on friday night, chas was putting hero down to bed. from our bedroom, i heard him start singing to our little daughter. he sang "i am a child of god" but wasn't able to finish before he got choked up. he came into our room, climbed into bed with me, and we both started crying together. he told me how as he was singing to hero, he was thinking about how much he loved her and all those parents in connecticut who, earlier that same day, had lost their own little hero.
our hearts ache for those who are suffering so deeply at this time. i cannot even fathom the kind of pain they must be feeling.
we are so grateful for our baby. every day with her is a blessing.
