I was planning on documenting our sweet girls' third birthday celebrations long ago, but I have gone silent.  I am silent because there is too much to write about.  (Therefore I may never catch up.)  I am silent because many of the things to write about are stressful.  And because I am spending my days between two homes, not really keeping up with all of the "normal" things.

Some months ago, we put Lana's name on a waiting list for inpatient therapy.  At the time, we didn't know if we'd actually go through with it, but the list was months long.  We wanted to have a spot just in case.  Last month her name came up.  After agonizing over the decision, we decided to put her in the program.  She went in on March 30th.

Our family has been divided for 11 days, and it is one of the hardest things I have ever done.  We would love to have your prayers for Lana and the rest of us.


I will write more later.  For now, here's a happy thought.  My brother Jordan plays the ocarina, and has posted a few videos on YouTube.   He taught himself, and really does some amazing things with the ocarina (like harmony).  You can watch here and here.
