Stressful to say the least

I wrote to you last week telling you about Alex finding his birth family. Which was really kind of awesome. That was actually about the only bright light in out week last week. On the Sunday before he found his them, a family friend lost his battle and passed away. This was one of the kindest men I have ever met. Very much a family man. Very active in his son’s lives and his grandchildren lives. His beautiful wife and him spent more than 50 years together. That was very hard on all of us. Then on Tuesday, Alex’s Aunt passed away. Huge loss to the family. I had never gotten to meet her myself, but the stories about her from Alex and his sisters were that she was a very sweet lady. So the week was just a hard week in general. A lot of emotions flying around. I know it has to be hard because we are in Iowa and his family is mainly in South Carolina or Pennsylvania. It has been hard for us not to be able to get there to see everyone. We have for sure been checking in and for sure sending all of our love and thoughts to everyone. Thank you for all hanging in there. I know I haven’t written a lot the past two weeks, but Thank you for hanging in there and supporting us. We appropriate all of you.
