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. I've contemplated on many occasions rather I should quit this blog or not. Each time I am inspired that I should not. 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! This I know. Our family continues to live and to love and this is our story...

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

To whoever has donated to Maribel's adoption fund.
$1195.00 has been raised since November 1st.
She now has $2498.50 available toward her adoption.
We all know that every dollar raised brings her one step 
closer to finding her family. 
Hopefully this will be her last 
Thanksgiving without
a family.

I couldn't post without another picture of Kristen.
This her in 2007 waiting for dinner to be served. She doesn't look so happy in the 
first picture. However, she was soon laughing her guts out,
as you can see in the second picture, Kamie has just been hit with a napkin.
Yup, that was Kristen sitting across the table throwing things at Kamie.
I just noticed everyone else has grape juice, except Kristen,
she has a tall glass of milk.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone
