John was born on January 16, 2002. It has been a wild ride since then.

or here to see the meager beginnings of my description of our journey with this very special child.

I hope to add more of the story each day. I admit that I am writing this partly because doing so is therapeutic. And partly because it may make it easier for people to understand where we are.

News flash! John came home from the hospital on Tuesday evening, January 29. We are rejoicing. Now that we are back to full-time care for John and the other children, it may be more difficult to write here during the next few days.
