This week, our well visit led to Kelsey conversing with our doctor about how she hopes to be a professional basketball player and a doctor when she grows up. We always encourage our daughter to dream big and hope she always aspires to do so.
Anyone who couples a headband tiara with a dry fit basketball tee deserves to follow her dreams. Right?!
We smile and laugh as we dream of the future for our children, with our children.
Then we reflect on recent news and feel it hard to process reality sometimes for those challenged by Kelsey’s disease. We learned about another patient whose marrow transplant donor backed out. We are hit hard with that reality. We pray for that family and hold on tight to our hope for our daughter and all the other children we know who suffer.
Another family reached out to ask us about their challenges to discuss treatment options. We try to stick together because learning from others gives us strength and comfort. We pray for our friends near and far and wish them well in their treatment plans as limited options exist right now.
We send positive vibes to anyone who struggles to dream big today, and we continue to hope that someday all of our children’s dreams will come true.
