Odds

I was turned down to be in a study on post-partum depression, because one of the things it was studying was the development of the babies involved. Because they wouldn't be able to tell if her developmental delays were because of my depression, or because of her disability. Because this child is just getting a double whammy-- a body that won't work right and a mom who can't be normal. I think that's all I can say for now.

Oh, Carrie. (hug)

She's also getting a mama who loves her so much...I know it's hard to see the worth of that but it does mean everything to her.

Man, girl, that stinks. I wonder why? (((Hugs))) You love your baby girl more than life - that is what counts, really. Really.
