On October 7th & 8th our little family bunkered down in our Orlando home and were prepared for the worst to come from the effects of Hurricane Matthew. First of all I want to say my thoughts and prayers are with all those that experienced damage or trauma during the hurricane. This was one of the most frightening times of my life. Even though Orlando didn’t get hit nearly as bad as they anticipated, just knowing what could have come and the preparation brought many fears. Since living in Orlando (5 years now) we have never experienced anything like this.
The first thing that went through my mind was “How am I going to be strong for Johnny?” It’s different going through a natural disaster with a baby. You have to be brave and continue with everyday routines. Johnny was such a trooper through it all. I really think he had no idea what was going on and thought “just another play day with mommy and daddy” The outpour of prayers, love, and support was astonishing! Thank you to all!
You could truly feel the strength of support rise above the hurricane.
