you only get back what you give....and you two have given and given over the years... people are just trying to say thank you any way they can and trying to let you know how much they love your family.
big ♥s to you guys!

What a great post. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I just wanted to say that we love Amber. I am so glad to have met her through taking classes with Debbie. She is so amazing. Anyway, I'll have to get your number from her and talk to you. I would love to hear about things you did that worked well for you as you raised her. Or maybe things you would have done different. We are going to mainstream Jack too. Anyway, I'm glad we are getting to know her She's great. By the way, I love your towels you made in the post below too. Those are darling.
