Back in December, Sarah Hankins made headlines when her BFF agreed to adopt her 4 kids if she died from fighting ALS. According to her online obituary, Sara Hankins died on Monday at the age of 36. Her children and family by her side at the time of her death. She leaves behind, Alexis, 18, Cayden, 11, Micah, 9, and Amara, 8. 

This story hit home and made my heart hurt, but also smile. Friends can become family, and the right thing to do is to put family first! I wish Hankins family peace as well as Missy Armstrong, her bff, who will now continue raising Hankins 4 children.
