This is the Schneider-Farris Family's Blog. Keep up with what we are doing by logging into this site regularly! (The reason this site is called "Tragedy and Triumph" is that when I first founded this site, my husband, Dan, had been in a horrible accident, and he recovered. His recovery was a miracle! Go back to the 2005 archives to read our story.)

Two and a half years ago....

Two and a half years ago, the world seemed to end for our family....

Two and a half years ago, people came forward from all kinds of backgrounds to help my family in any way they could.

Two and a half years ago, extended family traveled to Colorado to help us in our time of great need.

Two and a half years ago I held my children in my arms and cried.

Two and a half years ago people from all over the world prayed for a miracle and Dan lived.....

Two and a half years ago.....WOW!
