A Christmas Miracle of Love. By Marcie Ann Gore. Description, Dick and Barbara's first Christmas as a Married couple. This is a dream come true, for all Babs and Dick supporters.( note to Chuck get yourself in gear and make our dream of Dick and Babs together come true.)
Prologue: Dr. Leslie Tompkins office November 27, the Monday after Thanksgiving.
"I'm so sorry Barbara and Dick, I wish I had better news for you," Dr Tompkins tells us. "All of the tests I've run on Barbara today seem to show the same thing. The damage the bullet did to your reproductive organs has made your carrying a baby to term highly unlikely."
I start to cry. Dick and I have been trying to have a baby together for most of the year we've been married. "Leslie, I still have my period regularly, why can't I have a baby? If I have a hole in my uterus why does my cycle still come regularly? I feel cramps with same intensity I did before I was shot." Dick lets me cry in his strong arms.
