Life Goes On

Even though I wanted life to stop and I felt like life had stopped on November 18th, the reality is that it hasn’t.

Life had been tough. I have mentioned that before many times.  However, since adopting the twins we saw God provide for their needs in so many countless ways. For example, we had had countless and unending difficulties with staffing Charles’ care, especially at night. When the babies were born, having 2 babies, it was literally […]

One Month – The Unexpected Journey

It’s been a month. A month that in so many ways seems like forever and in other ways like a day. I have learned so much and grown so much. I can see God’s hand at work over the past year – really difficult year and I can see how God was at work during […]

When I walked into the NCLEX (the exam nurses take to become an RN) I knew I could have as little as 75 questions or as many as 285. I was prepared for 285 because I felt that it would be a close call if I passed or not. (The dean of the school of […]
