And if it were your $50k to help Isaac, you'd do it in a heartbeat. Probably using
the $50k you were expecting to use for yourself.

I'm glad Isaac is feeling better, I didn't realize he was unwell. The Big Mother
idea is alluring, but there's this added aura to the *real* mother - safety. The
baby feels secure, but will adults?

We well remember damn near walking our legs off trying to comfort a crying unhappy
baby and lull it to sleep. Hell of a way to spend a night when you have to go to
work in the morning!
