Hannah's blood transfusion rejuvenated her to such a degree that it was almost possible to forget she was sick ... almost. There was a big reminder hanging over us, and that was her upcoming MRI.

Hannah was a very private person and gave us very few hints into what was going on in her mind during her cancer battle.

Do you remember being a child alone in your bedroom at night? I remember that I always had to sleep with my door open ... I felt so alone in the darkness if my door was shut. I think I found a lot of comfort in just hearing my parents' voices in the living room as I was drifting off to sleep. But what about those dark times in our lives when God se…

Hannah was a very private person, and always shunned the spotlight. At first, she didn't even want anyone to know that she had cancer, but understood that people needed to know so they could pray for her. She didn't want a CaringBridge site while she was battling cancer, but didn't mind me sending the emails which chronicled her journey. So it's in…

Early on after Hannah went to Heaven, I often heard other parents who had lost children talk about how much they worried about people forgetting about their children. And I remember thinking to myself that I would never be that way ... I certainly didn't want people to forget about Hannah, but for me personally, that was not a huge concern. I knew …

Several years ago, I spent a week sitting in school workshops.

Growing up with two brothers, I always I assumed I'd be a "boy mom". Ultrasounds were not nearly as detailed back in 1991 as they are today, so it was a surprise when the doctor exclaimed, "It's a girl!" ... and then another surprise 3 1/2 years later when Bethany was born. What a joy being a "girl mom" has turned out to be! Thank you for joining m…
