We were at the Donate Life 5K. Its one of my favorite pictures of them. Even though he was having a hard time that day, he was still so excited to be there. (and way to stubborn to let us push him in a wheelchair) It took us a loooong time to finish the 5K because we had to take breaks so he could rest, but he was so excited that he finished it.

the call for his new heart.
We've all seen the picture going around on Facebook. The one with the woman and her 2 kids smiling in front of her husband lying in his casket. The photo that she's using to try to raise awareness of addiction and what it did to her family.
I understand her reasoning behind posting it. And I think its great that she's trying to use her nightmare to bring more awareness to a problem facing many people.
However, I don't totally agree with it. I refused to let anyone take pictures of Tin Man at his wake or his funeral. I wanted people to remember him for the man he was and not what he looked like laying there. I didn't want that picture somehow ending up back at my kids. No child should have to relive that moment through pictures.

My story is enough. These pictures of my kids with their dad are enough.
