Do The Math...She Did

one drinking mother
two incapable parents
plus inattention
multiplied by abuse

equals one
minus one corpus callosum
plus several seizures
add one shunt
and dozens times dozens
of social miscues
divided by wry smiles
plus one pure voice
of song

add two new parents
plus patience and hope

go on and you do the math


  1. This is one lucky, lucky girl. Your family is the best.

  2. Kids take the brunt of a bad situation - yet are resilient
    Add a measure of love and the results are amazing

    Excellent Jerry
    Happy week end with those kids of yours

  3. Your daughter is adorable!
    Loved your 55!
