    Great story, I hope Gracie's Mom gets the care she needs!
    Also, I love that Gracie's teacher really seems to "get" her...
    every kid needs that...

    Excellent Gracie!
    What a good feeling to read an uplifting story for a change!
    God bless Gracie and her mom and I hope the kidney and pancreas come through for you soon so you can finish your schooling - we need more people like yourself in the medical field who truly understand what it is to be compassionate while caring for others who need help.
