Who, what, where, when and

Why. It's the one that's always the hardest to answer. Always the toughest to understand. The one that takes the most thought and careful consideration. A question that rarely has an answer. So, I ask you, why ask why? Throughout my life there have been many occasions in which I asked this question. And the majority of them remain unanswered. Unfortunately, trials are a part of every day life. They come at you when you least expect it and throw you into a tail spin of doubt and despair. If you're lucky you come out on top, changed, but stronger. A few years ago I delivered a sweet baby that we named Noah. He was one of the biggest Why's I have asked in my lifetime. Today, I have a very dear friend struggling with the same reality. It breaks my heart to see her go through what I had to go through. I want to tell her that everything will work out and that good will come from it, but I was told the same thing and it didn't help. I wish I could remove this burden from her and bear it myself, knowing that I survived the first time and could do it again, but it isn't up to me. I can only hope that she will get an answer when she asks the question - why?, and that it will bring her peace.

Well Josie, you know how sorry I am for her. It's amazing that even after all these years (6 now) I look at other kids that are his age and wonder what kind of a kid he would have been. I guess the one thing that helps me so much is knowing...he's so good he didn't need to prove himself. Hopefully we'll be able to prove worthy enough to raise the little guys...eventually!
