Humbling

A few weeks ago we were asked by the oncology social worker if we would be willing to give an interview about our family for the paper.  We were a bit surprised.  We said we would, believing that they would be doing stories on several families for their Christmas edition.  The reporter came to our home, as well as a photographer, and we were able to talk about our favorite people in the whole world -- our kids.  :)  We assumed that it would be a small story, again thinking that there would be other families featured.  We asked the reporter where the story would be so we could look for it.  She told us it would be on the front page.  We were more than a little surprised.  

The article came out today and we are very happy with how it turned out.  You can read it here,

Wow. Made me cry. So sweet and real. I love how the journalist emphasized the mysteries and beauty of the power of falling in love to make your heart open to what the mind would say no to. It was like that for us too--we met and got engaged when Lynn was in NY and I was in Seattle, and then with our lil girl as well. ;) lots of love to you all!

Wow - what a great summary of your sweet family! I know it doesn't touch the surface of all the pain and heartache you've gone through this year. How wonderful to read about your love for one another and your sweet babies.

Thanks for sharing this!
