What are you going to do when their Mimi, that they begged God to heal, dies anyway?

Sweetie, the pain of childbirth is just a paper cut and a warm-up for the thousands of ways those precious angels hurt your heart. And I'm not even to the teenage years.

What has this nation come to? All I can say is heaven help the babies they are raising!

First of all, you've "been there and done" things most of us cannot fathom, dear friend.

I will try to find your blog again--or maybe Sarah can resend the sight. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see you. My e-mail at school is Write to me there and we can figure something out.
