Merry Christmas Bri!

For Christmas this year, Isaac (okay, well his parents helped a little bit), came up with an idea (with the help of a good friend) for a gift for his birthmom, Bri. We decided to buy a charm bracelet with a charm and to buy a new charm each year. Each new charm will represent something that has been going on in Isaac's life during that last year. We plan to buy a charm and send it to Bri until Isaac turns 18, at which point, he can choose to continue the tradition or not.

For the first year, we bought a charm with the letter "I" on it. Joan and Bri were kind enough to send us a photo of the bracelet. I think the bracelet looks great on her, but more than that, doesn't Bri herself look fantastic!?!?

Many of you have asked me how Bri is doing. Maybe some day I'll talk her into doing a post herself and updating all of you. For now I can tell you that she is busy taking college classes, working, and overall, doing great! Bri gave up an entire year of her life to give Isaac life, and we are so glad she did as he has put an exclamation mark on the lives of the Kit. family!

We love you Bri!
