No this is not a Christmas post.
It has been a while since I posted. The last few months have been hard. Really hard. Also, I didn't exactly know how to follow up after such a heavy post. Things are starting to feel more "normal" around our house and I can say with experience now that what doesn't kill you does indeed make you stronger. Without our amazing friends and family I don't know that we could have made it through this. We really are so blessed.
