I'm not normally one to post links to stories, but this one really touched my heart. An amazing story of strength and will.

That really is the most amazing story. Amazing.

I let my husband read it and he said (funnily enough) "I bet THOSE parents never put that baby in a crib and made her cry to sleep! That child probably doesn't even have her own room (just like ours)!"

That is such a sweet story. Talk about mom's intuition.

What a beautiful story!:

You know when I started reading that and took a look at the first and then the second picture there music turned on in my head as clear as the radio and I heard How You Live by Point Of Grace
Gave a whole new meaning to that song and I bawled my eyes out!
OK so maybe it's part pg hormones but still...

I'm not a "forward-er"... but, I just sent that to three of the mamas I know. Wow. What a powerful example of what a mama's love and intuition can do!!

I started crying while reading that and my 16 month old crawled on my lap and hugged me.

Beautiful story! I love happy endings.
