Thank you for your support

Tomorrow is the day we have been waiting for. We walk in memory of our sweet and sassy Sophia Alexandra. May you feel her spirit as you run and walk through the zoo. Her most favorite place to be. Raising money for her most favorite animal…the gorillas…we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for supporting and loving us. Thank you all for your very generous donations. We love you all just as much. We have close to 150 walkers/ runners which includes our vitural runners who weren’t able to make it to the zoo but will still walk with Team Sophia. We feel so very blessed to have all of you in our lives. Thank you again

Please post pictures on Facebook or email or text them to us as you walk through the zoo. We will post them to our blog and share them with the world.  Share a piece of Sophia. Share a piece of how she has touched each and everyone of us. And how she has changed and continue to change us and the world.

Gifts from God

Sometimes in my quiet moments I receive messages from Sophia that don’t seem to make sense at the time or I think they mean one thing and it turns out to be something a little different.  Well a few months ago I kept hearing “gift from god” I knew it could only mean one thing. That of course Sophia was a Gift from God. That couldn’t be any more truer. A gift to teach us so many lessons in just a few short years. Lessons that even those that never met her will take with them for the rest of their lives. Lessons we will all pass along to others. 

Well tonight Giovanna and I were watching a movie where they were talking about the meaning of their names. This of course peaked her interest about our names.  We looked up Sophia and it said it was a biblical name which means wisdom. How intersting.  We looked up Giovanna which is an italian name which means gift from God. Those same exact words that I heard in my quiet moments from Sophia. It reminded me that my girls are amazing gifts from God. I  am so grateful for these two beautiful gifts that God could have ever given me. I am grateful for the lessons both my girls teach me.  I am grateful for God choosing me as their mom. 

Enjoy and treasure each moment with your families and friends.  Enjoy the little as well as the big moments. Enjoy those amazing gifts from God. 

Happy Easter

Happy Easter to our little bunny. Easter definately isn’t the same with out you.  But my goodness you let us know you are right here with us. Your chair has been going off since 1am. Which btw needs new batteries. I was looking through my pocketbook for my lipgloss and I found a hair clip that you wore on your last Easter with us. Thank you for that little present. I am wearing it with much joy today. Giovanna was so excited when she found her penny from heaven this morning. We love you so. Enjoy this most beautiful Easter.  We know that you will be right here celebrating with us. Love you love you
