We are All the Marletts, a family of six trying to live life to its fullest! My husband and I fell in love at a young age and dreamed of being married, having a family, and growing old together… Even though our life is what we hoped it would be, we could never have imagined what GOD had in store for us along the way. Being parents to four remarkable kiddos has proven to be MORE in every way! When our youngest was born, although we didn’t know it right away, we were given the privilege and challenge of raising a “special child”, a medically complex child. Since starting this blog, Lucy has been diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease, a progressive degenerative disease of energy metabolism. Even though this is a blog about our life as a family, I write often about Lucy’s medical issues. If you care to read about the trials and tribulations of raising four children, the joys and hardships of our family life, the emotional roller coaster ride that raising a medically complex child puts one on, and the love that pours from my heart onto the pages of this blog then…welcome!
