Empathy...
If there is one thing I have gained in losing my Eli, that is it. When I read the story of another baby diagnosed or taken by SMA, I cry like I have lost another child. Why? I think it is because I know how those families are going to be feeling. I know what it is like to have a silent house. I know how it feels to have a beautiful nursery, so lovingly decorated, sit empty. I would gladly add to my own pain to stop anyone else from EVER having to experience it. I am already broken so more pain....well, it can't really do much more to me right now. I'd gladly bear it.

Hello Rita,

It's strange sometimes how one seems to be drawn to another and how connections are made..my best friend is Kristen Lucas..you have been in touch with her via her beautiful sweetheart Georgia. Thank-you for your connection and for all that you offer others. Let us offer you a sense of support in reaching out, spreading the word of SMA and offering comfort in words and pictures.

Please feel the hug and comfort that I am offering you at this time.
