We’re going cruisin’

Thanks to a wonderful couple who have started Joy-Hope Foundation, a foundation that helps families grieving the loss of a child, we are going on an all expenses paid 7 day Caribbean cruise vacation!!!!  We leave tomorrow morning.

We are cruising out of Puerto Rico, so we will spend a few days in PR before leaving for the cruise.  Maria was born and raised in Puerto Rico and we are very excited to take Isabela there so that she can see where Mommy grew up.

So, I will be leaving my computer behind and will not be blogging for the next week.  Please pray for our time together as a family.   Thanks so much!  God bless you.

And once again….a BIG THANKS to Allan and Amy of the Joy-Hope Foundation!!!!  You guys have really blessed us!!!!

  5. I know as I write this your already in PR. So I hope to hear that your all enjoying yourselves. I hope God blesses this time for you, Maria and Isabella. Faith

  6. How wonderful that you, Maria and Isabela can have this time away together to reconnect with each other and to begin the healing. Such a blessing that Maria will get to visit her home country and that Isabela will see where her mommy was born.
    My prayers this week will be for smooth sailing for the Whittakers!

  7. I was so excited to see that you were given such a wonderful gift. You needed to have a chance to make new memories of your newest family dynamic. I hope that you allowed yourself to enjoy it – I know sometimes after a physical death it is hard to give yourself permission to laugh, permission to have fun, and even permission to take a break from grieving! I have prayed that you had a time to do all three. I care very much for your family, and wish daily I could have somehow changed things, but all anyone can do is move on. Please be blessed in all you do, my friends! Love in His Name, Judi
