ROCKPORT - The facts would add up to a sad story if not for the intangible conqueror, love.

Amy, 18 months, born three months premature, requires around-the-clock care, a complicated task that falls on her mother Cheryl, whose opportunities for respite are few.

Amy has a feeding tube for an expensive, high-calorie formula because she can't eat enough to thrive. Reflux is among her maladies.

The feeding tube rules out day care for Amy. It also limits how much friends and relatives can help Cheryl because they don't have her on-the-job training in taking care of the tube and the hole for it in Amy's midsection.
