I'm so proud of you...and your beautiful daughter.


Hi my name is Becky. I just sort of stumbled upon your blog. I have a 4 year old daughter who is adopted from China and hearing impaired. She has LVAS, a progressive hearing disorder and will one day be totally deaf, currently she is aided in one ear. We didn't know about this when adopting her, no one did, she was too young. I have often thought that I would like to adopt again and purposefully, this time, adopt a hearing impaired child. Thanks for sharing your inspiring story.


wow, our children teach us so much don't they? i have hit those walls running before too, sadly i hit my worst one the DAY OF my biggest race- it took everything out of me to finish it! you are amazing and an inspiration!


WAY TO GO! Tears here too...You're only a few weeks away:)


Waouuuu ... you also brought tears to my eyes. Love your thoughts !


Sandra - first you WILL do it! Second, You ARE strong! YOU ARE AWESOME! I want to hear ALL about the race...Good Luck and RUN HAPPY!!!!


You have all the inspiration you need right there in your 2 precious girls - both are so resilient, so special!


You can do it! Best wishes on your run. Looking forward to reading about it.

Love this post. Truly inspirational.


Aw, this post brought tears to my eyes. You and Jazzie have both done great! You're both great inspiration!


Klasse!!! Knap hoor, en mooi omschreven hoe je jezelf door die laatste miles hebt heen geslagen! Goed gedaan, ik doe het je niet na ;-)


That's some good motivation right there! I am all set to run my 1/2 marathon this Sunday as well. However, I've taken 5 weeks off of running because of shin splints. Not sure how I'll do, considering I ran 7.5 this past Sunday and was done. I couldn't muster up the energy to finish the planned 10 miles. I wish I had another month to build my endurance back up. Goodluck Sunday! You'll do great!

You have the best motivation to keep going!! I love that you could find that perspective when you needed it. Yay for you! Yay for Jazzie & all the children like her, that you are going to help!!!
