Congratulations, DQ!!!!

And now, for some good news!!!

DQ has been accepted into the Interlochen Arts Academy Summer Arts Camp for Creative Wrting!! We are so thrilled for her, and extremely proud of this accomplishment. She is on her way to fulfill her dreams of becoming a writer. In the meantime, she has decided she wants to pursue her Masters Degree and become an English teacher at her current high school, and devote her spare time towards writing. We are going to convert a room into her writing studio - not sure how we're going to do it yet, but we'll do it sometime this week. Luckily, we have enough bedrooms that we can do this kind of thing.

Last week, she won her THIRD medal for the International Latin Award. Her freshman year, she won a gold, and her sophomore and junior years she has won a silver.

She went to prom on Saturday night and looked exquisitely beautiful. I will post some pictures as soon as I can.

And while she has been in a great deal of pain throughout all of this with TP, she has also been a great source of comfort and strength for me. Her hugs have held me together when I though I was going to fall apart. She misses the sister she used to know an awful lot.

So, thank you, DQ. You're an amazing young lady! May your gift of writing bring much joy to the world! I love you very much. . .
