Hi Everybody!!! Please wear your turquoise on Wednesday, March 31st for Kaden and all of the other diaphragmatic hernia fighters!!! Thank you in advance for all of your support and for thinking of them!!!
I just wanted to take this time to thank all of you for your support through the last couple of years. I know that I haven't posted in a long while and that when I do they are few and far between. Life has just been pretty busy, and I have kind of lost "interest" (for lack of a better word) in keeping up the blog. In the midst of not keeping up with it I have failed to keep up with all of yours as well. I do want you all to know that I still think of you and keep you all in my prayers. I have found some very close "blogging world" friends that have touched my heart. I thank you for those special relationships that have formed. I do plan to continue my blog, I just have to find the time and "ability" to write, I guess.
As for a quick update...Brody turned one about a month ago. He is walking very well, and running and getting into everything. He for the most part is a happy guy. I have a feeling once those teeth come all the way in he will stop some of the whining. Kaden is almost done with kindergarten. He has missed a lot of school due to being sick. It is in the back of my mind that he might need to retake it...but I haven't talked to anyone about that yet. We will see. He is growing like a weed and coming up with the funniest things to "say" (type). The other day he had to change his card to yellow at school for not following directions. When I asked him why he had to change his card he typed "because yellow is my favorite color." It was hard not to laugh. Well, that is just a quick update and I will try to post pictures again.
March 31st is Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Day. Please wear turquoise this day for Kaden and all of the other's who have been diagnoised with this birth defect.

Special Angel In Heaven
There's a special Angel in Heaven that is a part of me. It is not where I wanted her but where God wanted her to be.
She was here but just a moment like a night time shooting star. And though she is in Heaven she isn't very far.
She touched the heart of many like only an Angel can do. I would've held her every minute if the end I only knew.
So I send this special message to the Heaven up above. Please take care of my Angel and send her all my love. -Author unknown
A WALK TO REMEMBER
I walk to remember the steps you'll never take. I carry you with me as I firmly plant my feet. Our trek started long ago, before my belly swelled. You were a love that grew-like butterfly wings that beat. Your gentle flutters than became kicks upon which I would dwell. And I would talk to you, sweet babe, about the world you soon would meet. The sun always shown upon us then-when you were in my womb. And I was eager to show you the world that would have been your home. How you'd have loved the sun shining-blue skies without a cloud. The autumn leaves turning-the snow falling all around. The flowers in the summer,would have filled your eyes with smiles. And the rain that might have fallen would have caused you great surprise. You would have traveled far with me-holding me by the hand. And I'd have shown you all I could-more than I can imagine. You hold my heart tightly now, as thought we're holding hands. How far we've traveled, little one-and my life with you has been sweet. For I carry you in my heart as I firmly plant my feet.
I have four wonderful, beautiful children. Three are here on earth with us, the other received her wings and is now in Heaven watching over us. I take pride in my children, they are the strongest people I have ever met. I have been blessed to be a part of their lives. I am TRULY grateful that God chose my husband and I to love these children. I have never known a greater love than a mommy's love.
THE CHOSEN ONES I had a dream the other night. It came to me so clear. I stood before the throne of God,afraid to come too near. God said to me, "I hear your prayers. There are answers you can't find. I brought you here to talk to me and help to ease your mind. "I said,"Well, yes, God, I am upset...About my special one. This punishment is awfully harsh...Whatever have I done?" God looked at me and shook his head, He said, "My Dear, you've got it wrong. I sent this special child to you because you are so strong. I searched and searched to try and find someone with a love so rare. Parents so unselfish they could give him that special care. I try to save my special gifts,like those you're speaking of,for a special kind of parents I call the 'Chosen Ones. 'Of all the ones to choose from,I know I've got it done...Parents who deserve my best,an honor you have won." -Unknown
