Does your first child seem the most special? At this time in my life, YES!
Delivered by c-sect in the morning We didn't know ahead of time if it was a boy or girl
Oh how I wanted a girl I didn't come get my senses until late afternoon But all the pain from surgery went away once I held her God had truly blessed me with a perfect, precious
little girl You think you know might have known TRUE LOVE throughout your life... You do once you hold your first child
So, off we go to continue with life But as a MOM
Kristin was a wonderful child Never sick, never clingy So much fun at all the new things babies slowly learn
I was able to be a stay at home mom her first couple of years That is important, you don't miss a thing Her first day of school, I cried and cried I was working then she looked so small and innocent having to leave her with a teacher
that I didn't know in that big classroom
Honor student all the way Every year I went to her end of year program She ALWAYS got several certificates Highest average, highest scores, honor roll I still have them all She was a cheerleader for 5 years She saved everything I still have all her trophies
I was divorced from Kristin's dad, Danny, when she was 4.
I remarried the next year to her step dad Todd.
We had been married for 10 years at the time of Kristin's accident.
I also had two more children, Ashley and Jake,
with my husband Todd. Three precious kids that I have.
All with separate personalities. Kristin went with me when I had my sonogram
to find out the sex of Jake. She thought I was crazy because I got so
emotional when they said "its a boy".
I wanted a boy so bad after 2 wonderful girls.
Before you know it.. high school Endless phone calls, BOYS, prom, learners license, first dates, first heartbreaks
We were always mother and child with an unbreakable bond But as she matured, we became close friends too Talked about EVERYTHING Boys, school, prom, graduation, gossip, college, advise
was a typical teenager, with a special halo
Never in trouble, always helping with chores
Never past her curfew, she called me to
always let me know where she was
She would just call me to chit chat when
she was at her dad's house
Exceeding in school as usual
Kristin joined many clubs at school
She would stay afterwards to help with projects
Decorate for prom,
A great help with her two younger siblings
She had more friends than you could imagine the biggest smile you ever seen It would light up a room and your day
A junior in school
3rd year on the color guard for the school band
She was now a beautiful young woman
with her entire life ahead of her
We were starting to discuss college
Looking at prom dresses for her first junior prom
at her school. She had went to prom the year before while
she was in the 10th grade to another school with
her boyfriend at the time, Michael. He has since married and named
his first born baby girl after Kristin.
