Christi's 12th Birthday

May 2006, Christi's final birthday - BDAY #9. She had so much fun! I wish we could have an even bigger celebration for all of our friends and family today. Instead I'll go to school, have physical therapy and traction on neck, visit Christi's grave and take mom and Joe to dinner for Mother's Day. I'll make the best of it, but I'd really rather be running around after school picking up a huge cake and piling 30 friends in a limo to go to a water park or something totally insane like that. Hmmmmmm.

6th Birthday, May 2003, Disney World. We flew to and from from the Ronald McDonald House of NYC to make this a wonderful bday celebration - all thanks to very generous friends and community members!

Happy slightly belated birthday, Angel Christi!! I hope the celebration in heaven was huge, because you certainly deserve it!

Ahhhh, I think I miss that little girl as much as you do, Angela, and I've never even met her! I have a daughter the same age as Christi, and we started following Christi's journey a few months before she died.

Happy Birthday sweet Christi! May you have a wonderous day in Heaven celebrating with Jesus!

Thinking of you today Angela, Shane and Shayla. It sounds like you will be keeping busy, and I know you will make the best of it. But I also know how profoundly sad you are at a loss too great for words. I hope Christi's spirit continues to comfort and inspire you. Blessings!

I knew Christi's birthday was this week, but I didn't remember the exact day. I hope you don't mind that were extending the celebration an extra day down here in Texas.

YOu are an inspiration and a role model to me for your grace and continued willingness to grow and reach out to others. Thank you.

Oh how fun to see all these photos, but so sad too knowing that she is not here enjoying her birthdays on earth with her family like she should be! Sending you all lots of hugs during this difficult week {{{{{{{}}}}}}}

I didn't know Christi, in fact I wasn't even involved with children who have cancer then. There is something about Christi that touhes me everytime I see a picture of her. Her smile, her eyes, who knows. God gave Christi to the world so she could change people's hearts. Now that I am involved with these children, there are some that always come into my heart and thoughts and Christi is one of them.
