A few days ago, someone came into our home, while we were sleeping and stole my Macbook

Toby bought it for me 3 years ago for my birthday, and I loved it...I had begun to use it as my personal filing system

It had everything on it...all my pictures, all the videos I had taken of Lucy since she came home, all our passwords, all my inspiration files, all my recipe files

I just can't get over it

I can't get over the fact that someone was in OUR home while we were sleeping
I just can't get over the fact that someone stole MY memories~


  1. Oh Dawn, I am so sorry. How awful that someone would do this to your family. How did they get into your home? When I was young our home was broken into 3 times over a span of a couple years and the violation is something that is very hard to get over. Knowing a stranger had gone through our things was so wrong. I am so sorry that your Mac has been taken and all your memories. Do they have any leads on who did this? Hugs girl..thinking of you and praying they find this creep and he gets what's coming to him/her.

  2. I can't belive this could happen and no one heard a sound. that scares me sooo much. you know this happened to Hockey and Hairbows a few months back. This is just so frightening to me. I am so sorry for you guys and I will be praying for peace and for answers. I am so so sorry Dawn. Praying now!

  3. That totally sucks! I don't know how someone could be so desperate and mean. Hoping and praying you find the creeps and your memories are returned to you.

  4. So sorry to hear what happened. I hope they catch whoever did it and that you get it back, Cindy

  5. oh my gosh! This is sooo horrible. I'm so sorry. I'm really, really glad everyone is okay. I can't imagine the feeling of that kind of violation.

    Our greater neighborhood had a rash of break-ins that were very similar. They would break in through the garage door and take any belongings that were downstairs and in easy sight. Just so frightening.

    I hope they find your macbook and arrest this person soon!!

  6. Oh Dawn ~ I am SO sorry to read this ~ my heart is breaking for you.
    I hope the person is caught and your mac gets returned to you. {{hug}}

  7. Oh Dawn I am so sorry. This happend to us this past April 30, 2011. They came in while our whole famlily was sleeping through our kitchen window and stole my purse, hubby phone and wallet, 3 of our laptops and my car. It was horrible and it took a long time to figure it all out but feeling violated never went away. They were in our room while we slept stealing our laptop upstairs-- I still am not over that. It is such a personal violation and I dont think you can imagine how it feels until it happenes to you. It is horrible. I am so sorry you had to deal with this. I will pray for comfort for you. Plain and simple-- this sucks. Lock up your house and turn on your alarm. Our false sense of secutity-- we live ina nice area-- nice families etc-- that is now gone. We lock everything and I am now suspicious of everyone.

    You are in my prayers!

    Christy :)

  8. Oh man.... that is so scary!!! I'm sorry that happened to you! Some people are such total creeps, I just don't get it! :(

  9. Dawn -- I am so very sorry that happened! That is scary and so annoying too!


  10. That is terrible. I'm so sad for you. Scary that someone could be in your house - I love my dogs for that reason alone!!! I'm so hoping you have them backed up or a way to retrieve them.

  11. What? That is just unbelievable. I am so sorry! Oh goodness. I hope that you all are feeling safe and whole.

  12. dawn....i'm so sorry. it happened to us many years ago right after christmas. i understand that sense of violation and the feeling of not wanting to be in your own home and at the same time not wanting to leave it. i was so angry that someone could do this to us and take away our sense of home and security.
    we got our dog and an alarm system the next day. the only item he got was our video camera which was still under the christmas tree. my son's ( who was only 8 at the time) biggest concern was that the robber was watching our christmas videos!!! we assured him that was not the case. lol i promise the feelings will change and you will feel secure just takes time. feel free to email me if you want to share. fondly.......fanci

  13. WOW!!! So sorry for your loss. Is there anyway to find it? Not sure what you had, but I know sometimes, in case your laptop gets lost you can find it, I heard this in the news awhile back and I know, my computers have that now. Praying it will be recovered!!!!!!!
