I was concerned that I'd get pity, and I don't want that.
I want to stress that I believe that all of us parents would also do much as I have done - that parents, in general go the extra mile to love and protect their children.
I'm not that different from any of you, and I am not particularly gifted or special or loving as a mother (just ask my older girls, I'm sure they would regale you with my shortcomings!! lol).
I got supportive comments, and I really appreciate that...a lot. I am constantly pleased by the support bloggers give each other!
And I also got an email from M. Jay, who is a blogger in South Africa (or "Some Efica", as her son says it).
Please check out A Some South Efica Mommy - and not just because yesterday's post touched her.
