Chosen Family

Chosen Family.

Please check out this great story that my wife posted on her blog (

Since my wife and I both work, ever since our son was born we have had a young Mennonite girl watch our son during the day. Unfortunately Ms. Megan is leaving us for Iowa. She and her family have been a huge part of our lives, and we are extremely thankful for their love and the wonderful impact that they have made on our son. Luckily, Ms. Megan’s mother, Anita, has agreed to continue watching our son, but Ms. Megan will be missed very much!
It is amazing how people who were once strangers can become so intertwined in our lives, that they become family to us, and impact our lives in ways that we could never have expected.

Not to be too cliche, but when we have a village, our lives are all the richer!

    This is so beautiful. People come into our lives for a reason, and she has clearly touched yours.

    Yes, I agree, we ARE richer for the village. And I’m sorry you’re losing Ms. Megan. 😦

    I agree, they say it takes a village to raise a child. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking some of my posts.
