Wow. It's amazing, how time fades those scars. Both my kids have small vertical scars, right in the middle of their foreheads. They got them for different reasons, but they mark a time in each of their lives when stitches and blood were present. An upsetting period of time. Now fading, I hope that someday they'll be barely visible.
Great post.

Thanks, Omaha. To me it's so amazing that we're living the days we had so much trouble imagining, years ago, when T. was a baby. We faced so many uncertainties and now here we are, and T. is 6, and those memories that once were so vivid and painful are fading, too.
