Ady & Bekah Hauert’s Blog – Cure Kids Cancer
Ady celebrated her birthday on February 25. I can’t believe 6 years old has gone by already. If you have any kids I’m sure you know the feeling. This year seems to be stirring a lot of emotions for me. It’s just crazy how fast our kids grow up and how soon they will be gone. Also, it was this exact day on Ady’s 4th birthday that her leg pain began which started this whole journey.
Last year was such a blur because we were so busy with just trying to function with everything going on in our lives that I feel like I didn’t have time to process anything that was really going on in my head. It was more just trying to put one foot in front of the other, make sure my kids were fed, taken care of, Ady got her meds, and most importantly they were loved. We had Ady going through chemo, a 3 year old, and a 2 month old. I’m so glad we are at this point now in her journey and her life. I’m so thankful for the chance we got to be her mom and dad, but even more grateful for the time we have been given with each of our kids. Things can change so quickly, and Ady’s journey has definitely taught us that first hand.
But this year as I sit back and look at her glowing face, full of life and energy, I realize also what all she has been through in the last two years. I still catch myself continuing to ask God why? Will we ever know why kids, or anybody for that fact, have to go through the pain, physically and emotionally, that cancer takes on a person’s life. There is no reason a child should have to go through the pain, suffering, and fight just to have the chance to live like a normal little kid. All my little Ady should know is how to dance around the living room like a princess with her hair as long as Rapunzel, with not a care in this world. But instead her little spirit and body had to endure losing all her hair, having surgeries, being pumped full of nasty drugs, going through pain that no adult should even have to feel from procedures, simply to save her life. She has had to answer to questions, endure comments, and stares from kids at school to adults at the grocery store. But in the end we have her here, and she is fighting – not just fighting, but kicking this cancer out of her world!
