Daddy is laying down receiving one of Colum's famous cuddles.
Oh how I wish that were me right now.


Nightly wrestling match.  Something I miss watching terribly.  I know my boys miss it too.  My family feels so small.

    You both did great in the interview! I was so glad at how good you both looked, after all of the injuries you've had. You look healthy and, Kelly, you are BEAUTIFUL!

    Thank you for continuing to share your story. There are a lot of us out here still thinking of you and hoping for the best. SO relieved that justice WILL be served for sweet Colum.

  3. This is very exciting and so sad at the same time! I can't help but cry once again as I write this. You both are amazing people and you did great on your interview! I can't imagine the pain you go through everyday. I am sure the physical pain is horrible but I assume it does not even compare to the emotional pain you face every day when you wake up. I am excited for the fundraiser this weekend, I hope it is a big success! Thank you for your updates! You truly are beautiful people.

    I've been following your blog since your loss. I want to remind you, that you and your family are in my preyers along with many others. Stay STRONG! I'm sure at times you feel weak. In my eyes you're a very STRONG Mommy, Wife, friend and so on. I will continue to prey for your family. Best Wishes and Lots of Love!

  7. Kelly, I am so happy that charges have been filed. It will never take your pain away but just knowing this man will pay for what he did. It is sad that HE chose to do drugs and drive and you and your family suffer because of his decision. Please know that I think of you and your family every day, and pray for your healing. You are such an amazing person, Colum was so fortunate to have you for a mommy! It shows how happy he was in all the pictures and especially the video! God Bless you and your family.

  10. So happy for you Kelly & Ryan. You looked so beautiful on the video, Kelly. Of course, the pictures and video of Colum made me cry. What a cute and precious baby he is. Your family is so beautiful and you can see that there is so much love for each other. Continue to hold onto each other and I know you'll get through this as a family.

  11. I am so glad that you are finally getting some justice, I wish it was a heftier charge, but at least he will be off the streets. When I heard that he was high on meth on the clip, I instantly broke down crying. He took away your precious gift with utter stupidity. I can only imagine your pain. I am hoping that you guys are feeling some closure and healing and will even more so when he is convicted. You are amazing, Ryan is amazing and that Finn, oh man. He is so dang awesome and adorable. I love those pictures, what sweet memories. What a sweet little angel boy. I will hug my Rowan tighter than ever today.

  14. I just found your blog. I remember hearing of your accident and had to go back to the begining and read. I cried with you girl. you are so strong and such an inspiration! I wish I could ease your pain.
    You are an amazing woman and Ryan sounds like your soul mate! I hope you two continue to heal in all ways. So glad you will have justice.

  15. I am so happy that you finally have the peace of mind that justice is coming. It's been a long wait and hopefully that is due to the fact that prosecuters have been carefully gathering information so they can build a solid case against him and he will receive maximum punishment.

    You are an amazing family. Thank you so much for opening your hearts to us and sharing with us all of the frustrations and struggles as well as the triumphs. There are so many people in your court rooting for a full recovery for you and Ryan as well as a precious baby for you as soon as possible.

    I loved the video from your previous post. What an angel Colum was. Please take comfort in the fact that he is watching over you all.

  16. I am glad justice is finally being served.
    I am also so thankful for the example of your strength. Your family is so strong, and it is an example to all who have the privilege of seeing your beautiful family on pictures, the news, etc.
    Part of that beauty is your sweet Angel Colum. What a special boy. And your sweet Finn, you are blessed, and they are lucky boys to have such awesome parents.
    Prayers coming your way. (HUGS) -Angela-

  20. I am so glad to hear that they are finally going after the jerk that did this to you and your family!! I wish people would realize that they can't drive when they are on drugs.

  21. LOVE LOVE LOVE the video!! What a special little boy. You have taught me so much since I started reading your blog a couple months ago. I drove by the accident site yesterday morning and I thought to myself...I wonder if they ever filed charges against the horrible person that changed your world. I was surprised while watching the news and say your interview! All I could do is cry happy tears for finally some wonderful news. I pray for you and your family daily Kelly. Thank you so much for sharing your ongoing story!

  24. I've been thinking of this post all week. First off, I'm glad that man is now in jail, that's exactly where he belongs and hopefully for a very very long time. Mostly I've thought about those pictures though, and the video from your last update. He is so sweet and beautiful in that video. We took a very long time to bring a second child into our family. It was just the three of us for what felt like forever but now that we have Penny it feels different, better, right, just brings a whole new element into our family. Probably a big part of that is watching the sibling relationship between my kids. It's too beautiful for words and I just can't imagine having to go back. I can't wait for you to be able to bring more babies into your family. I know that is something I would miss and want back, watching my children play together.

  26. Having been hit by a drunk driver, this makes me sick to my stomach. Stay strong. This is a step in the healing process, although you will never fully heal. This man deserves everything he gets. No excuse for what he did.
