The rain in Nelson (and all over the world)is not falling from the sky, but from the eyes of all that have been touched by Anaya.
I send my prayers and loving thoughts with you. I cant even begin to imagine your pain and struggle. May god grant you the strength to get through this sad timeLove Ashley Mullen and Emmy Moore
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful photos and your journey. Your beautiful angel has touched so many hearts accross the world. You are an amazing family who will be in my thoughts forever. Stay strong and continue to make a difference!
Oh blessed, blessed angel.
This little girl and her story have touched my heart in such a special way. I read, and look through your photos with both a heavy heart and such hope and happiness. I will hug my two little boys a little tighter tonight and hope it makes its way to Anaya. Your bravery and love for your daughter is amazing. Bless you all.
♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥i was going to go see you today but i think you need to be with your family at this time but thinking and praying for a miricle........♥♥♥♥.
Sending you love at this difficult time. Knowing that your golden angel will soon be free from her pain, will keep you strong. God has shared her with you for what seems like a short time, but feel comfort in knowing that you will see her again one day in the beautiful place she has been dancing, singing , listening and watching all of the beauty around her! You and your family will forever be in my heart and thoughts!
Know that Gods arms are welcoming her home, where He promises there will be no suffering. My heart is breaking for you though. My prayers are with you. May you be reunited again one day in Heaven.
Your family has been in my thoughts and prayers all day long. Anaya has touched so many in her short life. She has helped to inspire and remind me that every single day with my kids is a gift. One I need to stop wasting on being annoyed or frustrated with the little things they do that really do not matter and just love. Thank you for that Anaya. I promise you I will not waste our time together!
Our thoughts are with you, you are loved by so many. Peace to your whole family.
There is so much love on your Face Book Page. I have a huge lump in my throat and tears swelling in my eyes. I send love and all the positive energy I can and hope you have comfort today and everyday.
I try not to cry but am balling my eyes out. Everyone has said a million time that they cannot imaging what you are going through and it is true. I just don't know what to say as I scroll through these photos. I am happy that you are together now and pray a miracle will come! I am stuggling to find the words but just want you to know that sooo many people are with you right now... Every ounce of strength, love, peace is coming your way. (((((HUGS TO ALL OF YOU)))))
Thank you god for Brent and camara, whose love prevailed brought together by their miracle baby Anaya. There are now words of regret or why....we have all been blessed and in that we rejoice and celebrate her home going to you.
Miracles happen everyday...but in some cases, not in they way we're praying for. Today, Anaya will experience a miracle...she will be pain free, she will have her sight back, she will be able to run, laugh and play. She will be in a marvelous place for eternity...waiting for the rest of her family and loved ones to join her one day. To me, the miracle here is that we have such a place to go to, and Anaya gets to go there and experience it today. Her spirit will be watching over her family...as they are bonded together, forever...she will become their Guardian Angel. I just wish her parents and family could see what she'll be seeing and how wonderful it truly is.
I am sending so much love your way. Anaya is such a precious, adored little girl and she has touched the lives of so many. My heart is with you and your family today and always.
breathtaking angel taking breaths. o lord send this angel and her family peace. let them feel enveloped in love as we envelop them in our hearts and thoughts. amen.
I may not have had the delightful pleasure to meet you all but Anaya and your whole family have touched my heart deeply. I love Anaya just as much i love my own son. You are all blessed to have such a wonderful angel in your life.
There are thousands of people who love and support all of you through this difficult journey, we are here at your side going through it with you. The Anaya Initiative is flooding with thoughts, love and prayers for your whole family. May God watch over all of you, give you strength and bless Anaya.
Anaya your life has been a blessing♥ When you get your wings and go back to God I hope you will meet my kids that are already there. Anaya Say Hi to my son Ethan, and my twin girls Eden & Olivia they will be great friends to you♥Praying for your comfort & peace at this time♥

Thank you for changing my life and showing me what true unconditional love looks like. <3

its sad to loose a loved one. i know how hard it is. i lost my baby brother because he had mitocondreo disorder. he died when he turned 2 but about amonth and a day later. :( i send my sympathy and love! -arianna wesdorp age 11
I have been following you guys for a while now and as much as I've felt for you, this photos have pushed past all that. You, Camara are an AMAZINGLY strong woman, and you can see every ounce of that in your daughter. You didn't fail, not even in the slightest. She is SO loved that thousands of people are with you and your family now and forever. Anaya has touched so many people and will continue to do so for years to come. Sending all my love you guys as you struggle through this.
I just heard your story about 10 minutes ago. My friend's daughter was diagnosed with leukodystrophy a few months ago (not sure which one). It is a heartbreaking diagnosis. I don't know you or your family but these pictures have me crying uncontrollably. Here I am sitting in my car with my one year old baby boy sleeping in the back. I can't imagine being where you are and my heart is breaking for you. Those pictures and your strength amaze me. God chose your for that baby girl because He knew you would have the strength to do what she needs when the time came. She may be your miracle, but you are hers. Don't forget that. Sending love and prayers from Pittsburgh.
I'm in tears for you guys! my heart is truly breaking! I can't imagine ever having to say good bye to one of my kids! I can't imagine for a second the pain you must be feeling, love and prayers
I don't know you, just found out about your page, but I am hurting for your family. Know that you have love and prayers being sent all around the world tonight! I am in Ukraine tonight praying for YOU!
My heart and tears are with you
sending my love and prayers. God will continue to use your story to inspire others and give strength. God bless you and your family <3

I found this blog through a friend on Facebook. Your story has touched my heart and I just want you to know that people you don't even know are affected by your story. Sending love and prayers for peace and comfort your way.
My love and prayers are sent and I know that the blessing of her short life here on earth will continue to grow. I know that families are forever and that you will have your sweet baby girl again. She was sent to you for a purpose and I pray you have strength and peace at this time and always. She will always be near. What a beautiful, blessed little girl sweet Anaya.
My thoughts and prayers are will all of you. Bless you all.

I am so sorry for the grief and pain that I soknow u r feeling. Hugehugs. Sonya
Ps.....ur angel looks absolutely beautiful.
Wonderful photos she looks so peaceful with all her loving family around.
Anaya is so breathtakingly brave and beautiful. I am sending my love and thoughts to you all.
These pictures were definitely the most heartbreaking pics I've seen in 31 yrs. I'm so sorry. :(
I just don't know what to say! My heart BREAKS for you, I look at these pictures and though my heart breaks, I am comforted by the fact that she died with love like she was born! She looks SO at peace, and all of your being there and keeping her warm and talking too her, proves how loved she is! I HOPE you felt the love from the posts, it was and is palpable! I don't know how you put each thought down, each picture, but it was my HONOR to be there with you in spirit! I truly am heart broken for you, but I know her light will ALWAYS be with all of you! <3 Dawn
Love to you all. Such inspiration, such beauty... thank you for all the love your family has given. Your little baby girls has created cracks in many hearts and this allows the light to shine in. <3
OMG.......she is a beautiful angel....may you find comfort and strength through each other to get through this extremely difficult time.....I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through...We are supposed to go before our children...with the lack of words to say is I send you all my love and prayers

Both of your daughters are BEAUTIFUL!!!Your photos really capture Anaya's beautiful, angelic face. I am so sorry for your loss.The love, faith, and strength of your family are an inspiration!!
Prayers for your family....God Bless u all with the strength to get through this hard time and remember to stay strong and remember u have an Angel...God Bless
Words cannot describe what I want to say to you right now. Your family is inspirational and have changed so many peoples lives. Anaya has taught people how to love again I truly believe. Compassion is something we see less and less in the world but there is no lack of it in the thousands of ppls lives you have touched.I just want to say thank you for sharing your journey thus far with us. I know this is just the beginning, Anayla was brought on earth to help teach others and she will be doing that for a very long time.Your an amazing romodel for any mom and wife. I'm sending love and prayers from my family to yours. Thinking about you all...
At a loss for words. The pain I feel right now is unbearable - can't begin to imagine how awful it is for you. I would like to say that the photo of both of you is very touching. Having recently experienced marital problems, I'd like to pass along my advice that it's very important that you two don't lose sight of eachother during all of this. Take turns being eachother's "rock" and respect one another's grieving process. It's gonna be a long bumpy road.
What a BEAUTIFUL short life Anaya fully lived. You guys gave her a great life and she gave thousands of others so many lessons in such a short time.Denise
This is so beautiful. The pain, uplifted by the sweetness and love of a devoted, loving family. I am definitely sending my love, and lot's of it.
Tonnes of love and hugs to you, Anaya's daddy and your two gorgeous and brave daughters from someone you've never met, but whom you've touched deeply
So beautiful. <3Much love to you all.
prayers, prayers, prayers for all of you during this time. my heart aches for you all.
For what it's worth, my heart and my mind are with you all. Just hold her tight and send her off full of your love to meet the angels. I am so sorry.
Camara, Brent, Solora - thank you for sharing her journey with us. She has touched over 7000 people's lives without saying a word. Its amazing what we learn everyday from just a look or a touch. Rainbows have a whole new meaning for me and living in the now. Sometimes the chores and routine of daily life blind us to some beautiful moments of just breathing, watching a leaf fall, brushing one of my daughter's hair, smiling at my son while he hugs his girlfriend... watching my husband relax on the couch. I was so touched when I first read about Anaya and then you guys getting stuck here in Salem - I got that whisper in my ear "Here... here is something you can help with... here maybe you can make a difference." I wasnt able to make a difference in getting Anaya to the sun but I feel I made a difference just bringing more people to her story. People who are just as changed as I am from knowing her journey. Thank you for that... for changing me. ~~Theresa Whisenhunt
god bless u baby girl....fly with the angels in a perfect kld FREE body now
God bless your family! You have personified the true meaning of being a mother and caretaker & your family has provided such LOVE for that little angel during her short time here on earth! While pregnant with my twins, there was an anomoly in my daughter's kidney that was a usually interpreted as a marker for birth defects like spina bifida or down's syndrome so it was suggested that I have a "selective reduction" which was actually a nice word for "abortion". But the way I saw it, she was God's child, not mine. If it was His will for her to be born, however flawed she was by man's standards, so be it. I was her mother and she was my daughter and that was all the justification I needed in order to ignore their suggestion and continue with the pregnancy. From that knowledge to the occurence of them being born 10 wks early (weighing 2 lbs, 9 oz and 3 lbs, 7 oz) and having to stay in the NICU for the first 7 weeks of their lives, I had to give them both to God to do what He willed. It was so painful and I didn't think my heart could ache so much to watch all the necessary tubes and needles go everywhere, causing them obvious agony and leaving bruises on their thin, jaundiced skin. I am so in awe of your entire family's faith and dedication to bring Anaya the best standard of living possible as well as ensuring she have the opportunity to enjoy the many fulfilling experiences you have provided. Again, blessings and love to your family from mine in California.
Blessed be, sweet baby.
so beautiful. I'll be thinking of you everyday. x
Breaks my heart your lost and.from my heart I send you all my love and strength and may the Lord give you and your family strength and as a mother all my love and im 100% certain she is in. heaven right now and happier then ever waiting for her family.... May the Lord bless you all
Those lips and those cheeks are just so kissable and sweet! Words can't express how sorry we are and we hope that God's love will follow you through this journey. Much love from our family to yours.
Sending all my love and prayers as you go through this very difficult time! Anaya is a special beautiful angel now! God made it extra special for her arrival and she is smiling and dancing and looking at all the wonderful things in her special new home and smiling down on her mama papa and big sister and feeling very blessed and thankful that she had the best earth family ever! xxx
These are so beautiful. Beautiful pictures of a beautiful family. She will always be in your thoughts and memories watching down on you. Here is a beautiful song to play to help think of how free she is now. http://youtu.be/QICc9bCRbTM Blessings,Gina Marie
What a beautiful family. This brought a tear to my eye.
My heart aches for you. Just found out about Anaya and her initiative. May God's love surround you today and always.
I just want to let you know that my heart goes out to you. Anaya is so lucky to have such an unselfish and loving family. I take solace in the fact that your beautiful daughter is once again seeing, running and smiling. She is so lucky to have been held tenderly in your arms as she passed. We can all only hope for such a beautiful transition. Stay strong. We need more people like you in this world. Much love, Rebecca
I just found this blog. The pictures. Oh... my heart. It is literally in a million pieces, and all I have done is read. I am so very sorry you are going thru this. The honesty and raw truth that you share, will help others. I know that in the place you are, there is no one other then Anaya that matters... but she will reach so much further then her years on this earth. SHE IS BEAUTIFUL. Even as sick as she is, she drew me to tears instantly. It had nothing to do with her illness, rather her beauty. Im so very sorry. Im so glad you got to love this special little girl. I am so thankful you shared her with the world. 5 minutes. I have only known she exists for 5 minutes and I am not only smitten... but also changed. She made a difference to me. Your baby matters. She matters to absolute strangers. So many prayers for your family, for Anaya. If ever there was a time for a miracle...
I've only just now stumbled upon your blog, and I am crying. I am so sorry about your little girl!
All my love and hope!
Camara, my tears are overflowing . life and death, joy and sorrow, all are part of our experience on this earth. reminds me "the more that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain" Kahlil Gibran. all my love and prayers at this most difficult time. thank you for all the lessons you have taught me about love.
You have my deepest condolences. So sorry for your loss. I hope you can find some peace in the fact that she is in a better place now. May she rest in peace.Love, Hege
Your story is heartbreaking, I am weeping with pain and sadness for you. Your baby girl is a precious angel who is at peace now. I'm so sorry. I'm praying for you and her and your family.
