Oh Lillian!!! I have been away for almost a month and just finally checked in and saw your news here and on the main I'm Pregnant board. I'm stunned and my heart goes out to you and your family. I don't have any personal religion in me either but I am sending all my strength to whatever little piece of the collective conscience that I have any influence over. I am so impressed by the calm and determination with which you and your daughter are handling this very difficult situation. She sounds like one amazing little girl!
I can't imagine the stress yet at the same time boredom you must be feeling from day to day. When you are ready for a new book, I recommend "The Signature of All Things" by Elizabeth Gilbert. I picked it up in an airport recently and am just finishing it. It's deeply researched (I always love that), riveting and very distracting!
Thank you for sharing your experience with us, you have the support of hundreds of friends here rooting for you and your daughter!
Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.
