I remember being so scared. My hands shaking and my stomach leaping, prayers being silently prayed.The Dr had rushed in and said we need this baby to come out now,your heart rate was dropping.Your daddy holding my hand whispering it was going to be all okay.His joking around to try and calm my fears.Inside I know he was just as many, Dr’s and nurses crowded around […]

Until one day maybe someone pours gasolineall over that wood.Then you watch as they throw the match.And you burn,while […]
