I am, and will always be, thankful to God for giving me the gift of Malcolm. My husband and sons are my reason for being. If I could go back in time would I choose not to give birth to Malcolm? It was a difficult pregnancy; I hemorrhaged and eventually lost his twin. I was on bed rest for nearly 2 months with continued spotting. The doctor suggested a D & C — a termination — because of the blood loss and the possibility of damage to the remaining baby. Would I have preferred a termination then to watching him struggle with depression and finally lose at 24? Look at his smile and answer that for yourself.
Malcolm was a precious, precious gift and I will be eternally grateful for his presence in my life. He is part of me always. His smile brought joy to my heart, his humor brought joy to my life.
Happy Turkey Day Malcolm, I miss you so much!
