Never Ever Lose Hope.

Updated on October 9, 2012

Last night at around 7pm pink balloons were let loose from well wishers worldwide for little April and her family.

This was a wish from April's heartbroken family and I do not have the words to explain what I think they must be going through.

April's family wanted pink balloons because Tangled was April's favourite DVD and they were let loose by a world full of people who have taken this dear family into their hearts.

Let us never forget to keep those prayers going today and tomorrow .xxxxx



A message on facebook from a well wisher reads: " On seeing the balloons for April reminded me of this scene from Tangled, a story about a young girl who was also taken away from her family as a child. This Princess ran away, followed the lanterns, and returned home. I hope your princess does too♥ xxx"

Even Blackpool Tower was lit up for April and her family.

Our sweet little princess

Forever in our prayer.

We'll never stop hoping

Our compassion we share.

x

Your sweet sweet smile

Etched deep in each mind

We wish your family

That solace they'll find.

x

For each new dawn

Today and tomorrow.

May we send blessings

To blend with that sorrow.

x

My heart cries out

For your Mum and Dad.

You are the sweetest gem

They could ever have had.

x

May your smile shine through

And make each heart sing.

Through each sad day

A strength you will bring.

      My prayers for this little girl. They finally found a missing little girl here a few days ago. The family put up purple balloons for her.

      I hope this little girl is found safe for her family. I hope they catch the person who did this to both little girls.

      Eddy, So much beauty and love are encircling this planet, all in the name of little April and her loved ones! If anything can bring April back, love will.

      Can you imagine how amazing it would be to see those lanterns and those pink balloons and all the handheld candles and Blackpool Tower's lights from the perspective of being in the heavens, looking downward to Earth? So inspiring!

      This may sound naive, but it astounded me to learn of April's disappearance happening in Wales, which I think of as such a beautiful and peaceful country. But the vastness of the loving responses and of willingness to help look for her from complete strangers tells me that there is infinitely more love in Wales than hatred. And the "April effect" also confirms that there is also infinitely more love in the entire world than hatred.

      Little April has captured hearts worldwide.

      Thank you for such a beautiful, inspiring poem.

      Appreciatively, Stessily

      Eddy...i signed a fb petition to help find this beautiful child! This is happening FAR too often - i don't understand how our children became the target for the rage, vengeance, discontent, and entitlement that is overtaking the world !

      Oh Eddy, a beautiful tribute to this little angel - I'm in tears at your wonderful words!

      I'm like you, in that I can't imagine the pain that her family are going through and will carry for the rest of their lives. Everyday I kept thinking to myself I hope this story will be different and that things will work out and April will go home - well, this little one has gone home, not unfortunately to the physical place and family, but somewhere no one can harm her again.

      My heart and blessings go to April and her family and to all the people in her area who worked so hard to try and find this little angel. And Eddy, to you, for writing such a beautiful tribute - you are a sensitive and awesome poet!

      Voted up + shared!
