Yesterday Dana graduated from nursery - big girl making us all proud!

My parents arrived from Montreal to be there, Brandon's parents were there as well.

But most meaningful of all was Dana's daddy - crouching in front of the front row, taking pictures of his daughter and smiling with pure joy as she sang "These are the People in my Family".

It's been almost 6 months since Brandon was diagnosed with Leukemia. At the time (and for quite some time after that) we had no idea what the future would look like. Truth be told, we had no concept of what "future" actually meant.

So to be here today, at this monumental occasion, is breathtaking!

Brandon is stronger every day, he is taking care of us, he is playing with the kids, we are out on dates, he is enjoying friends and family...

And he is cancer-free.
And the future is bright.

And this is one of the many momentous occasions that we will celebrate a family.

  1. What a great occassion for the family to gather.
    I am sure Brandon was the proudest daddy there - to see his princess graduate.
    So happy to hear these stories and share in the joy.
