You never know what challenges you are going to face in life. Sometimes life can take an unexpected turn and everything changes from that point on. It's not always so much about the challenges, but more about how you handle them.
We have 4 kids. We have Dylan and Abbie and then SURPRISE, we have twins Caleb and Faith. Went from 2 to 4 with one pregnancy. We couldn't have been happier. We love having 4 kids and we love having twins.
When Faith was 3 she got very sick and was in the hospital. The doctors couldn't figure out what was wrong with her. Soon after, she got better and all was great. Then at age 4 she was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. It changed everything for us. We spendt days and weeks in the hospital with her. It affected our whole family.
Now, almost 5 years later, she's happy and healthy. She will always have Crohn's Disease but we've learned a lot of great life lessons during this process. We appreciate the days when she's happy and healthy so much more. And we have so much more compassion for others who are going through the same or anything similar.
