Where do I even begin about this family.....
It all started 20 years ago! I met Patrick in the 7th grade. By the time we were in the 9th grade we were the best of friends. I was at his house pretty much 24/7. His family took me in like I was one of their own. They took me out for my first steak to Fred's Hickory Inn for my 14th birthday and I still have the teddy bear card they got me. This family is one of those families that molded me early on in my life. I will be eternally grateful for their love and friendship. I am beyond blessed.
Fast forward 20 years. Patrick and I are still great friends and there is a bonus...his wife. Now I am also great friends with Meredith who could not be more wonderful. I could go on and on about her. Beautiful, smart, kind, funny, awesome mommy...and many many more adjectives! The two of them make the perfect pair. They are one of the strongest couples I know. On March, 28 2011 Meredith gave birth to a BEAUTIFUL baby boy named Miller. Miller had a head full of brown hair and beautiful blue eyes. He was a very laid back baby and after the first 3 weeks of his life they started to get a little concerned. On April 20th they took him to the doctor and were shocked to find out that Miller had SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy). Miller went to heaven on June 23, 2011. Since then his parents have carried on his legacy by raising money and awareness in his name. It's amazing all the things they have done. You can read more about it here.
Patrick and Meredith already had Cole when Miller was born. Cole is now 5 and is a doll face. He is the sweetest little boy and boy can he play sports! Since Miller they have added on to the family with Mattie. Let me just tell you what, Mattie is by far one of the cutest baby girls I have ever been around. I have never seen her in a bad mood. During this session Cole had a sinus infection and she had a double ear infection and they both smiled from ear to ear. Just amazing.
I could go on and on about them. I have so many memories with this family and plan on creating many more. I thank God that they are in my life.
