This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

A Special Post

Yes this is my 300th post! I just wanted to get on here briefly and bring all of my readers' attention to the sad disease of Alzheimers.

My grandfather Joseph Lazzaro suffered his last years becoming more and more debilitated by Alzheimers, eventually ending in his death several years ago. He was incoherent, couldn't talk, couldn't stand or walk, and couldn't feed himself or take a drink.

Nick's grandmother Ella White was also stricken with the disease and was bedridden for many years before she passed away. She had to be fed, changed, and repositioned by family caretakers the last 4 years of her life with only an occasional moment of clarity and speech.

Please click here and donate ANY amount toward the research for this devastating disease and a cure. Nick, Brad, and I are participating in a charity walk on Saturday morning in OKC as part of our support for this organization. Every little bit helps!!
