I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

Day 6

Over the past many years I have met many families who have been blessed
with a child who has Down syndrome.
I have noticed something that all these families have in common
They're Incredible!
I don't necessarily think that these children are sent to incredible families,
I think the child makes the family incredible.
 (Now I am NOT saying that I'm incredible in any way),
But I will say that my children are pretty awesome and we as a family have
have bonded together to make incredible things happen.
Oh how we needed Kristen in our lives.
We would not be the family or the people we are today without her.

To all my peeps...

You're Incredible!
