"Our baby boy grew his wings tonight ..."
A lawyer for Alfie Evans' mother Kate James told three Court of Appeal judges that James hoped the courts would "invite the hospital to take the appropriate steps".
The Vatican-owned Bambino Gesu hospital in Rome offered to care for Alfie, although doctors who examined him said not much could be done but to make him comfortable.
He said: "The cases of Charlie Gard, Ashya King and now Alfie Evans show a risky trend of public bodies depriving parents and families of the right to make decisions they believe are in the best interests of their children".
On April 23, he tweeted, "Moved by the prayers and enormous solidarity shown little Alfie Evans, I renew my appeal that the suffering of his parents may be heard and that their desire to seek new forms of treatment may be granted".
Alfie Evans' father Tom Evans called for supporters of Alfie and his family to "stand down" so they can begin "building a bridge" with Alder Hey Children's Hospital and its staff.
This month, another case has gripped the headlines in Britain: that of Alfie Evans, a toddler at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in the northern city of Liverpool. She says what happened to Alfie and his parents needs to never happen to get to any other child or patient.
The other day, Alfie's parents changed course and made a decision to end their battle.
Alfie's case has drawn worldwide attention, with officials in largely Catholic Poland and Italy implicitly criticizing Britain's courts and state-run National Health Service. On April 23, the Italian government granted citizenship to the boy so he could be evacuated by a waiting air ambulance.
Pope Francis has met Alfie's father and made appeals for the boy's parents' wishes to be heeded, saying only God can decide who dies.
Writing in the post's caption, she added: "We love you Alfie we do, we love you Alfie we do, we love you Alfie we dooo, oh Alfie we love you".
James also wrote a post in a Facebook group, Alfie's Army Official, a page dedicated to Alfie's case.
Rallies in support of Alfie's parents have been held throughout the week in London, Washington, D.C., NY and the Vatican, with pilgrims gathering to pray the rosary in St. Peter's Square each night leading up to the toddler's death. Alfie had even gathered supporters in the United States, including many prominent conservatives. Charlie's parents ultimately gave up their fight to take the baby to the USA for experimental therapy to prolong his life, saying there wasn't a realistic chance of saving him.
