Four Score and Seven Years Ago

Well, OK, maybe just five years ago, but I always wanted to write that. Anyway, five years ago at this time we were sitting at Columbus Children's after having just received Finn's leukemia diagnosis.

And now here I sit, five years later, grateful that tonight Finn talked so much that I had to tell him it was nighttime and it was time to stop talking. I might have felt a little guilty, too.

I look back at pictures of that time, and really, any pictures between Christmas '03 and April 7, 2004, just make me incredibly sad.

I'm glad I have stuff like this to look at now:

My first glimpse of Finn was the one where he had a cowboy hat on. You had it on the Caringbridge page. I fell in love with him then, and still he holds fast to my heart.

Oh, what agony. And now, what mischief!

Blessings beyond understanding.

Finn and family,

We celebrate this moment with you and look forward to many, many more postings just like this one in the years to come.

YOU ROCK, FINN!
