This has nothing (really) to do with Claire or our adoption.
I've been playing phone tag with an old friend for about a week now. Today we finally talked.
She gave me the heart wrenching news that she has been diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. She has been told she is going to be ok, but that the next 6 months or so are gonna suck. Radiation, chemo, more surgeries....
If you are the praying type - I'd love for you to pray that 'Kate's super awesome friend' is able to be strong and just get through this with dignity, grace, and just that she can be stronger than ever. I think we forget to pray for things like this until it hits our inner circle. And anyone doing the '3-day' can count on me for a donation of some kind when you walk in October. (for reals - email me)
Nobody deserves this - but seriously - it could not have happened to a better person.
Anyway- I'm abusing the fact that I have an audience here to ask for prayers. Sorry for it not being a Claire update, but we didn't have much news there to report anyway....
Thanks for reading, praying, sending positive thoughts!
