A Soul For Ciarra


A Soul For Ciarra

Amanda was very close to her grandmother. Grandma had showed her the world and opened her eyes to new cultures and the beauty of the Earth. They were always off on adven- tures. She loved her grandma so much! So the bad news that grandma's cancer was back, broke her heart. Soon after, Amanda found out that she was going to have her first baby. She ran to tell her grandma the good news. Grandma would be the only one that thought that this was good news, for Amanda was not married. Amanda was in love with a sailor and he loved her too, so they decided to tie the knot and make things right. They both knew that his ship would be gone when the baby came, and they knew that it was not going to be easy, for both of them, but they had no idea how hard. Grandma's cancer became so bad that Kemo, wouldn't help anymore, she was given six months to live. Amanda cried all the time, praying that God would let grandma see her baby, before he took her, but God had other plans. Grandma slipped into a coma and was fading fast. Amanda's pregnancy was coming to an end, but not fast enough. After, coxing from family members, Amanda walked into grandma's room and sat down. She began to tell grandma how much she loved her and how much she wanted her to see the baby. She then took a deep breath and with tears rolling down her cheak, she said to grandma, "you don't have to wait grandma, I don't want you to suffer anymore, the baby and I will be fine". The next morning, Amanda would get a call, that her grandma had past away. She was crushed and relieved at the same time. She would miss her grandma so much, but she hated seeing grandma suffer. A week to the day later, Amanda would give birth, to a baby girl. Her name would be Ciarra. Amanda prayed to God and thanked him for giving her a healthy baby and she asked God, to give her the best Guardian Angel he had. We really don't know if grandma got her wings and if God would let her watch over Ciarra, but we do know that Ciarra is a child so full of life and so adventurous. My whole family and I believe that grandma's soul, now lives through Ciarra and that Ciarra has the best Guardian Angel, her great grandmother. This email address is being protected from spambots.
