I was familiar with Karen Gaffney before, but today I was compelled to see her story again. It was just one of those days that I wanted to feel some hope. Rather, I should say that I NEEDED to feel some hope. Quinn was giggling to herself today and I so loved seeing her do this - it melted my heart. I was just thinking about how beautiful she is, and then it got me thinking about her future (drat I hate those fears that come in at the most inappropriate moment). I just was drawn to Karen's story. I needed to see the positive today. Karen gave me that.
I unfortunately missed seeing Karen in person recently; she came to our area for a number of presentations. I hope one day I do have the honor of meeting her. I cried such happy tears watching these clips. Hopefully someday Quinn will bring other parents a similar hope that I feel from Karen's story. God bless you, Karen. You don't have any idea how much you helped me today.
