It is the 6th of December, 2020. How can it be. We just passed the 10th anniversary of our incredible 36 hour adventure taking Ryne to the Dominican Republic for stem cell therapy. It included private planes, lost transports, lost wheelchairs, tarmac searches, ambulance confusion, room reservation difficulty, customs avoidance, security shakedowns, gunpoint searches, border search, and the beauty of Hispaniola. That trip had it all, for which Larry has often entreated me to write a screenplay for, and thinking back to all of the extreme situations and characters involved; he might be right. Here we are 10 years later, much different than 10 years ago, but also in many ways, fortunately the same, or more.

“I Still Believe”

Scattered words and empty thoughts
Seem to pour from my heart
I've never felt so torn before
Seems I don't know where to start
But it's now that I feel Your grace falls like rain
From every fingertip, washing away my pain
I still believe in Your faithfulness
I still believe in Your truth
I still believe in Your holy word
Even when I don't see, I still believe
Though the questions still fog up my mind
With promises I still seem to bear
Even when answers slowly unwind
It's my heart I see You prepare
But its now that I feel Your grace fall like rain
From every finger tip, washing away my pain
I still believe in Your faithfulness
I still believe in Your truth
I still believe in Your holy word
Even when I don't see, I still believe
The only place I can go is into your arms
Where I throw to you my feeble prayers
In brokenness I can see that this was your will for me
Help me to know Your near.

-Jeremy Camp

    Great picture of Tammi and Ryne she was a warrior and mama bear steadfast in her battle to care for Ryne. Her love for Ryne brought him along to where he is at in his rebirth and when the baton was passed you have carried the hope and passion it takes to prop him up and carry him along to the next steps in his life. He has quite a story a screen play would be an inspiring one of love, hope, and tenacity.

    Time is such an odd thing, isn't it? In some ways, it feels like Ryne's journey began only yesterday. I know we've all been blessed during these years, and so appreciate the sharing of your family's story. I agree... write the screen play!
