Another milestone has been met for the Porche family. For the last four years life has been hectic to say the least. Between dialysis and transplant, our family hasn't been able to enjoy a vacation together. Those events not only took time away from us, but they took a lot of our financial resources as well; making luxuries like vacations a far away thought. This year is the first year that we are medically and financially able to take Parker away from reality to enjoy a week of family time, and he loved every minute of it. We are already looking forward to the next trip and making more memories with him. This year we got to enjoy the white sand and turquoise waters of Destin, Florida. And while I was a bit concerned on how his anxieties would handle the sand and ocean, he definitely surprised us. That child loved the water, and asked to go swimming as soon as his eyes opened in the morning. We are so thankful that we are in a place in our lives where we are able to enjoy these experiences!
