    I actually already read that. A Shelby posted it on her blog. Thanks for continuing to be a voice.

    Thanks once again for explaining how I feel. It was great!

  • Great article, Pamela. I don’t see how anyone who hasn’t been through this couldn’t read that and become a least a little bit more compassionate. I hope you will continue to write like this — it is clearly a big help to a lot of women. Even those who don’t know they need some help…!

  • Great post, Pamela — as always!!

  • Jenn
