Since we are so bad at keeping everyone posted on our lives we felt that this would be extremely easy for us and everyone else. Also we feel really guilty when we haven't talked to anyone in a long time, so this helps our relationships to continue.
Mark and His Girls
You guys make such a great threesome. She is adorable and will bring lots of pleasure to your lives. We love you guys and wish you the best. Give that little gal a big hug and kiss from your Aunt Sandy and Uncle Steve.

The blog has been so inspiring and lovely....I see great personalities (perfect for Tessa) and a lot of love and beauty. People who are new parents of special needs children almost always wonder if they'll "hold up," especially if care/treatment is long, covering many years. Statistics of divorces are not encouraging. The thing to remember is that you (and we) are different from most people who divorce over a special-needs child, having reinforcements that we're blessed to have. Keep your eyes on each other and looking up, and continue to enjoy yourselves. When you have a hard day, week, month, or year, "fake it until you make it" if nothing else seems to work. If/when you can't even pray, you'll be carried until you can pray. You know that old story! I can tell you from life experience that it's very true. Your parents' old friends, Jim and Nancy
