Getting back to driving......

Just wanted to let everyone know that Jordan officially started driver's training this week! She will take at least 10 hours of training before she is cut loose!  She is so excited & nervous about being back on the road and she can't wait to have this part of her independence back!!  I hope my nerves handle this better than when she was 16!

Angels among us.....

When this journey started in May 2012 we knew that we wouldn't be able to do it without the help of family, friends, acquaintances, and complete strangers.  There have been times during the last 17months that we could not have made it without that help.  Today I want to say thank you to EVERYONE that has helped us either by prayer, food, emotionally, and financially.  All of your help has allowed us to keep our focus on Jordan. As we begin down another path of this Journey I was reminded yesterday that people cross our paths for a reason. I want to thank that special person that crossed my path yesterday via a mutual friend  for a wonderful gift to our family!
 Boston is getting closer by the day and we can't wait to get there to start the next part of Jordan's Journey. Please continue to keep Jordan & our family in your prayers.  PRAY FOR JORDAN

Finally has the Prism!!!

With everything going on I totally forgot about posting an update about the eyes!  On the 7th Jordan saw Dr. Bradley and her new glasses were fitted with a prism! Unlike most prisms this is just fitted over her lens and in her words "this makes it MUCH MUCH better"! Below is a picture of her with her new specs and she also wanted me to post a picture of her scar(17months post op)  They took some adjusting to but she seems to be doing great with them!  She is also  looking forward to seeing Dr. Stephens in November to see what she recommends.
