  2. Dear Maya,

    There is absolutely NOTHING greater than a mother’s love for her baby! Ronan was so brave and strong because he had his momma’s love!

    You and Ronan are already changing the world through the lives of all the people who’ve come to love your family.

    I want to thank you for sharing your journey with us! I know Ronan’s purpose is only just beginning! Your love is making a difference!

  3. maya, music got me through my childhood which was built upon a lot of pain. when i would listen really listen, it made me feel like i wasn’t alone. i think it is so awesome that you too are breathing through music. my heart is with you and your family.

  4. Hello Maya,
    I have written to you a few times. Just wanted to say thank you again for your posts. It truly helps me see what matters in life. Makes all the other crap so not important. Just wanted to share a song with you I heard on my Pandora today that made me think of you and Ronan. You may have already heard it its called Come Home by Onerepublic. I am so sorry you are in so much pain. Its the worst kind. I hope with time you will smile when you think of Ronan and it will be a real smile from your soul. I know right now you feel empty and not even like a person. I have that feeling too. Anyway, you are such an amazing woman. I hope someday you see that.
    Thanks,
    Angel

  5. This is one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs, it always makes me cry (several PJ songs do!). It is a beautiful song… for a beautiful boy!!
    I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: thank you so much for sharing Ronan and your story!! Sweet dreams!!

  6. Dear Maya,

    I do not know you.
    I am just one of many complete strangers who have connected to you and your precious Ronan.

    I found your blog via the layla grace page last fall. I have been following along since. I have not found the strength, or feel I can say anything to you that represents a fraction of what I feel for you and your family.

    But, today, I decided to share.

    This may sound so incredibly twisted and “psycho”, lol, but, I feel such love for you. I wish I could reach out to you and hug you, talk to you, and let you know just how much your pain has helped us and I know many, many more people to just stop and really treasure how precious life is and what miracles our children are.

    I have shared this life journey that you are on right now with my husband and we talk about you daily. Cry with you daily. And pray for you daily.

    Your posts rock me to my core. Your honesty. Your music. Your vulnerability.

    I am so happy you have not “edited” your “F” bombs b/c some may be offended. FUCK them as they have no idea how you feel or what you are going through. I have NO clue how you are dealing with this.
    I say “FUCK the world” for you a ba-zillion times a day.

    Maya, I live in BC, very close to the San Juan Islands, and I promise you, I will honour Ronan the next time I am there. It is such a beautiful place, just like Ronan.

    I know I am rambling………I have so much I would like to say to you…….most of all, I love you. From one Mom to another, stranger to stranger……love XO

    Leona~
