A Very Special Visit

Just the other day we had a very special visit from our friends Kimberly and Matt. Kimberly used to do respite care for us and worked with Faith for about 3 1/2 years. They developed a very special relationship. Kimberly is the one who helped Faith make a very special gift for us - our "I love you stinky face" ceramic mug. It was also Kimberly who made Faith think her last name was spelled R-O-C-K-S because they would practice spelling Faith Rocks!

While we were happy for Kimberly's fiance finding a job in her home state of Kansas last summer, we were very sad to see her go. After moving back to Kansas, Kimberly found her dream job in early childhood education and she and Matt got married.

Throughout the year we have kept in contact with them through SKYPE. Sometimes our SKYPE sessions are over an hour long and Faith and Kimberly found a way to play hide and seek over the computer. And then when its time to say goodbye, Faith cries and tells me how much she misses Kimberly. I tell her I understand how she feels.

Matt and Kimberly, along with the newest addition to their family - an 11-week old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy named Lanie, recently traveled up here to North Dakota. While they were here visiting, Faith kept a close eye on the puppy who was busy sniffing around our whole apartment. After they left, Faith said, "oh I just love that puppy." And of course now she asks, when is Kimberly coming back over?
