“I still have the baby blanket that all four girls used. As my oldest turns 18 tomorrow the sweet baby scent has long since left. I wash it from time to time to keep it from smelling stale... and like a fool I will hold it close after I wash it and inhale deeply to see if maybe, just maybe that sweet infant scent will be there...
Eventually I know that blanket will be stale no more. Until that day I will do whatever I can to cry less and smile more… We'll be here holding one another up until our prayers have been answered.”
Yes we certainly will, Emilia.
