Thank you for sharing this. What a great way to gain perspective. I truly feel for her. And she is such a great writer. I am sure this experience is bringing out something extra in her talent for sure.
What a hard trial to go through-I really can't imagine that pain. My heart breaks for parents who are losing/have lost a child (my older sister, Michele, died when I was 9 mos old-so this has been a part of my life-seeing how intensely it affects parents and a family). It makes me just so incredibly grateful for my healthy, happy, feisty little girl and all the joy she brings.
