From the Author
The result is exactly what I hoped for: Lily's more at ease with her emotions, knows what she can do when she feels them, knows that it's safe to say whatever she feels, knows that her Mommy will be there steadfastly and lovingly by her side through it all, and that there is a joyful reunion coming with her Daddy.
I fervently hope that this book will help your child through the long, difficult separations, too. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
