We considered going last year to Virginia, but it was way too soon after Dan's diagnosis and we were still adjusting to g-tubes and meds and all sorts of things. We also didn't want to live out of a suitcase again. So we missed last year. We promised we would go this year - and we did!
Yes, Dan wasn't physically present in a recognizable form, but he was there. And all the other kids were too, unfortunately, way too many in spirit.
But we had a wonderful time. We met so many wonderful people!
Deanna Bourgeault, mom to Kaitlyn. This was at a NNPDF Board of Director's meeting at 7am! Yeah, we needed our coffee!
There were so many others!
