Yes, it has been months since I’ve written anything. For those of you that actually look forward to my blog posts, I apologize. My family has had to pull together during a really difficult time to help take care of the most beautiful girl on the planet, my niece. Without going into too much detail, I will say that Stevie has had ongoing health problems for the last year and a half. Now five years old, things have become even more challenging. I wish I had words to express my feelings… my feelings for how much I love her and how I would give anything to make her well again, my feelings for my sister (Stevie’s mom) who is honest to God the strongest person I have ever known and the feelings I have for my husband and stepdaughter who would do anything to be there for this family.
I will be posting a video within the next few weeks that tells you a little bit about Stevie and asks for your help financially. Stevie’s hypothalamus in her brain does not function correctly and funds are needed to try treatments and get through the medical costs that are beyond enormous.
This is a photo Rob took of Stevie at her fifth birthday party in September. Doesn’t she have the most edible face you’ve ever seen?
