This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own.

A Short Update

We are so sorry for taking so long to update. Computer/Internet problems are plaguing us left and right.

The GREAT news: Rebekah's scans were clear. Thank you all who have been praying and paitently waiting for results.

The not as great news: Rebekah still continues to be bothered by emotional issues regarding the house. Last thursday her afternoon aid said she did not have a good day at school at kept saying "not booboo house."

Mommy and daddy still are trying to work plus spend as much time trying to salvage what we can and sort out things out at the house. We have had some wonderful people helping out with child care and right now that is the biggest need. We cannot have the girls at the house and we need to be there. Ugh.

So far the rental house has one dining room table and 4 chairs. We have one love seat. And one table in another bedroom with computers on it. We are still looking for dressers big time, as well as other furniture to fill in.

Thank you for all of your ongoing prayers, thoughts and donations. They are ALL extremely helpful.

Thank you so much for the update on Rebekah's scans. We have been checking back every few minutes to hear how they came back. Praise the Lord for good news!
We are praying for all of you during this time. Especially dealing with the house situation. It is hard enough on adults but children even worse. So sorry to hear about your troubles. We are praying that God will wrap His arms around each of you in a very special way in the days ahead.

That is such wonderful news. If you have a wait for dressers use cardboard boxes duct taped on the lids lids folded in in a pinch. (I grew up poor):) Trust it will all come. Take a date time with them if you can. The kids would benifet. She is just scared. How did the fire start? Have you found that out yet? I am so sorry for all the challenges We are praying for all of you and for you and the Mr to keep warm at night in the trailer.
I have a post up for those to pray for you and your.

Parents - God has blessed you and continues to do so.
Rebekah - Someday you will know just how great a love the father has for you, for now He has sent it through these, your amazing parents. May the love of the brethren continue.
Shalom
