What we're thankful for.

We have a lot to give thanks for this year.

We are thankful for Sadie's doctors who monitor her condition closely and take such great care of her.

We are thankful for all of the nurses who care for Sadie, both in the doctors' offices and the hospital.

We are thankful for Sadie's therapists who put in hours every week to help Sadie develop.

We are thankful to everyone who has given to Sadie's special needs trust. Your generosity is overwhelming.

We are thankful to have connected with such a wonderful group of parents through the Aicardi Foundation. Your guidance and support has been invaluable.

We are thankful to be close to friends and family who have reached out and offered support. Particularly Sadie's godmother who also serves as our fairy godmother :).

We are thankful to have a loving, strong marriage that will endure whatever comes our way.

We're thankful for YOU. Everyone reading this blog and following along with Sadie's Journey. Whether you are a close friend or family or whether we have never met. It means the world that you are following along, saying prayers, lighting candles, keeping Sadie in your thoughts.

But most of all, we're thankful to have a beautiful little girl who has changed our lives for the better, who teaches us never to take anything for granted, and who has made us better people.


  1. "For flowers that bloom about our feet;
    For tender grass, so fresh, so sweet;
    For song of bird, and hum of bee;
    For all things fair we hear or see,
    Father in heaven, we thank Thee!"
    ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Happy 1st Thanksgiving, Sadie..gobble, gobble! May you guys have a wonderful holiday filled with flowing gravy, contagious laughter, loving family & friends (oh, and pumpkin pie)!
