A note from Mom...
When Lindsey learned of her tumor, there where two things she wanted the most. 1 - to graduate college. She had worked so hard and was so close to finishing her degree in education. The second was to get married.
I learned today that Lindsey's friends at school approached UCM administration to inquire about the potential for Lindsey to receive a college diploma. Her friends were informed today that Lindsey does indeed have enough credit hours to graduate and if she is able, she can walk across the stage and receive her diploma in May. These same friends, along with her advisor, will be coming to the house for breakfast in the morning to share the great news. I hope Lindsey is having a good morning so that she can comprehend the message and share in the excitement. (THIS WILL BE RESCHEDULED..... Lindsey was up all night and didn't go to sleep until 5:30am)
If you've been reading Lindsey's blog, you know that our family seeks to find the good in things everyday. This was our good news of the day. In the midst of Lindsey's challenges, and ours, we see God's grace working through others. We see love expressed through Lindsey's college classmates. Classmates who took it upon themselves to approach administration and ask the question. While some may of thought about it, these students took action to ensure a classmate was recognized for thier efforts and results. Because of this effort, at least one of Lindsey's wishes will be met. I'd also bet that these students will be the kind of teacher that any parent would dream of for their child. A teacher who goes above and beyond and who is not afraid to ask the question that only others think of. Thank you Katie. I know that you spear-headed this effort. We are thankful. God bless you.
