We had other visitor for New Years, Brain and Austyn flew in to spend a few days with us. This was not just a visit, they had hoped Brian would find a job here and they would be able to move before the baby come. It was always Austyn’s desire to live close to us while her children were small.
The trip was successful, they returned to Anchorage with a job offer in hand. Plans were made. Austyn would fly in and Brian would load the jeep and trailer on the ferry for a nine day’s journey. By the middle of February they were both here, safe and sound. Austyn was 7 months pregnant. Doctors needed to be found, hospitals toured and birthing classes attended. There were two short months left to prepare for Liam Barrington Ford.
