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. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting.

Happy Birthday Sarah

Yesterday mommy and daddy had a meeting with Rebekah's Psychologist hoping to get some ideas on how to talk to the girls about mommy's ALS. The good news is that we were already on the right track as to what we were thinking; the bad news is that we did not get any magical ideas to make it easy. We are not surprised but we did hope. We did get some good insight on kiddo perspective though. We will probably work on talking with them this weekend.

On a more wonderful front today is Sarah's 5th birthday! Happy birthday Sarah!!!

Happy 5th Birthday to Sarah! Wishing the family all the joy and happiness in celebrating this big day. I know God will give you the words to say and the wisdom to guide you through telling the girls the news about mommy. We will continue to pray for peace and guidance as you continue to forge ahead.
