|Camey & Katy|
Neither of them has a sister, so I always hoped they would grow up to be close. But as they reached their teen years, their lives diverged, and they took very different paths. There is a story here, but the story is not mine to tell so I am going to resist. All I will say is that Camey took a very hard road. For a while, we thought we were going to lose her completely.
Last weekend they were together again. The occasion was a baby shower for Camey. As the two of them sat and talked, my sister-in-law Nancy and I sat on the sofa and watched. I have to say, a few years ago I never expected to ever see that day. I'm pretty sure Nancy felt the same way. Both of us had tears in our eyes as we watched the two of them talk about childbirth and share experiences.
While sitting there watching I remembered this quote from Winston Churchill "Never, never, never give up!" And I will tell you, her parents never gave up. They fought tooth and nail to save this girl. I think she's going to make it this time. Camey's baby girl is due in less than two weeks. I can't wait to welcome her into the family.
