    That is so, SO amazing… I can really relate to this. In my 20’s I was recording my music & my bass player’s sister-in-law gave birth to a terminally ill baby (that had only weeks to live). I was so distraught that I sat down at the piano and in one setting wrote this lullaby for this child and recorded “Rest in His Arms” with vocals and strings & sent it to them on a cassette. My bass player, Rob, told me after the baby passed in a letter that they had played this for the baby all the time in the hospital neo-natal unit (nursery) for her. I cry thinking of it now. I am now back in an online graduate program for clinical psychology, but I want to use all my abilities to help heal and at least pacify people’s pain. I hope I can transfer to Vanderbilt in the fall….Thank you so much for sharing this, Sue:)
