This was quite a year! We started out the year with the best news learning I was pregnant, felt the greatest joy as we welcomed Mackenzie into our family, and then received the heartbreaking news that she too had Cystic Fibrosis. It has been a year of extreme emotions…from excitement, great anticipation, and overwhelming love and joy, to deep sadness and hurt, disbelief and anger. I am most thankful for the precious and beautiful new life this year has brought to our family. I pray that the joyful times with my girls will continue to overshadow the feelings of despair associated with the burden of their disease. And I hope that I will always be able to see the Lord’s goodness shining through, even on the hardest days. Thanks to everyone who has supported and encouraged us this year! Here’s to 2016!
