S: Two People Fell In Love 2008-2009
FC: All because two people fell in love...
1: This is our story... | Once upon a time there were two young-at-heart singles, one man and one woman. They each had their share of heartache and loneliness and believed that one day God would provide them true love and happiness. It just so happened that these two lonely souls lived but five miles from each other but never the chance meeting. An internet connection would spark the flame that became a whirlwind of love, joy and happiness. Daddy and Mommy were these two people, wanting a partner and a friend to travel the trials of life with. Daddy had Adaleigh and Mommy had her three; Colby, Kevin, and Katie. You all fit so perfectly together, just as we did. We started a new family. These books hold the pictures of our journey, our hearts hold the memories.

15: Daddy's Lil' Pumpkin | "Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express." ~Joseph Addison

27: After SIX hours of Christmas shopping we returned home, exhausted. Then, I hear, "What's this on the tree?" A little annoyed, I say, "What? What's wrong? What are you talking about?" and then enter the living room to Bradley on bended knee and a beautiful sparkly diamond ring awaiting me on the tree.

34: SELF-PORTRAITS BY COLBY
35: SERIOUS TUNE-UP NEEDED | After our normal three month check-up we learned that Colby had grown Cepacia in his throat culture and would need assistance to immediately irradicate it. This germ can add serious complications or, worse, could initiate a steep decline in health. Scared, confused and worried, we booked Colby in and braced for the worst. After 21 days in the hospital and a quick bronchioschope, we cleared it, for now. Testing to continue for a year to confirm our victory.

99: Christmas | Just to close our eyes and pretend it was only a nightmare... Christmas day was most unbearable. The stockings were hung, the tree was lit and presents neatly awaiting the children, but our hearts were too broken. We missed our little girl, our Adaleigh, and it was not a celebration without her. No pictures of Christmas morning were taken, no big holiday dinner...just us, in our grief and our tears.
