Welcome to Our Blog

Welcome to our blog.  We are Brandi and Chris, and we have begun writing this to document and share our story of love and determination for our daughter, Scarlett Grace. We have called her Butterfly from her first day, so this blog is named for her.

Scarlett was born on October 16, 2010.  On December 17, 2010, we discovered she has a massive brain tumor.

This is a record of our experience as it happens.  No guarantees about regularity or frequency of posts, but we want to share with others how amazing our daughter's life has been so far, and how we are going to fight for the best possible life for her from now on.

Praymg for Scarletts strength, and comfort.. also, praying specifically for the skill of those medical professionals working with her, from the doctors to the nurse as she places an IV line.

Amazing how far the love for a child can take us and how far we are willing to fight for them. Your butterfly is only a day younger than my son so your story has really touched me in many ways. Your courage and determination is incredible and I know in my heart that your baby girl is a fighter and that she will over come this. I don't know why these horrible things happen but I know they happen in order to bring faith and humanity out in people. You are all in my thoughts and prayers and thank you for sharing with us all your fight to give Scarlett a chance to live!! God Bless

I just want to tell you that I read about your situation on Baby Center shortly after you found out about the tumor and I've been praying for your family. It's been a while since I've been on Baby Center and I finally got back on and saw your story again. So I came here and I have read this whole blog and I am praying so hard for little Scarlett. Scarlett is such an amazing little girl and are amazing parents. Love and prayers sent your way.
