We have a big celebration coming up.
Two years since Abby joined our family.
I can hardly believe it's been that long.
She's made some huge strides, and we've made some huge strides as a family.
Frankly, it's still a learning game most days.
But, because God extends His grace every.single.day, we are truly, and amazingly FAMILY.
Not because a piece of paper says so, but because we're bonded the way family should be.
Just the other day my 15 year old said - "I cannot even imagine life without every one of us here." And I knew what he meant.
I can't either.
I still haven't decided exactly what we'll do to celebrate.
Almost half of us will be gone on a snowboarding trip on the actual day. But I will be here, and Abby will be here, and so I might make it a special JUST THE TWO OF US celebration. We never, EVER, do anything just the two of us, so I think that would make it pretty special.
I guess I'd better get planning. I have exactly one week.
