Another Christi Scrapping Page

It's amazing how vividly I still remember this, now over five years later. While I didn't realize it at the time, the poor little thing must have been so scared and terrified, just like we were. I remember Shayne making the two hour drive to Columbus with tears streaming down his face. I do find comfort in believing that Christi always knew that she would never be alone and that she was very loved.

I have no doubt that Christi knew, and still knows, how very, very, very loved she is. You did all that you could for her-- and more.

I continue to be amazed at her depth at such a young age. The drawings are amazing and the words she had you write down express wisdom far beyond her years.

I am thinking of you all and sending loads of love,
Olivia

Christi's scrapbook pages are so special! Thank you for sharing them with us! Thinking of your family as I am headed to your part of the country for my cousin's wedding in Columbus. Will be sending prayers your way from nearby!

Rally On!

I love how Christi put a heart in every picture! The love that surrounded her was evident.

I know it is hard to review these scrapbook pages, but I believe sometimes the hurt we feel is okay. It always makes me feel really close to my daughter to remember her diagnosis and the pain that accompanied it. That must sound crazy. The pain is so much of who I am, unfortunately. It makes me sad to hear about Shayne crying. When my husband started crying during diagnosis...well, there are no words to describe how I felt. They had just told us the first of many many terrible things...that she was blind. To see him crumble was more than I could bear. We would later find out that she would live life with multiple daily seizures and severe retardation. You would never know anything was wrong by looking at her...she looked perfect.

I am sorry to have gone on about my daughter, your post struck a nerve. I can identify with your pain and I so know it is such a terrible place to be.

My belief is that God did not give our children these terrible ailments, but He chooses to create a "purpose." God cried with you through this ordeal, but he was able, through your faith, to create a world..."Christi's world" to touch an amazing number of people. It will never make it right, but somehow I try to find comfort in the fact that the pain and suffering that Christi went through somehow breached the hearts of people who may have never been touched by faith.

Your love radiates from your words. Christi was truly an amazing person. I check her site daily and pray for your family.

Love,

Christi was blessed to have the two most wondeful parents any child could wish for.

That had to bring her great comfort and security.

Thanks again for sharing some of her scrapbooking pages with us. Very genereous of you as always!

Love and prayers for always,
Heather

More thanks for sharing these pages.

What a treasure chest of memories you have. I know it would be better to have Christi, yet I hope you do find comfort in the words and pictures she left behind.

Shayla, Hive are the pits. However, they do go away, and then we can once again know how good it is to be without them.
