Where do we begin?

It may be best said of our experience as parents lately as Alfred Lord Tennyson said it, 
I hold it true, whate'er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
We don't know what the future holds we only know it may be different, and even if it will not be significantly different, we will go forward changed to the deepest parts.  

We thought about blogging for a long time, but usually decided that the challenges of balancing life with two children was enough for the time being.  It only took Kari about 8 months to feel like she could do the two child thing and feel like she actually had energy left at the end of the day!  Of course, you know what happens when you feel like you have things under control... (ought to have learned the lesson by now!).  We would like to keep everyone updated on Drew's condition so we will try to keep this current.  At the same time, we will try to share the smiles that enter our days as well.  We still have amazing joy and many laughs in the midst of this experience, and are so thankful for everyone and everything that has contributed to our sanity!  Thank you!  We love you all so very much, and even more we love and thank God for His peace and guidance throughout this.
