Imagine having to trust a stranger with the thing you love the most. Imagine not understanding that strangers language as he tries to explain the procedure he is about to perform. Imagine only loving your child so much that you hope this stranger can help. Imagine the privilege it is to hand that child back to the mother after surgery and watch her look at her beloved child as she cries tears of joy. After a few tender moments with her child she wipes away her tears of joy, looks up at you and smiles. You see in her eyes more gratitude than you thought was humanly possible to display. Your emotions now come to the surface, and you silently look at each other sharing tears of joy. This is a mement never to be forgotten. My prayer is that every medical provider in every scope of practice has the opportunity to become this stranger some day.
