CYG – Day 9: Family
My family has changed considerably from a year ago, from two years ago. We have welcomed another little boy, which amazes me. I never thought I would have one son, never mind two. We have added two new little kitties to our zoo, which has been a huge breath of fresh air. We are now part of the Greg Hill family, such an amazing group of people that take care of each other. We have so many new friends that we consider family. We are truly lucky.
What’s stayed the same are our friends, our amazing, faithful friends that have embraced us and taken care of us since everything first happened. They are a huge part of our family. I don’t know where we be without these people. The extended family members that constantly email, text and call us to check in have been amazing. We are so blessed.
We’ve lost a few members of our family too. Some friends have disappeared and I’m working on being ok with that. Two weeks ago we had to make the decision to put our dog, Bailey down. I’ve been with her longer than I’ve been with Parker. It was a heart breaking decision to make and it’s been really hard not having her around. It was the first big change to the family due to death since Benny. It was hard to watch Darcy cope through loss again.
