It saddens me so much that we are on round five of the holidays we are missing together. Grandmom saw my daughter's picture and hardly recognized her and that breaks my heart. We are not even given picture updates. That is the level of cruelty we are subjected to and fighting for our kids. Without those you love, the holidays are really not holidays much at all. It is family, friends, and those you hold dear that MAKE holidays special and worth celebrating.
