Two friends brought together by Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Erin and Rachel - THEN
Erin and Rachel - NOW
Yesterday during some quiet moments in the day I found myself browsing through our old videos and photos of the kids. It amazes me how much they have grown up. We waited for a long time to get kids from Heaven and then they decided that they all needed to come together in a whirlwind 34 months. Those earlier years when I had 3 babies is finally over. Now we have three little kids. It's so much fun on so many new levels. They can all talk and put on their own shoes, we haven't seen a diaper in this house for months now, and everyone sleeps through the night.
The last year has been a big blur for all of us. I happened upon some photos of Erin a month before we found out she had Acute Myeloid Leukemia (May 2010). You can see in her face, skin color, and bruising that she was really sick.
She is such a different looking person now.
I cannot believe how much she has changed.
Sometimes I look at her and I still see that little blonde fragile toddler, and it startles me to see this rambunctious energetic brown haired fireball girl.
