Challenging Times

Well, most of you who are reading this are probably tired of seeing/reading "Laryngo...what?" from the "artist formely known as Jordon and Sara Roberts Family". ( Unfortunately, since that last posting, the Jordon and Sara Roberts Family has taken a tragic detour and now that title is a misnomer, while Jordon's Blog, is a more accurate indication of the "family" in which I currently reside.

I'll try to explain in as delicate a manner as I can, and if any humor is expressed, it is really done as a coping mechanism, because the whole situation has been incredibly difficult for everyone involved. In March, Sara and I seperated and Sara moved up to Alpine, UT where she has bought a home for her and the kids. At the beginning of May I moved out to Keokuk, IA to begin a new professional (and personal) life working at a private boarding school for troubled teens. We are currently finalizing a divorce, and learning how to live our lives as singles again...Sara with our beautiful children, Aryn and Quinn, and me with my hundred or so troubled young men.

We are both really trying to rely on the healing power of our Savior to heal our hearts and spirits, in the ways that we need to be healed. I am trying to figure out how to be a good long-distance Dad with limited opportunities to see my kids. Sara is trying to figure out how to be a stay-at-home devoted Mother without the full-time support of a spouse. She is probably doing a better job than I am, but I will try to get out to see the kids once a month or so. This blog will serve to keep everyone posted as to their growth, as well as an occasional note to let you know how my single Midwest living is going. Please keep in touch. Love, Jordon

Thanks for the new blog. We'll be happy to get updates from you and see how our wonderful and niece and nephew are growing. Cute picture on the menu bar--we can definitely see you in Aryn!

All our love,
Dane and Emily

Hi Jordon!

I am sorry to hear that; I am in shock. I have been checking your blog, but I haven't see anything updated for awhile and meanwhile I had thought that you both were busy with a new born baby and new place and job. I am hurting for your family. Your Quinn is handsome. Aryn is more beautiful. I hope everything goes well. I miss and love your family so much even though your family is far away; but still my good neighbors are in my heart. Forgive me if I have any mistakes. Thanks Denise. Our email-
