    Both of you did a long journey these 12 months… Amazing job, hard sometimes… you, Kyla and all the family… Your house is the best place she could find… Nobody would understand her so fully… nobody would help her to develop that wonderfully… to see her power… to fly on her own wings…
    You made me crying, reading this post.

    • Thank you Lilly. That is so sweet of you. You are such a precious, dear friend. You understand things that I don’t often share with others.
