    I've been gone along time from BYC.... Since then, in the last year or so, we have had many changes.

    I imagine after so long, few, if any, BYCers, will remember me...but that's ok.

    To update quickly, I left long ago, because my youngest, then 15 months old, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.
    Soon after, we had to move, I had to disperse my flock of jersey giants (all non hatchery stock that took YEARS to develope), and we moved in with my very sick parents, to be their care takers, and to continue to care for our son and 5 other children.

    My parents both passed away last year, and our son is now on hospice with not much time left....

    We have also since moved to a new home. Luckily, I have been able to have a small flock of chickens again, to help me have something positive to do during this terrible time in our lives.

    So....that's why Ive been gone in a nut shell. I am now slowly trying to reach out and slowly move forward. Please forgive me if I do not answer messages, I won't be able to get on often as my son takes most of my time (as he should). If anyone should like, please feel free to visit his page and show him support and love- Prayers for Spencer , on facebook. Sorry I don't have the link...it's easy to find though. He is 3 now.

    Thanks all!

    You have your hands full, I'm sorry about the loss of your parents. I can't imagine the heart ache you must be dealing with. Nothing I can think to write here will ever soothe your mind or heart but know that I'm sending good thoughts to you and Spencer. My heart Truly hurts for you and your family. God bless you.

    You have been through a lot!
    Prayers for you and your family and for Spenser.
    I know you must be exhausted and mentally spent by now, if you need words of encouragement, Byc is a great place to get some!
    Hang in there.

    my condolences for your parents, and I am truly sorry for the issues with your child's health, I could not imagine losing one of my nieces or nephews. I hope you can get some help and healing thru these ordeals.

    I am so sorry for the hard things that life has handed to you.

    So glad that you can have chickens again, something about them... They never say the wrong thing, have no strong opinions, teach us to just "be".

    Blessings and peace to you and your family.
