It is the most amazing feeling to set a huge goal, thinking that maybe it was just a pipe dream, and then reach it. That is exactly what our family did on October 3 2011. It took our whole family to reach this goal, along with many others who were patient, understanding and helpful whenever we needed it. The kids had to be extremely patient with living arrangements, their belongings in storage, unfulfilled promises that never seemed to come true for a child. (Sandboxes, and chickens, playhouses and ponies, never having to leave your friends or start a new school ever, ever again.) This went on for 3 long years for these kids. Now that Daniel and I's dream has come true, we are working on fulfilling our long awaited promises and making all their dreams come true - a little at a time! WE BOUGHT OUR RANCH!
