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...

orphan spotlight day 12

Isn't he a little cutie

This past 2 weeks, as I have visited Reece's Rainbow daily,
each time I walk away with tears in my eyes.
I cannot believe these precious children have been forgotten.
They are definitely hidden angels.
I cannot believe the lives they lead.
I wish I could hug each one of them and tell them how precious they are.
I can't. 
The only thing I can do at this point is to pray for them and keep sharing
their cute little faces.
My mom doesn't even want to look at my blog because it is too sad for her.
I know with my whole heart that children with Down syndrome are the
most precious on this earth. I know because I have one. 
Kristen has changed my life.
She has been gone for almost 20 months and she continues
to inspire and touch the lives of many.
For those who might be wondering
if a life with Down syndrome is worth living.
YES it is.
It is a life worth celebrating.
