As this is your last caring bridge entry, I suppose this will be my last guestbook signing. I will continue to keep up to date with your new web page.  I am so glad that being at home was not as scary as you had thought it might be. I'm sure there will be adjustments, but stay strong, and it will all work out. I am sorry to hear that Ethan is back in the hospital, but I am sure it will be a short stay and then you can get back to readjusting to home. Wow. Doesn't that sound wonderful? HOME!

With love,
Caryn, Bruce, Brandon, and Lauren Williams from Dayton

Dear Ethan and Family-  the road to recovery as we know takes times to heal and to help those who need healing.  You are a very special family with courage and strength beyond measure.  We are excited that Ethan will be coming home and as always, it will be on Ethan time and when it is perfect.  Hang in there and know that we continue to lift you all up in prayer and love.  Ginger

Loved today's post!

I retired from teaching 7th grade Special Ed this July.  For many years, on the first day of school for teachers, our director of Special Education Student Services would give us a packet filled with paperwork, students information, and always the poem about Holland.  No matter how many times I had read it before, it always brought me to tears.  Since I did not have a "first day" of school this September, I just took the time to read the poem again.  Same reaction as always- please pass the tissues.
May your journey in "Holland" be smooth; may you always have at least one moment each day when you can stop to smell the tulips.
Wishing you much luck on Ethan's arrival back home!

That was beautiful.  Team Ethan is most certainly with you to help carry your baggage, to disburse it as needed, to remember instructions when you cannot, and will be there every time you turn around. 

I wish we could help from here in Dayton but all we can do is provide small words of guidance and remind you that there are people EVERYWHERE, whether you know them or not, who read your beautiful and inspiring posts and believe, as you do, in the future.

Beautiful! You are making me cry. I am glad you feel so supported. :-)  It reminds me of the saying "Dont fear the future - God is already there"  :-) I received Brett's e-mail today and as soon as I got home, I jumped online to schedule a dinner. Too late. Wanted you to know I'll still praying for you and still want to do my part.We'll have to leave it up to the "Great Air Traffic Controller". If you haven't read the poem I mentioned before, here it is:http://www.our-kids.org/Archives/Holland.html. For me it perfectly describes the experience of adjusting to new expectations, a "new normal". I hope you get online and connect with some "Dutch" people (ie those who live with similar challenges) because that will make life so much easier.  I wish you all peace and happiness in your new home. Have a great flight.
Hugs,

Kadish family,

I realize I have been sending you messages on this caring bridge site, but have never really introduced myself to you. I will be sending you an email to do this, but for now, we will be praying for a less hectic return home than in your dream. You have faced everything up til now with such grace and courage that I'm sure your trip home will happen with better than expected results. You are indeed a special family and always in our thoughts.

With love,
Caryn, Bruce, Brandon, and Lauren Williams from Dayton

Kadish Family,

We wish you a smooth transition in bringing Ethan home.  Though it may seem overwhelming right now, I'm confident you'll surpass your own expectations.  You've demonstrated incredible strength, courage and resilience during Ethan's journey to recovery so far, and these qualities will allow you to successfully manage his next big transition.  Best of luck, and we'll keep you in our prayers.
