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...

Hidden Angels: American families saving children with Down syndrome

This is a must see. My husband has watched this news segment at least 3 times. His heart stops every time they show the girls who have Down syndrome who are in the institution.
I keep telling him that we need to go and save Catherine!
I had the opportunity to meet Kecia  this past May. I have followed her adoption story for months. You can visit her blog here. Mia is one blessed little girl.

Wonder of we were to travel together. Would that be something?

Go get Catherine!!!

Loved watching that news segment, but it was definitely sad to see all those precious children waiting.
