 家家有本难念经 jiā jiā yǒu běn nán jīng
This Chinese phrase means every family has a difficult prayer. Yesterday, with my Campomelic group, I found that some mothers have lost two babies. And today, I found out a friend lost her baby and then lost her ability to have any more babies.
When I was mourning, a friend told me this song,
Count them one by one.
Count your blessings,

SickKids Hospital in Toronto


In four days, it would be Andrew's 27 anniversary. I refrain to talk too much about Andrew and his book. To some, you may think I write too much. For me, my journey is sharing my life to help many bereaved parents and also those with special needs parents. Here is a message which validates my writing.

Ann, my name is Lori and I believe I recently read your book (I am in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) when Dr. Andrew James shared it with me. I believe he took care of your son. Am I correct?
If I am, I was blown away by your book- beautifully written. I hope you don't mind that I have written to you. Lori (Grief Support Nurse at SickKids Hospital in Toronto)
