Introduction
Parenthood. Before we even take home our bundle of joy we are filled with awe, anxiety, and love for this new life we are bringing forth into the world. The first time we hold this precious new life we vow to protect them, to cherish them. Our minds are filled with images of the role we will play in their lives. Dreams flood our imagination. We picture ourselves playing with our child at the park, holding their hand on the first day of school, reassuring them during their teen years, watching through proud eyes their achievements - graduation, marriage, promotions, and someday hopefully experiencing the love in their eyes when they hold their first baby.

But for some parents, their dreams are redefined for their child by the twisted nature of fate. A devastating disease, a tragic moment. In a heartbeat, lives are turned upside down. It is then that the word "Parenthood" takes on its true meaning. This website is dedicated to those parents. Parents who we constantly badger with the question "How Do You Do It?" The same parents who smile at the question and reassure us we have the strength too. For after all we are parents, and we do what must be done.
