This year we splurged a little for E to celebrate her birthday.  Last year I wanted to do a “pony party” at our new home for her fifth birthday, but we ended up being in Latvia for P’s adoption and it was celebrated with a store-bought tasteless cake (since Europe doesn’t sweeten their confections like […]

  • Jennifer - Tami,
    You are truly gifted with the ability to express what is in your
    heart, pain and joy.YOU comfort us when we should comfort you, but know we grieve and hurt with you, never to the extent unless one has experienced your loss, but know we want to carry your burdens.
    Thank you , even though you don’t any, for your explanation. We have talked about what to do with our family members if such tragedy should occur. Maybe because , I have had siblings pass away, and close family members, since I was a young child. My sister died when she was 16, and you never lose that thought.
    Or foget the pain in your parents faces. You will never be the same, but know we are not OF this world. Bless you.April 3, 2014 – 4:10 pmReplyCancel
