Hey girls,
I just wanted to check in really quick and tell you all how thankful I am for all of your support and love
I have been getting cards, letters, and packages in the mail non-stop; it makes me feel so blessed to have so many friends who care and were touched by our story. It has also been such a blessing financially, mentally, and emotionally. "Thank you" isn't good enough to accurately convey how much I appreciate and love you girls for doing what you do!

Daniel and I are doing okay. It's one day at a time. There are some days that are absolutely horrible and other days that are relatively easy to get through. These past several days I have had Jenny and Amy in town (as well as a mutual friend who lives down the road), which has really helped me to pick myself up and get out of the house. My mom is on her way now and will spend the rest of the week with us.
I think the main thing that helps me to move forward in life without her is that I know her life had such great purpose. My heart swells with such love for her when I look at what her life has meant to us and how it has touched so many people.

I still haven't read and of the letters to Finley. I will probably sit down this weekend and really let myself break down again. I can't believe how many people and the types of people who have sent me letters. It's just breathtaking

A few days ago we took some family pictures with my friend Kerri. It was such perfect timing (although I didn't think it was at the time) because I still have my hospital bracelets on. These pictures represent our whole family and I just love them

(sorry so big, I stole them from FB)

Love you girls!

the pics were amazing - i think my absolutely favorite is the feet pic...

i also think it is absolutely perfect that you have the hospital bands on - Finley is still here with you and always will be...
