Auggie,

I went to Gentle Touch's web as you suggested and read - in horror - your story. It's hard for me to believe that any kid should have to live through that stuff, and it's nothing short of amazing to me that you're walking and talking today.

I am really impressed with your strong faith and optimism...you are truly a survivor in the most remarkable sense! I am particularly impressed with your declaration that it's time to be "ME!"

Thanks for giving me inspiration, Auggie. Your determination is both helpful and reaffirming.

Stay with us....we can help each other heal.
