    This is actually my cousins daughter. But we have grown up as cousins. Her son came to them after they were married...a social worker showed up and told her hubby he had a son. They of course took him but he was very very broken.

    She is a blogger and becoming pretty successful. I hope this inspires you. I bawled, because I know them and love them, and also there have been a couple of times Q has done a small thing like that...and it makes a big difference.

    Here you go...

    this post is from a when she was a recent guest on kircorner at : http://www.thekircorner.com/2011/11/proud-mommy-momentsjayme-from-random.html

    he has her own blog and is usually known for her humor, but this was heartfelt. Jake is still really tricky and they have some battles as we all know from our own homes. But I am so proud of her. and Jake is a great kid! Q loved him and they shared a room when we were there, first time he ever had a sleep over. (I was in the next room supervising, tee hee)

    The links to her blogs are at the site this is from she is the "random blogette" but that is not the point of this, just wanted to share an experience I know many of us can understand.

    WOW! That is powerful. When we've been in a similar situation, difficult child 1 just stares at me like he can't quite figure out what to do. difficult child 2 holds on to me. He's my emotionally sentimental one.

    What a sweet story, how great that her difficult child was able to show such compassion at such a time.

    That is so sweet. Death is so hard for all of us and it hits many of the grandchildren very hard too. I was very comforted to have my kids with me when my dad died.
