    Love, Ellen

    Hi. Just stumbled across your story. Much of what you wrote about Luna’s recovery reminds me of what my children experienced after the death of our youngest son, almost 5 years ago. Our 2 oldest children – then 5 & 9 were there in the room when I walked in & discovered that our 6 week old son was not breathing. I am quite sure that they will never forget my scream and my complete despair. We also had 2 year old twins, one of whom thinks she remembers when the paramedics stormed through our house. I don’t think my son’s death is the same type of trauma as a violent rape but I feel similarities in the aftermath when I read what you wrote. We are constantly amazed at the trickle effects that are still felt now. My faith was shaken and we have lost something that we had before. I can’t quite name it but I can feel it. Anyhow, we are doing OK now. Yes, children are resilient but I agree that something like this is not ever forgotten. Kudos to you for being present for your daughter. Just imagine how strong she’s going to be.
