asunrae, welcome to our extraordinary family but I am so very sorry to read about your daughter. I cannot imagine, and I simply don't have the words. I have a Grandaughter at NAU and she is going in to her Junior year. We do have more younger people joining our CC site and we just don't know whys. The only thing we can come up with is environmental as a guess. There is some good news as research is being done now and in fact we were excited to see a TV MED program last week that mentione a man having CC. That was a first. I think it was NY MED on ABC. Know that you did the best you could and if you don't mind I found a poem about losing a child, I would like to post it for you.
I'll Lend You A Child
by Edgar Guest
"I'll lend you for a little time a child of mine," He said.
For you to love - while she lives
And mourn for when she's gone.
It may be six or seven years
Or twenty-two or three,
But will you, till I call her back,
Take care or her for Me?
She'll bring hers smiles to gladden you,
And should this stay be brief
You'll have her lovely memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay,
Since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there
I want this child to learn.
I've looked this world over
In search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd
Life's lanes, I have selected you.
Now will you give her all your love,
Nor count the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call to
Take her back again?"
The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness,
We'll love her while we may,
And for the happiness we've known
Forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for her
Much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that come
And try to understand."
