I’m grateful I finally got the opportunity to experience the incredible journey of motherhood after trying for 8 1/2 years.  My sons are amazing!  ♥

Thank you to my brother, who is a great friend and a wonderful uncle. He plays the role of “fun uncle” perfectly!
I am grateful he lives close enough to see them often and makes the time to do so.

Whooo-Hooo!  Matt H, for everyone you have touched.

I am grateful for the power of prayer and friends and loved ones who join hands across the country praying for folks in need.
