Katherine Anne was born on June 26, 2006. Shortly after her birth...she was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia associated with the 22q chromosomal deletion. Kate was a trooper...endured 4 open heart surgeries, 5 heart catherizations and spent over 150 days in the hospital. On January 15, 2008, her heart gave out and she passed into her Heavenly Father's Arms. During her 568 days here on Earth...she was always smiling. We miss her immensely...but rejoice in her new pain-free Eternal Home.
Welcome to our blog...and thanks for sharing in our journey through this amazing ride called life! We are blessed...in many ways by our loving Savior. It is our hope and prayer...that this blog might bring you a little laughter...a little encouragement...a little hope...or a little of whatever you need to help you out today!
Seth is our totally amazing 9 year old! He brings us nothing but complete joy. He loves soccer and basketball, school (especially reading and math), playing with friends and collecting any type of sports card. He excels in school in all areas and usually is a great big brother. He is a great kid with a super heart.
Grant is our "on the go" 4 year old! Grant loves to explore...and wants to be outside all the time. If he can't be outside, he loves to play Wii, board games and with his monster trucks. He wants more than anything to be big like Seth. He can make me laugh on almost a daily basis...and his hugs beat no other.
I'm a very lucky stay at home mom. I have a degree in elementary education...have spent many years in youth ministry...but love just hanging out with Seth and Grant right now and honored to be the director of Kate's Kart. I have been married to the most amazing, caring man for 11 years.
