On Tuesday evening, Dusty's grandmother left her Earthly body to be with God and spend eternity in Heaven above. We're incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to visit in April for her to meet Samantha and visit with Kaitlyn. And now, Matthew has another family member with him. While we would love to physically be there with everyone who is mourning the loss of an amazing person, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Wishing everyone strength, peace and comfort on their journey of grief. She will be forever missed.
Once upon a time a girl met a boy, fell in love and lived happily ever after.
Unfortunately "happily ever after" isn't always as easy or as blissful as it sounds. I am a wife and mother. In 2004 we had a beautiful little girl, Kaitlyn, adventurous, funny and incredibly outgoing! She certainly keeps us busy!
In 2007 our happily ever after continued with the birth of our son, Matthew, 7 weeks early after 10 weeks of hospital bed rest. That happily ever after came crashing down when Matthew lost his life to SIDS and we said good-bye to our baby boy. Nothing can test your faith, your marriage or you family more than losing a child.
After 3 miscarriages in 2009, we proudly welcomed Samantha Anne into the world.
This is our happily ever after, complete with more reality than the fairy tales ever told me about...
