Aria continues to amaze and impress us with her natural sense of empathy and consideration for others. I often said I worried more about how Evan's surgery would effect Aria, but she seems to take everything in stride. Her questions are challenging and we just answer everything as honestly as possible. She's looking forward to our next trip to NYU (more than Evan I'm sure) and always loves being in NY and buying things from the street vendors.
Rob and I are happy and proud of our children and the people they are becoming. Every year just gets better than the one before. Although this year was filled with medical challenges as our whole family recovered from Evan's surgery, I feel like we're closer than ever and have overcome so much.
We are looking forward to 2009 and wish everyone a happy and healthy new year!
