Since her son suffered burns to 60% of his body in an horrific accident, Karen has been by his side. But to make matters worse, his side happens to be over an hour away from home. Karen has spent 3 months living away from her family in the hospital hostel with less than adequate facilities and no chance for a home cooked meal.

She shares her story with us, and her hopes that one day others like her may have somewhere more like "home" to stay when going through such terrible circumstances.

You can read her story here: http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/parenting/...90623-cuhy.html

And you're welcome to leave comments here for Karen and her family.

Karen ...

I wish I lived closer and could bring you some of the comforts of home and open my home to you and your family, but unfortunately, I know a little of how it feels to be seperated from my family and watching a child in critical condition wishing I had my family nearby so that I could not only draw comfort from them, but also gather them in my arms and tell them that we will all get through this.

I am praying for you, your precious family and especially Adam in his recovery ... I hope that this article raises high awareness of how it is not only the injured family member who suffers, but the whole family.

Take care ... Ky xx

I can't imagine what you have gone through. I hope that Adam's recovery is going well and that you have been able to spend time together as a family.
