I posted this a few weeks ago and boy have things changed here at Casa de Cashish. A few of you already know but I reluctantly wanted to post an update. On Nov 20th my wife an I celebrated our wedding anniversary, we celebrated by adopting a 5 year old little girl, (our children think we've lost it). This has been a major shift in our lives for the past several years, but everything has finally been finalized. The joy shared by all of us in the family was short lived. On Nov 21 one of our 36 year old daughters (twins ) was diagnosed with cancer, she has a golf-ball sized growth on her kidney. Needless to say, I feel like I've had the breath of life kicked out of me. My daughter has been home since before Thanksgiving and is very positive, active and in great spirits. Funny how life can turn on a dime. We are a tight family and have the support of many close friends. We anticipate a long journey ahead of us and we plan to travel it together, as a family.

@Cashish, congrats on the baby girl, ours turned 4 on the day she became ours. It was one of the most exciting days of my life...and also the hardest I think!. We are older and some of our friends thought we were crazy as well....but its been the best thing that ever happened to us. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
As to your daughter, she will be in our prayers. We've had to many friends battle cancer to not feel your pain even though we don't know each other. May God give you the strength and courage to face the coming storms.
Enjoy your new baby girl! I hope she brings untold joy to both of you!
