I am sure that most of us do not give thanks for all our blessings on a regular basis but for some reason today, Thanksgiving Day people take a moment to stop and think and give thanks. I have so much to be thankful for. A loving husband who supports me and is my rock with Brooklyn, a mother who spends her days full time making sure Brooklyn is well cared for, encouraged, and pushed to do her best daily, a sister who is a loving aunt to Brooklyn & would do anything for her (and me!) and who has the sweetest son that makes it his mission to make Brooklyn giggle whenever they are together. A father who can make Brooklyn smile just with the mention of his name, a school full of teachers, aides and therapists that adore my daughter and see her potential instead of her disability, and friends (near & far) that make me laugh when I need it the most and allow me to cry when I just can't hold it in anymore. My online friends nationwide who provide me with my daily smiles and inspiration, fellow Rett moms (some of whom have quickly become my dearest friends) there are not words of thanks great enough for you - we were unfortunate to have to meet but without you I would be lost: your advice, support, and strength keep me going. My church family and friends for your constant prayers for Brooklyn and my family without God's intervention in my life there would be no hope. For the researchers that spend their days hard at work searching for treatments towards a cure for Rett Syndrome, without you my future would seem dark. My boss who gave me the best job in the world - the ability to be home with my daughter and work full time funding research that might one day lead to a cure. The amazing Trine college girls (you know who you are) that babysit Brooklyn so that Charlie and I can get an occasional (and much needed) night out. The doctors both here locally and across this nation that help Brooklyn when I need them most and list goes on and on. To all of you.......thanks!
