But you are so strong, to be able to turn a catastrophic loss into a way to inspire others! Kudos to you, Lisa! And many hugs, love, strengthen and peace on those really tough days. XOXO

    • I think if I had one of those Aladdin wishes it would be that not one more mom be a part of this club. Your friend is fortunate to have you next to her ❤

  2. Lisa,
    You continue to do the most amazing things. Putting your story out there in such a beautiful and heartfelt way is a huge accomplishment in your journey. I hope you keep getting those hugs from William whenever you need them most. I send my hugs to you, too, and I hope that you feel them as well.
    Love (including hugs!)
