New Home

We moved in to the Parker-Reese house tonight (www.theparkerreesefoundation.com). Brad & Kellie (another family living here) and Jes & Ashley, who began the foundation, were here to greet us. It is very peaceful and quiet out here in the country. The house is great, thoughtfully decorated with photos of CDH babies and little reminders to be hopeful. 

We can't imagine how much harder this experience would be if we didn't have the Parker-Reese house to call home for this next phase of the journey. We are still blown away by our good fortune in finding this place. It was hard to leave home, and nothing about dealing with CDH is ideal, but in so many ways we are still lucky.

I love you so much Linds! Michael and Davis too. I'm glad you like where you'll be living for a little bit and I hope I'll be able to visit you there soon. Call me if you ever need anything, even just to talk. Stay positive because everything is going to be fine! - Kaitlin
