Life lessons learned

While my son fell prey to a Stage IV Wilms' tumor, his twin sisters, also age 5, were forced to quit kindergarten. Their almost inexcusable absences from school and inability to socialize in a kindergarten classroom allowed them to give attention and show support and love toward their brother; thus teaching family values by radically changing their lifestyles to fit the needs of their sick brother sentenced to weeks on end in a gloom-and-doom setting called a hospital.

In the hospital they learned appropriate behaviors filled with hope, witnessing respect, compassion and love for life - all skills that carry successful people through life.

Making the choice to have the girls restart kindergarten at the age of 6 will not be a choice I regret.

Happily parenting.
