"I didn't realize how many memories I had buried deep within the darkness of my soul until God shed his light within the pages of your book!!! There are so many things that I could relate tooo and still living with everyday!!! Like the revolving door of doctor's visits to Timbuck Two and back only to be turned away or better yet, made worse, the so called God hearing christians that make you feel like it is somehow your fault for adhesions, the entire family being affected in their own ways but still loving you unconditionally, the sometimes being so tired of it all you just want to give up But God sends you a golden nugget (like your book) to give you strength to endure another day and to let you know you are not the only one walking this dark difficult road !!!
Thank you so much for opening up your hearts and home to share with others how devastating this illness really is!!! I am so happy that there was a Rainbow at the end of your long journey & I Pray that your Rainbow will always remain bright!!! Love & God Bless You & Your Family
"Karen and Melissa, I'm so thankful you took us on this ARD journey. I have hope that one day my pain and problems will be resolved. I've walked in Melissa's shoes--always in pain, and never an answer. I understood her anger, as I have been so angry for years.
Illness makes you crazy. One day you believe in God, the next day you don't! I like that you told it the way it really is! God knows anyways! Oh, how I relate! I cried for you both, just as I cry for myself. Bless you for trying to make this illness publicly known."
"Anyway, you did a wonderful job with your book! It is not just a mother's story about her daughter's disease, it is the work of a real author. Sometimes I was in tears and sometimes I had to chuckle about the Southern expressions, the "y'alls"I know and miss so much from living in _______. Once I read that there is a "y'all" and a "you guys" zone in the United States. My husband definitely comes from the "you guys" zone-he is from ____!!! Anyway, your book will always be among my favorites because it touched my heart and because I can relate to it so well."
And thanks to those who take the time to write! We link our hearts to yours!
