When my daughter Grace was born with congenital Cytomegalovirus (cCMV), I wondered if my simple mother-love was enough to help her make it.

How do we cope, all of us who love her? How do I cope as her mother? How do we manage a calendar so drenched in appointments that I can’t even read it anymore?

Well, the answer to that question is probably the most simple and the most complex answer I could ever give - I just do. We all just. do.
