    Dear St. Therese, please help my daughter through her grief at the loss of her little 20 month old daughter Lily. she is so heartbroken and misses her more every day. She keeps saying she wants her to come back. She is due to have a baby in January, and I pray that she will have a safe delivery. I love my daughter so much and seeing her suffer like this is just breaking my heart. Please shower your blessings down on her and help her to know in her heart how truly happy Lily is in Paradise.
