Michael disappeared into the haze, his face graying out and blending with watery droplets. Suddenly a baby cried. A soft noise so quiet it hardly made an impression. 
She stiffened. Again, a mewling echoed in the distance. She leaned over the side of the tub to get a better view. Warm mist coalesced into a lacy fog. On the other side of the bathroom a cradle shimmered. The flowered linoleum floor supported a white wicker cradle with a pinkish veil drawn across the opening. Four wooden legs held up the cradle with white paint flecking off ancient legs.
Stunned, she pulled herself to her feet, got out of the tub, and walked toward the cradle. She touched the wood, finding it soft with mold, then drew the veil from the cradle as the material rotted away in her hands. There, lying on a bed of stained red satin, was the decaying remains of an infant, its mouth contorted in agony. Bits of skull showed in-between wizened skin, its eyes gone, forever sightless. Her stomach contracted and her breath hitched. From a depth she hadn’t known existed within her, she screamed.
Kellyn’s eyes flew open, her heart thumping in fear. One hand held Scott’s fingers in a death grip while the other curled defensively around the child in her womb. She drew in a deep breath while tears sprang from her eyes. Her heart ratcheted up a beat, and the hand that protected her belly flew to her chest.
Jesus. I can’t breathe!

 Thanks to Island Fresh I got the opportunity to try their Coconut Oil. I have tried coconut oil before but never realized all of the benefits that it has. Let me tell you a little bit about the product.

     Island Fresh Coconut Oil is one of nature's most precious gifts to culinary gurus, beauty experts and fitness junkies everywhere. Cold-pressed and never heated, we use a traditional method of oil extraction that protects essential nutrients and antioxidants, just the way nature intended.

Replace refined oils and butter for this household must-have - a healthy alternative the whole family can enjoy!

How to Use Island Fresh Coconut Oil

Weight Management:
Use up to 4 tablespoons per day in individual doses to benefit from our coconut oil's high MCT (
medium chain triglycerides) content.

Topical Use: 
Lauric acid is coconut oil's strongest MCT and leaves your skin looking more radiant than ever. Apply coconut oil to skin daily for irritations, dryness and more.
Apply coconut oil to skin as a natural sunscreen, face cream and overnight treatment for everyday skin care. The ultimate food for your skin!
Hair Mask:
Help revive thin and brittle looking hair by placing a small amount of coconut oil in between the palm of your hands to let it melt, and apply to scalp or ends of hair. Allow the nutrients to settle overnight for a conditioning hair treatment.
My Thoughts- 
My husband brough home some Summer Flounder so I decided to cook it in the coconut oil. The oil was solid but liquefied quickly and produced a wonderful aroma. At first I thought that the oil would overcome the delicate taste of the fish but it complimented it and the taste was great. I also sauteed some kale,onions, and mushrooms in the oil and the vegetables had a subtle taste of coconut that was not overwhelming.
 I suffer from cracked dried feet so I applied some of the oil to my feet at night for a couple of days and it made my feet feel softer. So give the product a try!! You will not be disappointed. It is available from Amazon at a fantastic price. You get a 54 ounce jar that will last you months and has so many uses.

Disclaimer: I was given a free jar of the product for my honest review and I was not compensated for my review.
