Your Gift

Dear Liba,
I just finished your story and I have tears in my eyes. First of all, you are an extraordinary writer - I felt like i was there with you in the hospital room and through the learnings of your child's condition. I celebrate your courage and strength, your love. You are an extraordinary woman who has given birth to an extraordinary child. WE do not know why we have been given certain roads to walk in this life, but you are walking with pride and love, and in the end, that is what matters. I can't wait to hear the future in your words.
By the way, one does not need to be a journalist to inform, inspire and empower others with words. You have that gift. Two gifts!

The future still needs to be told

Hello Jensine

Your words make me proud and they also bring tears into my own eyes because they are words I rarely hear in my everyday struggles which is full of ridicule and accusations about what I didnt do right in life. You are very right about the future having to be told. I still need to gather enough strength to tell what has been happening since that time but I think with all your support I will get there eventually.

Thanks so much.

Dear Liba. You are a strong

Dear Liba.

You are a strong and wonderful woman with a special gift of God. Hats off to you and your family for taking on every challenge of life. I don't want to hurt you and don't answer that if u don't wish to ;one question that plagued my mind was where is the father of the your gift.

You really moved me with your story but wahy have u posted it as such. Why didn't u post thw whole. I wanted to send it to a lot of people for inspiration . Because dear you are such an inspiration.

Jennifer has asked us to extend our support to two correspodants who are facing some glitches. I was really regretting why I havn't read this post before. Please post the whole in Pulsweir. You can edit the post and then copy paste your story. Please do that at your convinence.

And about the VOF porgramme Just believe u can do it. We are all with you.

With lots of love to you, Mpho and family.
A kiss to Mpho. Kiss him on forehead (they say it increases the recipents life)

With lots of love
