So I go through the routine.
So I call the hospital chaplain, Reverend Serafin. Sounds like a name out of a novel but that is indeed her real name.
She does her best.... and I am grateful, because I don't have what it takes to give what this child needs today.
Wow Scotty what a wonderful and heartbreaking testimony. Clearly you do have what it takes and that's a deep felt compassion, that this child could experience. Thank you for sharing it with all of us. These kinds of moments are transformational, for all concerned. Kara
