Just had to express myself on what people keep telling me all the time...I;ve heard it so much I wanna scream. I HATE it when people call me a hero for raising my grand daughter...I have had her since she was 10 days old and she just recently turned 2 years old. I am proud to be raising her. She is an absolute joy. I hate it when people say things like "I couldn't do that...give up my freedom"...my reply is...oh yes you would...they are your flesh and blood...nobody could ever give up on having a child raised by strangers or in the foster care system. We are stronger than we think. We were not expecting this to happen...but it did and we didn't give it a second thought. Yes it's hard...we're 44 and 45 years old starting all over again....but through all this one great thing has come of it....not only is this child bringing up lots of joy and love....but it is because of her my survivor's guilt with Cancer has vanished....she is the reason why I needed to be here...I truly believe God had a hand in me surviving Cancer twice....she is my reason.
