A teenager full of anger, pain and rage stared at the wall as I tried to help him feel "safe" so he would let me inside of his world. He was in counseling because of his violent rages and desire to "kill people." He also had plans to soon end his own life. I desperately wanted to help him. I saw his pain.

When my baby was 4 months old she caught her first "pneumonia." By one-year-old, she had already been diagnosed with 7-8 "pneumonias" and all 5 specialists assigned to her case, had no idea what was wrong. After each lung disease and immunity test she would encounter, my husband and I would patiently await the results, not knowing what the doctors would tell us.
