2 years ago today was the worst day of our lives - the day we found out that Karinne would never come home to live with us.  You can read more about that day by clicking here.

I am finding myself at a loss for words.  I want to write something new that describes my emotions today on this difficult anniversary.  But I can't find the words and don't have the time to take to find them.  But I wanted to post something today, so here it is.

The coming of this December has held many emotions for me as I recall December of 2009.  The coming of the Christmas season just isn't the same as it always was for me - before the worst day of our lives....  As we put up decorations, attend the children's Christmas programs, buy gifts, and prepare for family gatherings - I can't help but recall the pain of all of those things that year after we found out the bad news.  I hope that eventually, December will return to its intended beauty and that the pain associated with this day will lessen over time.  

Miss you and Love you SO MUCH Karinne!


  1. We found out on November 30th about Eli. So, I can understand how you feel. Love and hugs to you!

  2. I know what you mean...someone asked me today if I had a different perspective on Christmas now. Unfortunately I do and it's not one I hope to keep. It's painful coming into a time when everyone wants to celebrate and my heart is broken. Today is the anniversary of when we buried Rachel.
    thinking of you and Karinne often.
    love, Stacy

  3. I've been feeling the same that the Christmas season is perhaps forever changed for me. Thinking of sweet Karinne! <3 hugs <3

  4. Seems many of us found out in December like you. We found out December 15.

    Lots of love to you.

  5. Praying for you. I know how hard it can be, but i also know that God can pull you through. Praying for strength this season!!!!

  6. Thinking of you Kara, sending hugs
