You mom's are so awesome, I don't know what I would do without all of your genuine comments. My family won't even call me or anything. I think they think I have fallen off the deep end. Today I called my hair dresser, yeah that's right, who knows you better than her. She has to listen to you, your paying her, she isn't going to tell you to shut up. Anyway I cried to her asking for prayers for my son. She was so compassionate, she prayed for both of us. Why doesn't your family understand like people you barely know do? I read all your stories and I realize I 'm not nuts, I am just like the rest of you. Loving caring mothers who are separated from their child and missing them. Thank you all for being there for all of us!
