Dear Fellow Members of the Class of 2004,
2018 has brought a whirlwind of change for our family! We both began new and challenging jobs and we also welcomed our beautiful, energetic, determined, and focused daughter into the world last fall. Now, as she approaches completing her first trip around the Sun, we have seen her grow over six inches and triple her weight. She learns new things at a seemingly incredible rate. What was once impossible for her in one week often becomes routine in the next. As fun as it is to watch her grow it also requires us to constantly adapt to a rapidly changing life, a life which requires intense supervision, new ways of thinking to accomplish important goals, improvisation, and a dedicated team of loving people to support each other. Thankfully, we have been blessed to have the love and support of so many incredible people to help us through this journey. It has also been challenging for us to ask or even accept offered help when we used to be the ones who would offer our help to others. It can be humbling, sometimes even a little embarrassing, to admit when we need the support of friends and family.
