Mom has been here in Thunder Bay visiting for the past week to help out with the girls while PE is away for work. I had surgery a couple of weeks ago so mom came to lend a hand while I recover. Yesterday your dad called to let her know about the dates that she would need to be in Montreal for the ongoing court cases for him to be able to see you. As I have been thinking about what might happen in the next couple of months for you I am both excited that your dad will finally get to see you and a little nervous about how hard this is going to be for you. I want you to know that I will be praying for you and your mom and your dad. I hope in the Lord for healing to take place and for your relationship with your dad to blossom. I hope in the Lord that truth might prevail, that humility and forgiveness would be bountiful. I hope in the Lord that grace would rule and reign in all our hearts and that we might be reconciled. I have great trust in my heavenly Father and I am really excited that our family might finally get to see you. I must admit that I have been longing for that day for a long time and I won't believe it until it happens. BUT I know that God's time is infinitely perfect and I am waiting patiently and expectantly. If the courts decided that your dad gets custody I will be really looking forward to seeing you in August when we come to Vancouver. For now, I will continue to hope and pray, trusting in God for your life and His plans for it. I love you Onyx!
We went home to Nova Scotia for a visit in March. First we went to see PE's parents who live in Truro (about an hour and a half away from Nana and Grampy). PE's family is from Denmark - hence the name Poul-Erik Binderup. In Denmark the grandparents are called by the relation to the grandchildren. So Far Far means father's father and Far Mor means father's mother. So that is what MacKenzie and Alexa call them.
Above is Kaj (Far Far) and below is Joan (Far Mor)
Just like her big sister, Alexa is a meat lover. Who can resist Grampy's ribs from Paddy's? Nana and Grampy are both Chefs at sister restaurant in Nova Scotia. Every once and a while we bring some of their famous ribs back to Thunder Bay. Sooooo Yummy!!!
