Thank you

During the last few months I have experienced so many emotions. Joy and deep sadness…loving and grieving…bonding and letting go. The loss of my son Thad has been the most devastating experience and by far the hardest time in my life. At least I thought it was. The day that I was supposed to lay Thad to rest became the day Jude was diagnosed with a mass 1/3 the size of his little body. As you can imagine the shock and disbelief of Jude's diagnosis combined with the grieving of his twin brother has been overwhelming. I can honestly say that I would not have been able to go on the way I have without my faith combined with the love and support of family and friends. Over the last few months so many people have stopped everything in their lives to help us get through these trying days. Acquaintances have become like family members, strangers have become close friends. Ironically the most horrific time in my life has also become the most special. The outpouring of generosity shown by so many has been immense. Our weekly universal prayers for my son was another example of that support. I truly believe in the power of prayer and knowing that so many people came together to pray for Jude's healing was surreal. The Lord God Almighty hears the prayers of His children. He commands us to pray, and He promises to listen when we do. Words can never fully express my gratitude to all that are praying for Jude. I look forward to the day that I can let you all know that God has answered our prayers!

With so much love ,
