Sad Story?

I came across a posting on a motherhood forum that described Vera's journey as a "sad story".

Hmmm...is this the impression some people get from reading about her?

Which part of it is so sad? Perhaps if Vera had passed on (touch wood), I would understand.

But she's alive and kicking, overcoming the odds, surprising the disbelievers.

Or perhaps it's sad that we've been so unlucky to "kena" a genetically abnormal baby - every parent's worst nightmare?

The truth is, we experience joy and satisfaction more deeply than you can imagine.

Yes we will be sad one day. But surely not now!
