A blog about us. our lives. our struggles. our victories.

Rob and Anne-marie

“We often pray to be delivered from calamities; we even trust that we shall be; but we do not pray to be made what we should be, in the very presence of the calamities, to live amid them, as long as they last, in the consciousness that we are held and sheltered by the Lord […]

“Where do you want to put this?” Rob says as he removes the magnet from the ultrasound photo of our baby. “I don’t want to keep this on the fridge.” “Put it in my Bible,” I said. Rob thought to himself: “Yeah, that’s a good place for it. I want to keep it forever but […]

Have you ever felt the winds shift in your direction, in your favor and you think, “oh my gosh, it’s finally my turn, my time!” The winds changed for our family about a month ago when I got my first positive pregnancy test. Rob and I took a selfie with the tests to memorialize this […]

On December 12, 2019 I rolled up to the hospital, not ready and not completely willing, to check in for surgery. After being diagnosed with stage zero breast cancer in October, 2019, it felt like surgery was light years away, I even tried calling to move it up, but after Thanksgiving the date flew toward […]

I have been struggling with how to write this, what to say, what not to say and also how much to share. We share a lot. I feel like everyone who reads this knows everything about our story. But some things feel sacred or maybe I just want to keep the new harder things secret. […]

As 2018 winds down, Rob and I sat down to reflect what this past year has looked like. And more importantly, we wanted to document things we never want to forget from this past year. I’m not a scrapbooker, we rarely print pictures. Social media documents our progress and this blog knits the highs and […]

This blog is written by both Rob and Anne-Marie. Indented and italicized paragraphs are written by Rob.  We visited the Clinic for Special Children, in Lancaster, PA. There’s a reason we decided to come here, in the middle of Pennsylvania, Amish community. There’s a man here, Dr. Strauss, a world-renowned specialist in GA-1. He helped […]

You know what’s crazy about open cuts and wounds? They heal. We often say time heals all wounds but I tend to disagree with that statement. As a person who has had lots of wounds, other than just this massive physical wound that’s healed on top of my head, I think a more accurate statement […]

Ok, so I know the last blog was about making it to the mountain top, and yes, the metaphors that go along with that and our life are poignant, but it dawned on me, that mountains still have rocky terrain. You’ve got the view and perspective of where you’ve been when you get to the top, […]

Four years ago, if you told me that we’d travel to another country WITH Reagan, I’d say you’re crazy. But here we are, on top of mountains, doing things we never even dreamed our family could partake in. This trip is exceedingly, abundantly more, than we could have ever imagined. Guys, there’s snow, in JULY! […]
