2008 Beautifully summed up Kenzie, just perfect. I have been so blessed to walk last year with you through it all, and look forward to walking with you this year too. I love the carved initials on the tree. Is this in your yard or somewhere close to you? It is perfect and it looks like God's eye is watching over it from right above. I love you guys and am right beside you this year 2009. God Bless you all.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

Speechless. Your posts always move me and touch my heart deeply. Thank you - what a blessing and what a gift.

I don't know how I could have made it through 2008 without you. Thank you for sharing your journey and strength. I'm so thankful for you.

I have been reading your blog for awhile now but never commented. I stumbled upon your blog sometime before Maddox was born. I have followed a few of the blogs from women that have had babies with Trisomy 18. All of your stories are amazing and what an inspiration you all are. I have not had a baby with Trisomy 18 but I did have a baby diagnosed with cystic fibrois when he was 2 weeks old. Anyway I hope 2009 brings you much happiness and congratulations on the birth of your little girl...she is precious!
you said it sista!! Love you!

May 2009 bring your family fewer tears, more smiles and many, many Blessings! You and Dusty have been such an inspiration to so many Kenzie and such wonderful tools for God to show his Mercy, Grace and Love through. I feel blessed myself to know you and to have had the opportunity to pray for your family.

Thank you. Theta love, Betsy
Praying for your family as we begin this new year...
