Everybody knows that I adopt people from all over the world. The kid that started it all was Danny. (See The Bastard Cast ^.) Danny lived with our family 22 years ago. His Dad was sick with cancer. Danny loved our family and we loved him so he just stayed at our house. I fed him (the kid could eat more cantelope than anybody I’ve ever seen), sent him to school, yelled at him, loved him…..like he was mine.
Danny is now a Warrant Officer in the army. Just last month he returned to the US from Germany. Now a Kansas resident. I got a phone call from him last night. His wife Michiyo was diagnosed this week with the most aggressive type of leukemia. He says her survival chances are not good – about 20%. They have an 11 year old, a three month old and a daughter in between. His is moving her today from a hospital in Wichita Kansas to a cancer hospital in Nebraska that specializes in leukemia. He was trying so hard to be brave, to be positive. But the truth was….he was scared to death. For his wife, for their children, for himself.
I told him the road ahead was going to be long and hard. But I also shared a truth that I learned years ago…..Danny, you don’t have to walk that road alone…..unless you choose to.
Please keep them in your prayers.
Almighty Father hear me on behalf of Michiyo for who I implore the aid of your tender mercy, that she be restored to bodily health………………….
