Wow, Elisabeth. I'm sorry...I had no idea.

I've seen this going around on Facebook and didn't do it because I didn't want to make people uncomfortable talking about my first born....

But reading yours from this perspective (a side that I rarely get to see)...it's not uncomfortable at all...a beautiful tribute. I may have to do one, after all.
