Day 58 - Fearless Fun

So I will admit that as parents of a child with Leukemia we worry constantly.  Anna has little to no immune system right now so we are terrified of her catching a bug. It stinks because as much as we want to protect her from additional illness we also want her to be a regular kid. 

This day was no different. While she was excited to go off to the play ground, Stepdad was neurotic. "What if there are germs! Be careful, don't fall. Wash your hands. Disinfect." You get the point. As a parent its hard to let her be a "kid" right now, even though we want her to be. So when she is, it brings great joy....and her fearlessness helps us to be so too! 

What a beautiful smile! She's gorgeous <3
