Thank You

 I wish my words could convey how deeply touched I have been by so many of  you over the past few days.  When I decided to speak about Thomas and Our Story, my intention was to help the OSNS Child Development Centre and to show our family's appreciation for their tireless work.  Never did I ever think that I would benefit as well.  And I have, over and over again.  The hundreds of messages I received have moved me to tears countless times.  Your messages of support, love and understanding have been overwhelming.  I actually had to step away a few times to really acknowledge to myself what was happening.  What is happening.  I have been flooded on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and in person by your backing.  Thank you for enveloping our family with such a deep love.  The struggles we face are very similar to the things many of you are going through and the stories you have shared with me privately have been extremely touching.  Parenthood and all the nuances that come with it can make for a lonely place at times.  I no longer feel alone.  Instead, I feel lifted up with light and hope and strength.  
Many of you have thanked me for being brave enough to speak out.  
I thank you.
