A local talk radio station took a poll.
This was the question:
Which group would you be most likely to do volunteer work for?
people living in poverty
Care to guess which group came in with the most votes?
It wasn't sick children.
It was animals.
The talk show host asked one of the voters why she picked animals.
"People and kids can take care of themselves."
For obvious reasons her response made me a bit sad.
I thought of all of the volunteers who have spent hours holding my baby when I can't.
And I'm grateful that they picked sick kids.
We have been inundated with love...
visits from friends
cookies in the mail
treats left in Emily's room
smiles from our favorite cleaning lady
our favorite nurse spoiling our baby girl
We have no idea how long we'll be here but we are being well taken care of.
Oh...just one more question:
Are there support groups for binky addictions? I've got a feeling we are going to need one. Or ten.
