5 Year Anniversary

Tomorrow August 8, 2013 will mark the 5  year anniversary of what we call “the phone call” regarding to Brisan and Parker's Niemann-Pick Type C disease diagnosis.

It seems that every year is going faster and faster as we move further into the the upcoming years knowing that time isn't on their side. However, we do have some good things to celebrate and not to make this post all about being sad. We will be moving soon to a new home that will allow us some positive situations. The down side is we will be giving up other things like the boys' school teachers, nurses, and even friends we became close with. The whole situation seems to be showing much favor for us. Duncan will be starting Kindergarten here next week! Their new school seems to be really “going to work” for us already. I hope that they keep that level of excitement in the upcoming future.

Since March I had started a new opportunity and have been focusing on leveraging my skills to be a key contributor to my team. Everyday I look forward to bringing my “A” game and putting a positive stamp on it. We've not had any foster kids in our home since Memorial Day weekend. It has been very nice most of the time not to have that additional responsibility… at least that is how I feel :).  Jennifer has stayed pretty busy herself.

Woman Lends Hand In Tragedy | Stults Family

Last July 2010, my parents (Mike) helped organize a fundraiser for Brisan & Parker. During that time through mutual friends they were introduced to Hazel Kinder who lives in Columbia, MO. That is about 1-1.15 hrs from Kansas City. During the late 80's through the late 90's she lost 3 of her son's to Niemann-Pick Type C disease.

I can't imagine going through this whole situation during that time when the internet was just getting started and networking to find support with other families. We are thankful that she wanted to be apart of our story and journey.

KOMU.com out of Columbia, MO did a small story on the event.
