Nope can't read it. But if this is the same story you posted on another blog with pictures, then I have read it.

Fern............ no this is a different story........ you must click on each photo to make it larger to read, hopefully you will be able to..... its not the same story :(

It is very difficult to read, but I managed to get most of it! I even clicked on the picture to enlarge it, but there was no magnifying glass to enlarge it further. Anyhow, thank you for sharing your story! It really touched my heart, and will definitely make me think twice before I "judge" somebody by sight alone!

I was able to zoom in and read it fine. Did you keep in touch with the other parents? Do you know anything about the child who survived?

Absolutely beautiful story Anjie! I so relate to this for two reasons. As you know, I lost 4 babies, but what you don't know is that I still participate in a support group for mothers who have lost babies. I stay even 7 years since my last loss, in hopes of offering my experience to others, because I know from experience I am offering them hope that life will go on. The pain never leaves, but we do learn to live with it and we learn other lessons through our journey. The second reason this resonates with me is because I look fine on the outside, but my body is not well. I think even my doctors question how well I look when I am telling them how bad the pain is. I too have learned from offering support to other people in pain or with chronic illnesses that you cannot judge someone from outward appearances, it just isn't fair. So thanks for sharing this story with us, it really is touching and life changing.

I was finally able to read this tonight....I am in tears just trying to imagine the private hell that you have endured during this time when Shane was ill, and many others in your life. What you wrote about people judging others by their outward appearance, is so true. It should not be that way, but, it is how people react to anyone that might be "different" from themselves. God love you, Anjie for reaching out to that mother in such a loving way....I'm sure that she has never forgotten that RAOK that you bestowed upon her....I'm always in utter amazement at the lengths you go to every single day to help anyone/everyone that needs any type of help or assistance. You are an angel, Anjie and I love you dearly. xoxoxox
