Jayci Yaeger Sees Her Father

 Edit: Friday Morning Jayci has died.

With great compassion, several of you commented on Jayci’s story I wrote about a few days ago. She is the little girl, dying with cancer, who desperately wanted to see her daddy. But he was in prison, and the ruling had been handed down that he could not visit the child.

But yesterday, only for a few minutes, Jayci–seemingly against all odds–had a visit from her daddy.

Her father, Jason Yaeger, who has been locked up in a South Dakota federal prison on methamphetamine charges, was allowed to see his daughter for what may be the last time.

Jayci, who cannot speak, move or eat, could sense that her father was next to her and feel his touch, because she began breathing more heavily during his visit, the family told FOX News.

Such sorrow and yearning, I can hardly imagine.
