Glad so many of us are sending them in. I was just thinking and wonder if my dh could send one in too or if its like one person per household type deal basically it would be different perspectives of the same story (hopefully that makes sense lol) He thinks highly of the PF and knows how much you guys have been here and helped me.

Submitted my entry... perhaps number of entries will get their attention - even if PF isn't selected maybe they will give us some publicity in another way.

Just sent mine in....thinking about what I wanted to share brought up a lot of memories, and many that I would like to forget about. It did feel good to cry and realize how lucky I am to have my daughter!

So glad so many of us are getting ours sent in wont it be awesome if the PF gets it!!!! Thats ALOT of money (at least that it says they have raised in the past)I am sure PF could use it too, and ya 200 words isnt alot of writing space.

Ok, after MUCH editing and sacrificing to get it down to 200 words (200 on the dot, BTW), I have submitted my entry. What I originally wrote was closer to 300, but I managed to shorten it enough. [xx(] Who else is writing one?
