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...

More Easter and Orphan Spotlight

I am pretty sure we celebrated Easter all week.
Richard's family always has their party and egg hunt on Saturday.
Sunday in the big day for my family. 
My parents have always had Easter dinner at their home followed by
an Easter egg hunt.  My dad started putting quarters in all of the eggs 
when my children were little. Now my mom continues to do the same thing
for the great grandchildren. All of the kids ended up with many quarters.
I love the fun family traditions that both of our families have.

find a family very soon.
She needs a family NOW.
