Frustrated Year

Our family has had such a long frustrating year. It started first with our son Seth(7) being diagonsed with Autism. We knew he had meltdowns and lots of frustration but until we heard the words Autism we didn’t want to believe it. Shortly, later my mother-in-law who we had no idea had medical problems fell at work and within two days we were told that she had a brain tumor and two tumors in her kidneys. She was diagonsed with cancer and given 6 months to live, we had no idea. She had to move in with us and our children had to watch her get sick, have a stroke and receive Hospice Care. She only made it two short months. Just when we finally thought we were going to start getting our lives back to normal and have some fun our lives changed again. Our five year old was diagonsed with two auto-immune diseases. I am not sure why our family has had so many struggles this year, but I do know we are getting through it one day at a time. We haven’t had a family vacation in years and with many medical bills it is tough to get out to do fun things. It is sad but this year a lot of our quality family time has been spent with doctors. Our family is much in need to just spend some family time together not worrying about anything. This adventure would mean the world to us. Thank you.
