First of all I want to thank each and every one of you for your words of encouragement and wisdom.

I want to clarify a few things about the previous post.

1) I deserve no credit or approval regarding this child. My neighbors Dana and Jeff are the ones who are taking her in. They and the others who are volunteering, donating, and supporting deserve all of the praise.

2) From what I have been told. The parents were never reprimanded nor even brought on charges despite the attempts from several people.

3) I do not assume what goes on in other parts of the world and am not condoning the thinking that a whole country acts this way. I appreciate everyone being civil to eachother in their posts and respecting eachother’s views on this horrific act.

4) I am definitely interested in pursuing some sort of charity book. I will continue to look into it. But I also appreciate those who’ve pointed me towards other projects and events that I can participate in as well. I’m going to do my best to help out in what meager way I can.

My wife and our boys are going with our neighbors and the girl to the Library reading hour tomorrow together. I find that I couldn’t even entertain her with me drawing or showing my books or animations. How horrid it feels to be an artist at this point with a blind child in front of me.

I got nothing.

So I thought musical toys and such may be fun for her. If anyone has any experience with blind children. I’d appreciate any recommendations for a 4 year old.

Again. Thank you all. I can’t tell you how nice your comments are to me. I’ve read each and every one of them and it keeps bringing tears to my eyes.

I am almost done with Chapter 9 of Dreamland. And as many of you suggested. Dreamland is my place where good conquors evil. Where the world isn’t so dark.

It may not be much. But it’s something.

Thank you all for visiting Dreamland with me. Even just for a bit.
