|The missing chair.|
So it was out of Ring 4 that someone came in our yard and took Jon's pediatric stroller that we use all the time so we don't have to always take the lift-equipped, deisel-gussling bus. Yes, I was actually stupid enought to sit this valuable piece of our lives in our yard. It was folded up like an umbrella stroller folds and I am thinking that the theives thought that they were stealing a jogging stroller. I have been praying and posting on facebook in hopes that the person would realize what they have and bring it back! Please be praying with us. It was purchased for Vanessa and we passed it on to Jon when Vanessa outgrew it. It seems that insurance will cover most of the replacement costs, especially since Jon needs it. We have actually just been saving the insurance company money and saving us the co-pay money through "hand-me-downs". However, we have been warned that it will take a while to get it approved and ordered so please pray that we get the replacement before Daddy's summer vacation is over. There is never a "good time" to have something like this happen, but having Daddy home to help lift/carry Jon is going to make this problem much more manageable.
This situation has angered so many people, but I'm not angry. I'm disappointed by the realization that people do steal things, even our stuff. I'm frustrated by the inconvenience to us and limits that this puts on Jon's summer activities such as the water park where power wheelchairs are really not a good idea. But what I really want and am praying for is for it to just be returned....afterall, we really are very blessed, Jon wasn't in the chair when it was taken!
