to the man that said God will heal my son

” You know, God will heal your son.” A few weeks ago we went to the pool.  It was a cooler day, but we had been visiting my parents for the weekend and we had gotten home and wanted to do something fun as a family.  We knew the pool wouldn’t be crowded, which it wasn’t.  It turned out to be a great night for a quick, hour of family swim time.  We got out of the pool and dried...

As a parent, these are the types of memories I want my kids to have when they think of summertime, but when you have a...
