    Hey, Michael, what a beautiful story. Knowing all that Michelle went through and to see her now with her darling daughter, is thrilling! I am so happy for her. The photos are outstanding and she and her daughter look so happy and fabulous. This must have been a very rewarding story to write, and you did it so well. Give us more feel good stories, Michael. This was great!……..

    Why was my previous comment deleted? That entire first paragraph is just a giant run-on sentence. It’s painful to read.

    Hi Courtney:
    I couldn’t agree with you more, as a writer when I turn in a story to an editor, they infuse their choices and styles sometimes into pieces and work the way they think suits their style of magazine. So my words and construct often times gets revised as did this one. But I hope you enjoyed the meaning behind the story and the photos of Michelle.

    Best,
    Michael

    I agree with Doe in saying what a beautiful story and photo’s you did Michael.
    Michelle is the best. I am so happy for her. I remember back in the day I had emailed her about her having a brain tumor and how I was so happy she survived. My late husband had passed away from his brain tumor. She wrote me the most beautiful letter back and even wished my mother a Happy Birthday at that time. She looks so content and beautiful with her adorable daughter. Thank you again!
