7-Day Countdown to Our Mom’s Murphys Don’t Quit Book Release on October 5th!
A post from each of the SEVEN Murphy Kids, AKA SLESKRM — Sam, Lauren, Erin, Shannon, Kelsey, Ryan & Maggie – and our Dad (Lauren and our Dad will post together)
Countdown – 6 Days until the Murphys Don’t Quit Book Release!
Today’s Post is from: Ryan
Murphy Kid Order/Number: I am the second youngest of 7 and only boy of the family.
Quick background: I am 22 years old and wrapping up my final year at Mizzou. In the spring, I will be starting my first big boy job in finance.
Favorite part of the book: My favorite part of this book is being able to share Lauren’s story with those who I’ve grown close with over the years that were not familiar with Lauren’s journey.
I was 12 years old when I was told my sister had a portion of her brain removed.
I was scared, confused, and unsure of what would come next. However, during all of this I never felt alone. Perhaps that is an indication to the family that my mother and father had built over these years. I was fortunate enough to have a vast support system to rely on for the several months following my sister’s accident. This book is a testament to all that my family has gone through on this long road to recovery. I am incredibly proud of both Lauren and my mother for all that they have accomplished since that fateful day. I often find myself in times of despair and look to those two as a sign to keep moving forward, after all Murphys Don’t Quit!
