Fraudulent People


I regrettably need to make this post. I was just made aware that someone out there is claiming to be Taylor's mom and asking for a "free" puppy to give to Taylor. This is NOT true. If you ever have someone contact you claiming to be one of us, and asking for money or free stuff, please decline and let us know. We are not asking for anything, we were able to complete Taylor's wish list when we received a devastating prognosis in September 2010. Since that time we received a miracle, which I know we strongly believe is related to all of you who sent prayers, hopes and wishes for Taylor. Taylor has been clear for quite some time, so there is no reason that anyone should be requesting money, or free items for Taylor!

My request for Taylor is only that you continue your prayers, wishes and hopes for her, we need to keep her clear. She is now on a 6 month MRI schedule, which is a blessing. Thank you all for the support you have given us, it IS what kept us going in our darkest times, it kept a light for us to reach for when it sometimes felt like we might be overcome, you helped us keep HOPE alive.

Taylor looooves to swing!

Taylor is not just a slurpee monster, but an ice cream monster too

Taylor now can ride a bike, she can skate too!
Taylor's Auntie Leah
she is still as gorgeous as ever, and has hair.LOL Though she's beautiful without too.

Taylor is FOUR!!!!

Well today marks Taylor's fourth birthday! It seems so long ago, but then so short all at the same time. I remember speeding to the hospital when I got the call that Mindy was "in labour", than laughing at myself as I neared the hospital as I recalled that this usually takes awhile.LOL....of course it did! I was so excited, my baby sister was having her first baby.

It was one of the most amazing nights/days of my life, watching my niece Taylor being born. During Mindy's entire pregnancy I never thought once that something might be the matter with her baby, generally you have a sense, but I can't say, no matter how in tune I feel I am to Mindy that I felt any misgivings.

Everything in the hospital labour room seemed to be going just fine, sure there were things, just nothing out of the ordinary. When Taylor came out I remember my sense of elation and awe, then thinking "Holy crap, she looks just like Landon." LOL I just kept watching though, back and forth from Mindy, to the Doctor, to Mindy and then I saw Mindy realize something was wrong, I can still feel my heartbreaking watching her, I can see her face.

Then the battle raged...

Taylor has fought and won so many battles for a four year old, too many, but she has won, she has defied odds. I feel so blessed to have such an amazing little ray of hope in my life.

Happy Birthday Taylor, Auntie loves you, we all love you!
