The family and friends of Deanna and Lucy are uniting to help Deanna get back into school in Colorado.

Coming back to Denver was a difficult decision, as many of you know. However, being here full time with Lucy will be invaluable for us both. There is no doubt that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. Unfortunately, when I left Portland State University, I was leaving a very good thing. I created a bit of acedemic wreckage in Denver, and in order to get back into school here, I have a handful of financial ammends to make first. I owe Metro State almost seven hundred dollars, and then to enroll, I will need to prepay for my first term. Further, my laptop computer is archaic and on the fritz, and I am concerned about what this will mean for my pending school carreer for a number of reasons.

I have recieved a few emails asking what I would like for my upcoming birthday. After putting some thought into some responsible, rather than frivolous requests, this is the best idea that I could come up with: I would like help getting back into school. The good news is that I am half way there: Half way to a degree in Spanish, with an endorsement in Elementary Education. My goal has always been to teach English, and then over the last couple of years, I have been fortunate enough to discover that I also feel passionate about continuing my ongoing work with children.

So, thank you for considering this outside-the-box birthday request. Lucy and I will send updates to all of you as things continue to progress in Colorado. We love you guys!
