There are alot of kids here at the clinic this year. I feel a painful kinship with all of their parents - these are people from all over the world who are just hoping to find something that will make a difference in their children's lives. I see the struggle, the sadness in their faces, and I wonder if my face looks the same. I think it usually doesn't, but it probably does sometimes. I see their pain, and I want to make it better. I want to make their children better, I want to take away the pain. Of course, I can't even take away my own pain, I can only work to focus on the good. For some of the parents, those with the most disabled kids, I can see that they would be so happy to have even the progress we have had with Cash. It reminds me that sometimes I am envious of people with "smaller" disabilities than our own. But today I am grateful for all that Cash is and all he can do.
