an angel

The beautiful little angel Lakshmi, who was named after the 8 limbed Hindu goddess of wealth, has finally gone home from the hospital in Bangalore after a 2 month stay. The 2 year old finally stood on her own, after a 27 hour operation to remove her headless conjoined twin. I followed this story from the start, and thought there was no chance she would stand, perhaps not even make it through the massive operation. It's stories like this that make my, and should make everyone else's troubles, seem small. Every picture I've ever seen of her showed a smiling gorgeous girl who was full of life and free spirit. Congratulations to her parents and I wish her all the success in the world to her.
