Another quick update...

Hey everyone, quick update: won two BIG cases in the last month with http://www.dafcf.org/! I'm so excited for these families. Can't go into too much detail but one was getting AFLAC to payout on a claim they've been denying since 2009 and another one was against a medical ins. company in Illinois that had been denying infertility benefits (IMPROPERLY too!!) to a family since 2007. I'm so thrilled that we won, and I LOVE the experience that this work is giving me!

I didn't get into the nursing program (any of them) for the fall, and I'm taking this as a sign that I am supposed to take another path. I'm done "fighting" so to speak, and am just going to surrender to what is. I DID get accepted to the Human Services Program at Western Washington University so I will be starting there in the fall and am very excited!

The kids are getting SO smart, I'm teaching them how to count and they are doing so good. we are just working with fingers now, such as "cassie, hold up 1 finger on your RIGHT hand and 3 fingers on your LEFT hand. Now, what is 1 + 3" and then she counts and tells me 4. It's so cute to see the proud looks on their face.

My friend jessica, http://www.raneydayphotography.com/ did some mothers day pictures yesterday of my kiddos and my mom and I. She is an AMAZINGLY talented Photographer, and a WONDERFUL friend! If you are a facebook user, go search Raney day photography and if you "like" the page, you can comment on ALL of her photos. For any of my friends in the WA area, she is AMAZING!!!!! Here are a few pictures:

Love the new pics!! So cute!!

Such exciting news about winning two cases with dafcf. You are an amazing help to all of us affected by CF.

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get into the nursing program. However, I think you would be great at Human Resources or definately a great lawyer;)

Julie, how cool to read your blog and see your recent entry!!! First of all, the pictures are awesome - you are beautiful and your children are adorable!!

Again, I can't ever thank you enough for all of your help with our insurance company and their denial of infertility benefits to us. You have been a life saver to us with this - WE WON thanks to you and your dedication to helping other people simply from the kindness of your heart!! This has opened so many more options to us, to make our dreams come true!!

I agree with the previous poster,I'm sorry you didn't get into a nursing program, but you will make one heck of a a great human resources person, or one killer attorney if you ever decide to go that route!! ;-)
