Article

For several months now, we have had the pleasure of talking about our story with a young journalist.  She heard about it through a friend of ours she worked with and got our contact information.  "A" is in a journalism master's program and originally interviewed us for an article she wrote for a class.  Now, she is doing an internship at CNS and called us for permission to write our story again...this time with a different focus. 

After lots of emails and phone calls, the final article was sent "out on the wire" (that's newspaper-speak for ready for publication...aren't I fancy?!) and to our surprise, it was picked up by Fox news!  Here is the link:

Our sole reason for agreeing to the article was that we would be able to share the miracles God has performed in Abby's life and point others to Christ.  We hope that if you have found the blog after reading the article, you will take a minute to read about what God has done in Abby's life and in ours.  We strive to be transparent and to let you know that we don't have it all together, we don't have all of the answers, and we don't know what the future holds for our family...but God does.  Through Abby's life, God has blessed us in ways we couldn't have imagined and sent our lives on a totally new path!  We hope that you find our blog an encouragement and we would love to hear from you!

Hi,
I did find your blog after I read the article. I was just so amazed by the way you have handled all that God has put before you. He truly does give the Grace that we need, doesn't He?
When I started reading, the first thing I noticed was that you like a lot of the same music as I do! You are a wonderful family and you are in my prayers. I have your blog in my favorites and will be checking in regularly.
We are a homeschooling family here in Maryland and I love blogging and meeting new people this way!
God Bless!
