I hate hurting children.
If I could though I would work with sick children all the time.
They just don't understand that nurses hurt them to make them better.
I start 99% of the IV's on children in the ER when I am there.
I make a deal with the kids...you have a job and I have a job, yours is to hold still...yell, scream, cry all you need to...my job is to stick you one time, draw your blood start your fluids and be done.

awwwww poor thing! I don't have kids but I can imagine how that could break your heart. It tugs at my heartstrings and I've never met her! You seem like such a good mom. I remember that look of heartbreak in my mom's eyes when I got upset about things like that. It always made me feel better that she cared so much, even if I acted like I was mad at her too.
Great post and the pic works very poeticly with it. Take care!

Hey Camille,
I just read your clarification post. My friend also has a girl with Down Syndrome we spend endless time together. I was really touched by your pictures and posts of Grace.
I am trained in special education and love it. Just thought I would share.

The pics are beautiful

I know how that poor little sweetheart feels. I still feel like that hurting little girl when I get stabbed with needles.
