The dedication in the front of this book, "The Waiting Child" that I'm reading

'For the millions of children on this earth like [my daughter].
For those who live each day in the never-ending darkness
of a life without a mama
to shield you from the storms,
to hold you when you hurt,
to dry your tears,
to love you...

May you survive, as she did, with your soul intact.
May you hang on to hope, as she did, with both hands.

May you believe.'

Isn't that a great book?
I kept getting choked up.
