What a sad day this is as we pray for all the families who lost loved ones in the plane that crashed 5 miles from the Buffalo International Airport last night. All on board perished as well as a man who lived in the house that the plane crashed into. Reid is friends with Jill, the daughter of the man who passed away in the house. Jill and her mom managed to escape with fairly minor injuries, but Jill's dad was not so lucky. Reid is shocked by the news that it was Jill's house that was hit. He said they had actually both been at the same party this past Sat. night. She also attends SUNY Brockport. For some strange reason we never knew about the crash until this afternoon. Steve and I went on a shopping trip to Jo Ann Fabrics today and then out to lunch for Valentine's Day. On the way into the city, the dj of one of the radio stations kept making reference to the tragedy in Clarence Center and all the grieving families. He never said what had happened, so we did not find out till we got home and Rachel told us. It is always scary when these accidents occur, but it really hits harder when it is so close to home. It makes us think about all the times we have had loved ones flying in or out of this airport. Megan just flew home from Austalia in Aug. and my brother Joe and his wife Denise flew this past July for a visit. I can't imagine being someone waiting to pick someone up at the airport, only to find out they are gone.
I blog about many different topics including my Etsy shops, my family and pets as well as some dieting discussion and occasionally television show reviews . I sometimes throw in a recipe and some pictures. I welcome new viewers and love it when my readers leave comments. :o)
I have been married to a truly amazing man for over 28 years. We have four birth children, a daughter age 27, a son, age 25 and twins, a girl and a boy age 21. We have three adopted sons, ages 21, 11, and 7. Our two younger boys have many special needs but are a blessing to us none the less. We have done foster care for about 9 years and despite the difficult situations that arise, it is a very rewarding experience and there is a such a need for good foster homes. At this point I have to say that in my opinion, our birth children are totally awesome individuals. It was a family decision to do foster care and then when the opportunity arose, to adopt. Our kids eagerly opened their hearts and shared their parents. We could never have had this opportunity to help other kids if it hadn't been for our wonderful children....we love them dearly.
