A Great BIG Thank You

I wanted to update everyone on Evan's team "For the Love of Evan." I am SO excited to report that we met and even exceeded our goal of raising money for autism awareness. Thank you goes out to all of my family and friends out there who honored Evan by making a pledge in his team's name. There are also many of you that I don't know personally who have donated on Evan's behalf, and for that kindness I am extremely grateful. And, for those of you who have prayed for Evan and our family, THANK YOU. There really isn't anything better you could do for us!

Most of all, thank you to Meagan, Megan, and Lauren for taking the initiative to start a team and naming it in honor of my son! All of the love and kindness that has been shown our family in these last months has given us light in this sometimes dark journey of autism. Our family has come a long way since that diagnosis day. Now, we live in the present and hope for the future. We are so blessed!

Thank you all! My heart is full!

My sweet, happy boy this afternoon. Oh, how I love this boy!

I love that picture - it makes me miss him so much. I miss that sweet voice saying my name, and all of the hugs & kisses I used to steal.
