Hello again.

I don’t know that I was clear enough on the last post about my intentions with this blog.  And frankly, I really don’t know what to do with it.

The kids and I are doing well.  We are managing most days, flourishing some days and holding on to each other for all of them.

We’ve sold and moved from the house that all 5 of us used to live in.   That was a big deal for us.  Both Jacoba and Zion played soccer this summer and had a blast.  Zekijah is an absolute joy.  We built a house this summer.  324 feet from my parents (but who’s counting)…  It will be great for Zion, Jacoba and Zekijah to grow up beside them.

It seems strange for me to just jump back on here and ask you for a request but I’m going to do that.

If you have a story or something that I could share with the kids later in life about either your journey with Marisa, or even what her plight has meant to you, would you please let me know?  I’d love to be able to compile that for the kids to read later.  I think that will be meaningful for them.  I know it will be for me.

I wish you peace.
