Thirty years later

Oh my Lord, this has been such a hard season. The anniversary has come and gone now. Thirty whole years. The remembrance service was beautiful and there were so many wonderful people there. Dear, dear friends, most of them gifts from Michaela, who I don't see nearly often enough. There were two people there who... Continue Reading →

I’m a survivor!

I was telling my friend a few days ago about how we sometimes wake up one day, and we are a new person. Something subtle has shifted within us, and we feel completely different than we did before. I experienced this today. If you've read this blog for awhile, you know that breast cancer has... Continue Reading →

Loss in the shadows

With honestly just a few clicks you can scroll back through my blogs to my very first entry, on August 11, 2009. Then just over two weeks later,... Continue Reading →

But for the last few months I have been trudging through the deepest darkness. I've had my daughter kidnapped. I've had my mother die. I've... Continue Reading →

How you can help

Between the approaching 30th anniversary of Michaela's kidnapping, and the recent removal of all our ribbons from "Michaela's tree," I have been creating new flyers and buttons, and hanging new ribbons. I went to the market yesterday and was really happy to see that a number of people had actually already been there, hanging new... Continue Reading →

The naked tree

In my last blog entry I posted a lot of pictures of "Michaela's tree," with years and years of ribbons hanging from it. Then later that day I got this text message from a friend of Michaela's. I was shocked to see this tree standing there with every trace of all the love we had... Continue Reading →
