I share the comments above, but have to ask why women, who have to raise children on their own, and there are plenty more of them, aren't treated with the same amount of oohh and aahh?

If this story doesn't remind us to love those who are in our life then I don't know what will. We can loose them quick. We think we are young and will have each other for a long time but we never know.
