      Dr. Rosenberg, I greatly appreciate your honesty in "What would you do if it were your child". You see, I trust you and your expertise because I feel that you genuinely want the best for the children/families whom are battling their way through the storm. Thank you for helping us fight the good fight, as our weapons are love, kindness, strength, courage and hope. My daughter, Angel, is blessed to have you on her team. Thank you, and thank you again for all you do.
