Celebrating Birthdays with the American Cancer Society

I've been 'meeting' so many new follower recently and some of you may not know a ton about my family.  Most of you will have gleaned that I have three fabulous children, but some of you may not know that my eldest daughter is adopted.

She has been with us since she was three and a half and I can't imagine what our lives would have been like without her (even though she's in the terrible teen stage) but sometimes I want to go back and change everything ... not because we don't love her to bits and she is OUR daughter, but because having her in our lives permanently like this means that it came out of a very deep tragedy.

Robyn's mother was Wayne's sister Shellie, who was also one of my very best friends.  You can read more about her in this series of posts I wrote: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3.  She died of Cancer less than a month after her thirty-first birthday and I always wonder what life would have been like if she's just had more birthdays...

So I am proud to be part of a team that is spreading the word about the American Cancer Society More Birthdays campaign and hoping that by sharing it that someone else has more birthdays with their loved ones!

I actually worked for the Canadian Cancer Society back before Robyn came into our lives and I know just how hard they worked, and I know that the American Cancer Society is working just as hard! I appreciate everything they are doing to create more birthdays this year and every year!
