Meet Mommy & Daddy's dear friend, Shannon! Daddy grew up with her, and she is 33 years old and battling brain cancer. Right now she is recovering from a brain surgery where the doctors were able to remove a tumor the size of a racquetball. Unfortunately, there are still more smaller tumors remaining and as you can imagine, medical costs add up quickly. So we drove down to South Carolina this weekend to attend a HUGE auction/fundraiser that Daddy & Shannon's hometown threw to help the Dodd's. Our family was so excited to see Shannon again, and Shannon was excited to see me, too!

Here's the rest of Shannon's family! Every night before bedtime, our family prays for Shannon, Tom, Jakob and Tae. (who are also adopted like me!) We don't understand why in God's providence this precious family has been so afflicted, but we trust Him and beg Him to bring healing. Won't you join in praying with us?

Nanny & Papa, I had a fantastic weekend at your house! Happy 54th anniversary!

See ya again real soon!

  2. Marc & Amy - I was readying your blog this evening & Emelia came over wanting to know what I was reading while I was at the top picture of Marc, Caroline & Shannon. Emelia right away said "Mama, I like that lady! (Pointing to Shannon) Who is she? She must be very nice! I think I want her to be my friend!" I told her what I was reading and how Shannon was a little sick...she immediately said "Mama, lets pray for her." Ok, I said we will. "No mama, right now." So, just let Shannon know she has a little prayer warrior in Emelia.
