I haven’t had time to respond to the huge outpouring of support, words of encouragement and beautiful notes of love that we have been getting daily from all of you. Some of your messages have made us laugh. Some have brought (even more) tears to our eyes. Some of you have shared your own stories of battles that have been fought and won. Some have lifted our spirits with words of faith and spirituality. You have all offered physical and emotional comfort that is helping us through this roller coaster ride that has become our new reality. We really can’t thank you enough for opening up your hearts to us and embracing our struggles as your own. It’s true what they say about communities coming together in times of trouble – we never realized just how wide our circle could get in our time of need. So many of you have also reached out to your own family and friends with Addison’s story. I think it’s fair to say there are people all around the world who have been praying and sending positive thoughts our way. Using the ‘m’ word is so cliche, but this will probably be the closest thing to a miracle I will experience in my lifetime. Addison’s road to recovery is far from over and this has changed her life and our lives forever, but she is well on her way.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
(This is where I plan to post comments from all of those who have emailed such words of encouragement.)
