Notable Replies

  1. Thank you Lynn & Cory. I was deeply touched and grateful for your interview. Both of you articulating with wisdom and compassion your often painful journey, while still being present to beauty and gratitude. Though I’ve not had the experience of a chronically ill child I could relate to the grief you both expressed you have had to endure. Strangely your interview has given a great sense of relief, like a breath I’ve been holding a long time and could finally release. I hug your humanity and mine. :slight_smile:
