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. Please find joy in what you read here.

Back To Reality

We are just about finished packing up and having to leave this wonderful place and head back to reality.

As if it was just here for us to give us a beautiful white blanked during our retreat the snow has been melting and revealing the ground and asphalt clear and ready for us to drive away. The passes look wet and should be passable without concern of ice or snow: PassCam

That last thing we will do here before heading back over the mountain is to go to a court hearing to finalize another one of daddy's babies to their new family. With the swipe of a pen the Judge culminates months (and sometimes years) worth of work and emotions, legally sealing a family together forever. It is an honor to be able to help with that.

Please pray for us for a safe drive and for the emotions that come with being back in reality. Tomorrow we have a large number of appointments for mommy and those are always hard. Also please pray for mommy's breathing. Something we have been ignorning (or at least trying to) was a phone call we got just before leaving last week. Mommy's breathing tests on Monday were not as good as we would have liked and the nurse called telling us that they feel there is a need to assist mommy's breathing with a bi-pap machine. This is not exactly something we wanted to be hearing.
