Today marks the one year anniversary of the start of this blog. When I began I didn't know if I would like it or how long it would last. I started the blog as a way to keep friends and family up to date about Bennett's progress. I also knew that it would provide a way of journaling that would let me mark the milestones in Bennett's life.
I must say that I have really enjoyed doing the blog and I have really enjoyed reading and hearing the comments whether they appear online or by email, phone or in person. They have been such an incredible source of love and support for my entire family. Through this blog I have made many online friendships. I've become "addicted" to their blogs as I follow along with their lives and the wonderful accomplishments of their children.
I have every intention of continuing with the blog as I have a lot to say and Bennett has a lot to do! I hope all of you will keep reading and commenting. I hope that any new readers will find our story interesting as well as a source of hope. As I said in my first post, blogs are where I first found hope after Bennett's diagnosis. That was such a dark time in our lives but we have certainly learned that not only does life go on, it can be wonderful again.
