Marin's Story

by Iain, age 11

When my sister Marin was born, I thought that the world was going to be better forever, but I was wrong. Learning that my sister had a birth defect threw off the whole scenario of life. It was hard to look at my sister in a giant incubator with cords all over the place, but when she grabbed on to my hand, I knew that there was some happiness.

Marin first came home the day before my birthday, but she had to go back so many times. I would love her with all of my heart. She was truly, my sunshine.
