family from mutual Santa Barbara friends. To know you are facing Nina's final days is unimaginable and we are so, so deeply sorry. Your family has been in our thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. Sincerely, Victoria, Bill and Gwendolyn Strong

  13. He is there to catch you as you fall off the cliff.
    Psalm 46:1-2
    God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.
    May our God's strength and peace invade and surround you as you walk through this dark valley. We pray without ceasing for all of you.

  14. Dear Rosy,
    Nina has been in my thoughts all day and I have been praying. So many times today I checked your blog, and when there were no updates, I went back to the beginning and read through several entries and gazed at the pictures of your lovely family. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God is with you. He is with Nina, and Teddy and Todd. He is your strength through this deep trial. He cries with you.

    Many prayers and hugs,
