You know........ Emma is not "my dog"..... she's not from a litter born to me... she's not a baby I sought out and brought home with the intention of raising to be "my new love".... she's not even the pup of a "friend of a friend of a family member"....

She didn't start out as my "obligation" or my "responsibility"...

She's not even going to remain with me once she is well.....

I simply happened upon her story, much like all of you.... and my heart could not refuse her.

I am doing my very best for this precious, precious soul.......... and that's all I can do..... I may NOT make all the right decisions for Emma... I don't know - - - but I pray that God will guide me in how best to care for her and that He will hold her in His healing hands through her struggles..... I don't know how to do anything more.

This is not about MY needs..... whether or not I am well... whether or not I "have time" to nurture her..... whether or not I "can afford" her care.... whether or not I "have it in me" to give to what some may see as a "painstakingly worthless effort"..............

This is not about what I want...... I have a life... I have children coming back from summer vacation tomorrow... starting back to school the day after tomorrow.... I still have the loss of a beloved family pet to help my son get through.... I have a brand new grandchild ready to join the world any day now... I have hobbies and entertainment and friends - - all being neglected.... I have my Yorks who already take so much love and care.... I have home repairs that have gone unfinished... appointments that haven't been kept.... dinners that haven't been made.... laundry that hasn't been done... and the dream of a 3 hour bubble bath that STILL awaits me.........................

IT DOESN'T MATTER!!! None of it makes a difference!! NONE of that will stop me from giving Emma the best possible care that I am able to provide to her. EVERYONE here in this house will continue to work our daily lives and schedules AROUND EMMA........ because, in this family, we carry our weak... and right now... Emma is a part of our family... and her well being is what's important.

So if none of THAT can affect my love for this tiny little being........... the comments by those who cannot possibly feel my heart - - - will certainly not lead me to disregard her.....

My dedication to this little creature whom God has entrusted to me...... will not waiver.... My faith in Him - WHATEVER His plan for Emma - is unfailing....

Maybe she won't survive........ but the trials endured will not go without having served the purpose that God has intended..... and I know in my heart, that one tiny girl in this world, even if only for a while.... will have learned what it is, to feel loved - despite the pain.
