Seattle Bound-Take Two!

Firstly, thank you so much for all of your love and support and prayers! We know that we are remembered every night in prayer from the lips of the young to the old. It is still an amazing and humbling realization that we are held close in many people's hearts and that our struggle has not been forgotten. 

An update has been long overdue so thank you for your patience as we took time to sort out the details regarding our return to Seattle. We have an appointment scheduled for September 22nd but we are looking to go much sooner so that we can avoid any setbacks here with Ava getting sick or, worse, having another GVHD episode. With that in mind, we are looking to head out after she is evaluated at Lurie's for any evidence of chronic GVH. This should be completed in the next week or so (hopefully) and then we will be able to make more solid plans for Seattle. 

Due to cost and other considerations, we are still weighing out whether we will drive or fly to Seattle. Both have their pros and cons and we are continuing to seek guidance and clarity from the Lord. Thank you for praying with us that we would follow His steps in the big decisions as well as the seemingly small ones. 

The days have been long and sweet and we savor each moment we have with the kids. There is a bittersweet quality to it...wishing the days would slow down but thankful for each day that passes with us all together.

It is absolutely necessary to have your ID on at all times in this home because mama done lost her mind most days.

"Mama, take a picture of Jude holding my finger...and send it to my iPod." (Girlfriend, when I was growing up, the only way to capture a moment was to close my eyes and file it away in my brain.)

Just a girl and her dog.

Jude chattin it up with Ha-lah-buh-jee (grandpa in Korean.)

Gwen still fits in her 18 month Halloween costume. Recently her 4 year old checkup revealed that she was in the 1% for height...why even tell me that, doctor?

It was so nice to see Ava on Facebook laughing as you stroked her hair. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers every day! Stay strong….God is with you.
