What is new with Kemp family

It was a while since I posted anything in my blog. I cannot say that I was extremely busy, just did not feel like sitting down and writing about what is going on.

Tom and I are doing ok. We are sure that Chandler is going good with his family in Heaven. We miss him a lot here. His 5 months anniversary was not easy for us. Tom and I were talking how Chandler could be sitting, smiling, making different noises, laughing, crying and doing all things baby his age would do. But instead it is very quiet and lonely in our house. (It was busy and fun just a month ago here, but I will get back to it in a moment).
I joined Support group at Children's Hospital. I was not sure if I want to do it, I was worried that it will freak me out. But I am glad I did. Parents I met there are wonderful and each one of them has an Angel in the Heaven who left too soon. We are so grateful to have Children's Hospital in our city. People there really care and are ready to help any time we need them.
Since November we had three services for children who died. One right before Christmas at Children's', one in Akron Chapel and one just a month ago at Children's for children who died within last 6 months. It is very hard to join these type of services but it make me feel closer to my son.
Chandler's stone is ready. Tom and I had a chance to see it a month ago. It is just beautiful and we do not have words to describe how happy we are that it turned to be the way we wanted it to be!
Ok, just a month ago, my six years old (who turned seven) niece was visiting us from Russia. It was a first time Tom and Tanya (niece) met and I should tell you, my husband is in love. He wanted this girl to stay with us so bad, two of them were inseparable! (my brother passed away 2 years ago, so she really misses a Man in the family which is actually really sad..) But we had the best time! Tanya is full of joy and happiness! We took her and her mom to Disney and I can tell that I sow new Disney thru Tanya's eyes! Tanya's favorite story is about Snow White. She was watching it three times a day (I am no kidding) while she was here. Now, she tells everyone, that Uncle Tom is the Prince and she is the Princess (somehow, I am the step mother, but I don't really care because I can see how wonderful father Tom is going to be and just thinking about it is making me happy!)
I guess this is all what is going on this Kemp's family. Tom is really busy at work and his teaching. I am busy at work too, plus I took some extra responsibilities at IMA just to stay busy.
I hope that you are all doing well! I follow all your blogs and thinking about all of you all the time. Sorry that I am in hiding lately..

God Bless you!
