As we sit together, looking back as many families do at the beginning of a new year, we find ourselves collectively grateful for the fact that we are back together as a family, as the road that has brought us to current day has indeed been treacherous, but that has managed to help each of us grow a greater appreciation for one another, as individuals and a family.
Granted, living in a converted school bus is not the simplest of undertakings, but we do manage, and all unanimously agree that whatever minor inconveniences the size our current living quarters may pose, they are a very insignificant by comparison to our shared desire to be allowed to live in peace as a family.
Our daughter Jessica probably said it best when asked if she thought our living conditions were unacceptable or unbearable, "No, not at all, as many do not even have what we do, they either live under a bridge, or in a sidewalk doorway, homeless shelters, and some even in the woods, having no place to call home at all."
Change...It Can Be A Positive Thing.
Some of you will immediately notice that our website is currently undergoing some rather radical changes, and we feel these changes are for the better, as while it has been stated by several key persons that our case with the Texas Department of Family Protective Services (DFPS) is to be dismissed on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, we tend to reserve a degree of skepticism
Besides, our issues involving DFPS are but only a single chapter in a larger book, and seeing as so many have made it a point to remain abreast of developments and follow along with us on this journey, we feel it only right to allow those same people to continue to follow along as we face other threats to our family's unity.
