National Siblings Day
Paul and I weren’t the only ones affected by Shane’s diagnosis. Chase (6) and Ella (3) have had their lives changed forever and they don’t even know or understand it completely yet. When we found out I was pregnant, Chase knew it was a boy and affectionately called him “razor mouth” after a shark. Hence, the nursery is beach themed. Unfortunately, that nickname got replaced by “Shane the brain” via Ella and “Jar Jar” from our Star Wars obsessed Chase.
All I ever wanted was a family where my children loved and cheered each other on, no matter what life threw at them. So far, so good.
