Ciara couldn’t hide her emotions during a visit to the Seattle Children’s Hospital.
The pregnant singer joined hubby and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson for his weekly visit to hospital where there were met with a young patient, Wesley, who is 20 months old and is said to be nearing the end of his life.
Upon meeting Wesley, Ciara breaks down at his bedside and has to walk away to regain composure before addressing the camera and asking for prayers and a miracle.
“Wesley is 2 years old and he is at the end of his life, in the blind cycle, so pretty sad. Pretty tough for me being a mom, because I didn’t even know what to expect when I walked in there and angel baby,” she began to say while visibly emotional.
“What’s really cool is that he was kind of like doing more than I guess that he had been doing and he just opened his eyes and they were saying he hadn’t opened his eyes for a while so that’s pretty sweet. We both said prayer, I said a prayer for him and we did handprints and stuff that was really sweet. So really, really tough time, very special time,” Ciara continued.
“Go Wesley. Let’s all say prayers for Wesley because miracles are real and they do actually happen and prayers do change and do make a different and everybody lets pray together for Wesley.”
Wilson posted a photo of the couple with her handprint artwork next to Wesley’s bed and wrote, “Wesley is an inspiration to @Ciara & I! We even got to do arts & crafts with him @SeattleChildrens .. my hand was just a tad bit bigger! Please pray for Wesley as they say he doesn’t have much longer to live but we are praying for a miracle!”
Prior to their visit with Wesley, Wilson answered a fan question on Facebook about his Thanksgiving plans.
“We have a game on Sunday so we got practice all day, practice until 2 or 3 o’clock then go home and eat tons of turkey, smoked turkey, can’t wait,” he said. “That’s exciting, and make some food and have some great dinner that will be cool.”
