Five quake orphans and three newborns whose mothers have been too traumatized by the quake to produce milk!

Here's the news story:

your last two posts have helped me with my perspective so much, thank you. we're feeling sorry for ourselves because we hate the neighborhood where we live and rent here in los angeles is SO ridiculous that it's almost impossible to move anywhere nice, but then i read things like this and realize how lucky i really am. how full, how free.
