??? Questions ???

I'd like to offer you all the opportunity to ask questions. I know many of you have the same questions, or feel that this isn't the right place to ask them. If that's the case, feel free to email me the questions too at I'm a pretty open person, and this blog definitely has made me more open in some ways. But I am becoming more guarded in some respects - so please don't be offended if I do not post and answer one of your questions.

The only thing I ask is that you not ask me "Isn't there something they can do for Joshua? A surgical option since he's doing so well?" Yes, he is doing well. But, no, there is not a good surgical option. We have been offered a surgical option. No, it's not any good. No, I won't explain what they've offered. We have looked into a few options that have been sent to us by people, but so far they haven't resulted in anything positive.

But please, ask me whatever you like? It doesn't have to relate to Joshua, it doesn't have to be a strange question (though it can be). It can be in relation to our family, our work, our college experience. I don't mind. And I know you've got questions. So go ahead and ask.


  1. What is your favorite Disney movie? hee hee hee...I figured, since you said anyone can ask it is...I am sure you have probably seen your fair share,

  2. have you needed to explain Joshua's cele to Oceana? if so, how did you do it?

  3. I have followed your story for somtime now and pray for your family daily...but mostly for you, because Im a Mom, and well, I just know (actually, I don't know, and I don't want to know, but I guess I can just imagine). I'm not exactly sure how to ask my question, but here goes...What happens as Joshua continues to grow & age. I mean I realize that "they" don't forsee that happening, but it appears to me that he's already defying the odds (what a miracle he is!). Anyway, let's just say he's older and starts to become mobile, etc. What happens? Maybe I'm being super naive and extra hopeful for you, but he seems to already be such a miracle that I can't imagine he won't continue to be. I'm sorry if this question isn't worded right...

  4. what is your best memory from the pregnancy with Joshua?

    Who is your favorite band/artist?

    What is your favorite movie?

    What (apart from family and friends) do you miss most from US?

    Do they have Vegemite in NZ? and if so, do you like it?
