Kristen & Craig,
I have kept up with your blog since last year and even though I have never met you or Jordan, I love her as if I known her all along. I cannot even count how many times I have prayed for her and for you both and will continue to pray. In the little time she was here on earth she lit up the lives of so many people. Not only the ones she was around but people cities, towns, and states away. What an amazing little girl who now is lighting up the heavens with her smile. I pray for your strength and for your pain to be lifted in this horrible time. With much love,

Kristen & Craig,

I have been praying for you for a while, may you find comfort in your faith and your memories of sweet Jordan. What a beautiful blessing she must be to y'all. I can not fathom what you must feel, joy for her ultimate healing, sadness for your longing.

I am not sure if you have heard of Natalie Grant, but this song is so beautiful and I hope that it can help you fell as you are being "held" during this difficult time.

(PS) I work for SF with Janet..

Two months is too little
They let him go
They had no sudden healing
To think that providence
Would take a child from his mother
While she prays, is appalling
Who told us we'd be rescued
What has changed and
Why should we be saved from nightmares
Were asking why this happens to us
Who have died to live, it's unfair
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We'd be held
This hand is bitterness
We want to taste it and
Let the hatred numb our sorrows
The wise hand opens slowly
To lilies of the valley and tomorrow
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We'd be held
If hope if born of suffering
If this is only the beginning
Can we not wait, for one hour
Watching for our savior
This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was that when everything fell
We'd be held

Dear Kristen & Craig,
You are in my prayers. I was the person at Novartis that just held the cupcakes for a cause.
For whatever reason I have delayed sending in the money to CancerCare for Kids. Well now I know.. I am sending all the monies which is over $3700. in Memory of your sweet Jordan, in hopes that others may live.
God Bless you both.
With tears,
Linda Copeland
Did you know that Jordon was born on St. Nicholas day? HE is the patron saint of children. I know she is sitting on his lap right now.

No words will heal your hearts but please try to find comfort in the tears from strangers that fall because of your loss.

I have been praying for Jordan & your family for many months. My heart broke with the news that she is gone. May the courage that she showed in her life give you peace in this sad time.

Dear Plauschinat Family

I stumbled across your profoundly sad but inspirational blog after hearing that a close friend's almost 3 year old has just been diagnosed with cancer - probably neuroblastoma. My heart goes out to you and to them, and I truly hope you can find strength knowing that while precious Jordan was in your lives for just a short time, your lives are forever enriched. With love from TT in Melbourne, Australia.

I just clicked on your blog after your thoughtful comment on mine. I just wanted to say, well, I don't even know what to say. There are no words. I'm so sorry. Sending huge hugs.
