Life was good for my husband, Tim, and me in the fall of 2007. We managed a small company Tim had founded. He provided medical publishing services for clients and I provided executive and federal representation services for non-profit public health organizations. We were able not only to support ourselves well, but also provide critical financial support for Tim’s 26 year old daughter who is severely learning-disabled. I, and we, had no other children.
