Once everyone was well rested, we all loaded back into the SUV. As we pulled away from the park, Renee asked me where we were heading I laughed because I had completely forgotten to explain what we were doing and what our plan of action would be.
I told her that we were heading to the south side of Airepseh to meet up with my brother and my two sisters. Once reunited, we were all going to head for the city of Haven. She did not respond right away. Finally, she turned to me with a smile and asked if she could join us on this adventure. I told her as long as she could handle the excitement she was more than welcome.
As we headed down the street I peeked into my rearview mirror to check on my kids. I was surprised that they were snuggled up together fast asleep. The image of them as babies flashed into my head and for some reason that gave me a feeling of hope-- I didn't know what lay ahead of me, but I knew that we, would see it through, together, to the very end.
