    That was great! Brought tears to my eyes, but what a great message it sends! I may have to share this with my family and friends. :)

    Wow. I haven’t seen that video. I’m bawling!
    Great message in the video AND in your post.
    I have first hand seen ‘parents’ give up. When you see it on a regular basis, you begin to wonder a million thoughts. But all you can do is re-focus on your own family. And you realize you can’t give up. Because it’s utterly impossible.
    Half the time I’m the son in the video, and the rest of the time Im the dad. A nice balance I think. :)

    I got chills while watching this….and just in case you need a reminder, you are strong and wise…I know it, and so do your children. Infact, do you feel like coming to be mom to Principessa? :) xo

    I’m a sucker for stories like this. Derek is a wonderful example of how to react to adversity. He didn’t give up even though he would have been justified. no one would have crticized him if he left on the stretcher, but he chose to finish what he started even with an injury. he refused to play the victim. I am inspired!
