Glad to see you guys are home. We pray for all of you daily, and in fact there is some squabbling at times about who gets to pray for you specifically at our morning devotions. My husband will say, "ok what do we need to pray about today and usually my littlest one will say "I have trishanateandgwyneth" (like you guys are a single unit). We wish you all the best!

Sometimes CF, as hard as it is, is actually a blessing, because you look at the person you love and think, "I will enjoy you everyday, every minute, every second."

I hope you enjoy every minute of your darling girl. She gets cuter everyday.
