Dear Gouvelas

Sometimes you kick fatherhood's ass, and sometimes it kicks yours.

It has been a devastating and heartbreaking thing to read Aaron's account on Daddyfiles of his and his wife MJ's discovery, via an early ultrasound, that their daughter possibly had serious, yes, in fact, very serious, actually, extremely rare and, progressive, and terminal developmental defects.

In fact, having what I thought was a really rough week last week, I took a break. Which I realize is an incredible luxury Aaron & MJ did not have. I hope you'll keep their family in your hearts and prayers; they've got a tough row to hoe.

Goodbye Princess. And Thank You. [daddyfiles]

Thank you for this. Every time I see someone posting something about our situation or retweeting the link to the video, it lifts my spirits because it's one more person who might remember our unborn baby.

So thanks. Really.

Thank you for posting this. I can't imagine how much pain this family must be in, but I'm hoping that knowledge that people all over the world are praying for them brings them some comfort.

How very gutting.

I can't even begin to imagine the pain that a situation like this must generate.

As to the god-botherers out 'saving lives'...
Daddy Files is a LOT more controlled than I'd have been in that situation. There'd have been a few protesters scrabbling in the gutter for their teeth if they'd pushed me on a day like that.

A buddy of mine works at a Planned Parenthood. He vents his frustration with rather silly photoshop works of them and their signs.

So brave of them to share this, I hope they find some solace.

Thanks for posting this.This really a heart breaking about the family.I can imagine how much pain the family is undergoing.I pray through all my heart that they must get some relief.
