Our Favorite Girl...

Our sweet Hadley finally got the miracle we've been praying for on friday morning at about 3:30 am. It is not the miracle we had hoped and longed for...but it is her miracle. She is whole again. Our hearts are hurting more than we could have ever imagined...but, we are so thankful that she is finally free. Hadley was always so much bigger than her body, than this, she has no limitations. We will miss her forever and ever...until the day we join her again.

"Things never go so well that one should have no fear, and never so ill that one should have no hope."
-- Turkish proverb

We love you sweet girl...SO much. I hope that you knew that. We are the luckiest family ever to have had you for our very own. You will always be our sunshine baby girl.

Please see Hadley's page for funeral service details.

A New Adventure

In mid January we will be welcoming a Korean foreign exchange student into our home. Today we completed the final step in the application process, the home visit, so it's finally official. We are excited at the opportunity to learn from and teach this eager student about our culture etc. He will be attending school at Columbia (with the boys). He's 15 and his life dream/goal is to go to MIT. We look forward to and are very thankful for the journey ahead. I'm excited to share all our adventures with him with you all. =) If any of you have experience or would like to suggest activities, meals, day/weekend trips etc we would love to hear from you.

Have a great week. =)
