Meeting For The First Time

One of Bear's wishes came true today. He finally got to meet his youngest nephew, who is 2.5 yrs old. Circumstances, distance and most likely, my own grief and their worry of my reaction to a child who is supposed to be close in age to my daughter are the reasons we have not met this child yet.

But I am glad we finally got to meet him. Why did it have to be under these circumstances? I don't know and I won't dwell on it.

I just hope they know that I love their kids like I do my own daughter, and that they shouldn't be strangers.

I'm reading these entries and can hardly focus through the tears--I'm so sorry! I wish there were something I could do--all of the feelings you describe sound like what I'd be feeling too, angry and scared.

You don't know me. I actually found you through a google search for a night lite. I just wanted to let you know I'm very sorry you and your husband are having to go through all this. I can't imagine what it would be like.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so glad that Bear is having his family (in-laws included) come to visit and support him. How nice that he was finally able to meet his nephew. :) I'm sorry he was in such pain before and after...
