Hi, I'm Taylor's Aunt Melanie and I started this blog to share Taylor's journey to recovery. I personally have been completely amazed and in awe of all the wonderful friends who have come together to support Taylor and his family. His room is constantly filled with visitors from high school, his Youth group, his neighborhood and even his elementary school friends.  Melissa and Brad and our whole family are so humbled by the outpouring of support from all of you. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

This blog will be our hub where you can find the most up to date status on Taylor's progress. Please sign up to receive updates via email. Now, I know, at least for some of you out there, that this blogging thing might be over your head and you don't understand how to set up a Google account so you can make a comment, bla, bla, bla. Well, this is your chance to learn! Get yourself set up! Or better yet, get a teenager to help you! You'll be so glad you did.

Blessings to you all,
Aunt Melanie


  1. Um, well... I think I'll be the first to go ahead and make a comment. Taylor, I love you so much! I know it's going to be a long road, and there will be many bumps along the way, but YOU WILL get through this. We are here for you every step of the way. Pinky promise!

  2. "Fear you not; for I am with you: be not dismayed; for I am your God: I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness.". ~Isaiah 41:10~

    Keeping you in our prayers, Taylor!

  3. "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the LORD your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”. ~Deuteronomy 31:6~

    Danielle and I put your name on our prayer list at school, Taylor! God Bless you always!!
