It's 6:00 a.m., and four year old Amanda shuffles into her parent's bedroom, where she finds Daddy sleeping in what normally is Mommy's spot. She innocently wakes him up from a deep sleep "Daddy ... can you make me pancakes?" Daddy replies "Yes, sure honey."
Neither Amanda nor Daddy have their normal energetic smile. Not because they were tired, but because Mommy didn't make it home last night. Cancer unexpectedly took her.
Now "Daddy" must find a way to care for three small children while holding down a new executive position within his company.
For the moment, making pancakes is the one thing that keeps their family together.
