I really just want to say thanks. I don't know if anyone will ever understand how grateful I am at this time in my life. I want to say thanks to those wonderful people who volunteer their time everyday to watch my sweet baby boy. I know it's not easy watching someone else's 5 month old who is teething and occasionally cranky. Thank you Jones family (especially Aunt Heather), Lori, the Westovers, Grandma and Grandpa Stailey, the Green's, Mindy, Brittany Bezzant, Emily Fisher and Rachel Hudson (and your roomies too!!) I can't express how grateful I am that I can go to work knowing he is with someone who loves him and will do everything they can to care for him. It breaks my heart to leave him but you have made it a little easier. Thanks.

I need to say thanks to our family. We struggle and you are always there to help us where ever we need it. You put up with delinquent phone payments and late night computer emergencies. You put up with our dog...and that's saying a lot:) Thanks for helping us go on vacations that we could never afford. Thanks for the innumerable acts of kindness, we love you.

I want to express my gratitude for and to our friends. Not only have you got us through the hard times but you have created some of the best for us. Not only were you there for us in the early years but it is you, friends, who introduced us to one another and made this journey possible. Thanks for the late night talks, the game nights, the dinner parties, the softball games and the countless birthday celebrations. Thanks for teaching me to love another's family as much as my own. Thanks for teaching me that service is one of the most rewarding opportunities I'll ever come by. You are amazing and I want the very best for each and every one of you. I think of you often, from those grade school friends to the recent softball team friends and I enjoy the time my family spends with yours.

I know that a simple thank you is not near enough, and hopefully in time I'll be able to give something back to all who have given us so much. I just want you to know you are loved and I appreciate all you do for me. The world would not be the same without each one of you.

I was just wondering, I noticed Caitlin Ellingson's blog on your blog roll and would love to contact her for permissions, would you mind asking her for me or getting me her e-mail address? My e-mail is
