Happy Anniversary Chase Angelo
As the saying goes, time heals all wounds and it's certainly taking away some of the pain; however, the wounds still seem so "fresh and deep" - - it's just really hard to believe sometimes everything that took place.
Fortunately, Barbara seems to be doing well adjusting, although she continues making references to missing her brother. The other day, in one of her school exercises designed to stimulate creativity, she was asked to complete the sentence "I wish..." and she wrote, "I could go back in time 3 years so I could talk to my brother, Chase." I guess it seems that long for a 9 year old, when a huge percentage of her life was spent witnessing her brother's illness.
Anyhow, it's great that she can at least express herself and work through the grieving process... that's been a real focus of her art therapy for the past year and she seems to have really benefited from it.
Thanks to all Chase's Prayer Warriors for the prayers and support! It has meant the world to us!! Despite everything, it's nice having a little Angel shining down upon us...
