Happy Friday!!

Happy friday everyone!
We are looking forward to a beautiful weekend. It is finally going to be warm for more than one day, and I may actually be out of the office to enjoy it!
Cheryl is also coming in on a suprise last minute trip and we are hoping to get to spend a little time with her.

Life is good in our house. Abby is discovering new things every day and she is getting more and more alert, we also are getting the beginnings of a giggle out of her, I can't wait till it turns into a full blown laugh.

Work is going great for me, really busy but good. It is tough being away from Abby and Donnie all day but it is made easier by the fact that I truly enjoy my job and what I do every day.

Donnie is still looking, he has gotten one bite and we are hoping that it will come through becasue it would be a great opportunity. The Appeal got pushed back to May 6th which stinks but I am hoping that everything will work out and we will start getting some unemployment benefits and maybe start having a little money for extras again.

Other than that things are just going along, life is happening and we are along for the ride. I have begun to put more and more of my faith in God and that the path he is leading us down is the right one and that we are going this way for a reason. They always say when he closes one door he opens a window; hopefully that window will get opened soon.
We are lucky to have such a wonderful supportive family to get through this time. It really helps to know that there are people out there praying for us and backing us every step of the way.

On top of that and speaking of prayer. At the top of our blog there is an icon to pray for a little boy named Stellan. I have been, with about a million other people, following his story the last few weeks and things are not going well. He is very sick and the options that he has for care are becoming limited due to him only being 5 months old. So please say a little prayer for his family as well that they will find the strength to get through this and for little Stellan that his amazing medical team in Boston will be able to help him and get him home to his Dad and Brothers and Sister.

That is all for now, I will try and take some pictures this weekend of Abby's first trip to the park and our visit with Cheryl.

Love to everyone,
Christie, Donnie and Abby
