Moving/New Town Blues
This is my uncle (mom's brother), aunt and their grandson whom they are raising. My uncle has been a huge part of my life since the day I was born. He has spoiled me since I was little and I know that he would do anything in the world for me. He married Diane in 2006 and she is the sweetest, kindest person you will ever know.
This is Dalyn's mom and dad. I can't begin to say enough about them. I married into the absolute most amazing family ever. I thank God everyday that he gave me such a wonderful family to be a part of. They accepted me from day one and treat me as their real daughter. They give us more unconditional support and love than two people could ask for.
This is Ashley and Tony. Our most nearest and dearest bestest of friends. Our friendship came about in a very round about way but has been an amazing, fun filled one for the last 7 years!! A interested fact about us is that since we've been best friends we've never lived in the same city. We have such an amazing friendship that we make it happen to see each other. Rarely a day goes by that I don't talk to Ashley. This is also Reeslyn, Ashley and Tony's daughter, she is almost 9 mos old and has been an absolute light of our lives for the last 9 mos. I love her like she is one of my own and can't wait to watch her grow up in the coming years. **She's also patiently waiting a playmate from Uncle Dalyn and Aunt Jess :-) **
This is Jonathan, Casey and Liam. (Their daughter Nora to come later) We've known them for a little over a year but feel like its been years. They are truly a God sent in our lives and we love them so dearly. We met them in Knoxville and say their part of the reason why we love Knoxville so much! They truly are the type of people/friends who come along very rarely.
This is Nora (Jonathan and Casey's daughter) and Amy (Jonathan's sister). I can't begin to tell you what a little joy Nora is. She is at that age where she is so much fun to be around and makes to laugh at almost everything. Nora was my saving light at times over the past few year. Sometimes if I was having a hard infertility day just being around Nora would make it all go away. I've known Amy for a little less than a year but am so happy she became a part of my life. Becoming such good friends with Amy came so easy, she's such an amazing person and so delightful to be around.
This is Brad and Cassie. I could go on and on about the history with them but I'll keep it short. Brad and Dalyn have been best friends since they were in kindergarten, they even lived together for a few years in college. Naturally, Cassie and I had to become friends. She's so fun to be around and I'm glad they brought us together as friends. They recently moved to Knoxville so we got to spend about a month in the same city with them.
Last but certainly not least is Kelley and Jonathan. Jonathan and Dalyn went to dental school together and Kelley and I became good friends from the moment we met. We spent lots of time with them for the 4 years while they were in school. They are both two truly amazing people and we miss them dearly. We're hoping a vacation or visit with them will be in the near future.
