  • I'm on my own now. How will I support Emily?
  • I can no longer endure sharing want with you.
  • Difference spurs worry.

  • Patience creates triumph.
  • Hahahaha
  • Emily wins her school's amateur show.

  • She's missed the past week
  • "To her overworked and exasperated teachers she was an overconscientious 'slow learner' who kept trying to catch up and was absent entirely too often."

  • It's wonderful that Emily is now eating and talking a lot more.
