About the Carlsons

My name is Amy.  I met my husband Ken in December of 2009.

Ken had two prior marriages (long story), and two children that I love as much as my own two, who were born in 2010, and 2011.

Ken and I were married in 2011.  He is, without a doubt, my soul mate, and the man I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Funny how the universe can finally give you everything you ever wanted, then in an instant, take it all away.

The last two years have been full of challenges - our family has dealt with issues that no one should have have to face.  But we've carried on, and been stronger for it.

The last thing we ever thought we'd have to add to our list of challenges was cancer, but here we are.

I'm hoping that by chronicling these experiences, I can help others who feel as lost and scared as I do right now.  We're remaining positive.

We have to.
