  14. Christine,

    I'm so sorry for your loss and I'm praying for you now. I've lurked for a long time. Your family is truly an inspiration. We have 3 bio. children and are adopting number 4, so we hope to some day have a house full like you. I love your honesty, your dedication, and your strength.

    I lost my mom 5 years ago so I understand the pain of losing a beloved parent. He will live on in the legacy he created with his children and grandchildren. May you feel God's perfect peace right now.

    Blessings,
    Kathie from Georgia

  19. I'm so sorry. It seems that just the other day you posted a picture of you and your father planning a camping trip. Life can certainly change in a matter of seconds.
    I hope you feel at peace and know that someday you will be reunited in a much more beautiful place.
