  • Jessica - Oh Karina, that was most beautifully written! You shared your heart with all of us thru this letter and I love you all the more for it. This was better than any card you could write. Your writing style was superb. As your older sister, I love watching you grow into this mature mama who is so calm and a rock. You have slipped so easily into your role as mom, exactly like you were born for it. I hope you have many more babies! They would be a blessing to the world bc of all the love they’d be filled with from you and Brian. You are the most wonderful sister! Love youReplyCancel

Stare and stare! Listen and play, pray for her and point her to Jesus! And keep writing to her…….I love you and know you, a wonderful mother, will have a lifetime of adventures with Olivia!ReplyCancel
