Thanks for coming to our web site. If you're here reading this then you probably already know who we are, so this "About Us" page may not be necessary. However, if you're interested in our story then you can read on.
We're a young family currently living in Southern California. The real motivation for this web site comes from the recent news that my wife, Monica, has an aggressive form of breast cancer. This is one of my favorite pictures of her holding our son Kai:
The day we heard the news from the doctors was on October 2, 2007. Today as I write this it is only October 15, but the last two weeks have been a whirlwind.
Monica is a middle school teacher and has taught in the classroom 6th, 7th, or 8th grade for the past 8 years. This is her 9th year and she started a new position as "Reading Coach" (I think that's what she called it) where she helps other English/Langauge Arts teachers develop their curriculum.
We met when I was a computer tech at the school she was teaching at in Mendota, CA (Shout out to McCabe Jr. High!!). I got to see her in action in the classroom on several occasions while working on the computers and I must say I was impressed. She really cares about the kids and it shows in her teaching style.
I guess that's why, as we face this unimaginable trial, so many people have reached out to her in love and support. My hope for this web site is that it will enable those of you who want to support her along her difficult road to stay updated and to have a way to reach out and let her know that you are there supporting her with love and prayers.
As I continue working on this web site, I will be sure to add more here on the about us page to document our story, but in the meantime I am going to focus on other sections of the site.
Please continue to pray for Monica. We are confident that God answers prayers and we are standing firm His Word expecting to see great things.
Matt. 18:19 / John 14:12-14 / Romans 10:8-10 / John 15:7 / John 16:23-24 / James 1:6-7
