Soothing New Life

by Beth Fultz It took a week to prepare our home for Kayli and our eldest daughter, Emily, to visit from Massachusetts. Kayli, our soon to be officially adopted granddaughter, grandkid #4, is 8 months old, with a few health issues including being partially blind, and dependency on a feeding tube. I wanted the house to be immaculate, mopped and scrubbed so that our usual out of whack home would not be a hindrance to her health and enjoyment for the five day stay. Once they arrived however, the house was re-arranged back to clutter in about just less than…
