My Name Is Snickerdoodle: Butterfly

{With permission from my sister in law} I wanted to share with you something special that we received at Christmas time. Christmas Eve we were given a book. And not just any book. A children's book that Ian's aunt wrote about our little niece, Sophia. Today little Sophia would have turn one year old. His aunt Analee has always been a positive influence in our loves and I just love her to bits. Along with being a fabulous person she is also a very talented writer. When our niece passed, she was {highly} inspired to write this wonderful story about the sweetest little caterpillar and her life. She also had a family friend create beautiful illustrations for it. Great things have come together with the help from above to get this book published so I wanted to share it with all of you. If you have anyone in your life that has suffered in any way, particularly with medical issues, this book could shed some beautiful light into their life and those around them. You can purchase the book here.

  3. Sweet Amy-you are too kind. I love you too. Today my heart is full and aches at the same time, perhaps just so full it feels as though it will burst. I am blessed to have been part of Sophia's story in some small way. Hope your little one is doing better. You and Ian give each other a hug for me. Much love--

  6. I just read it for the first time and it is a beautiful story. Analee is so fantastic. The picture of Sophia at the end is the only one I have really seen that almost shows all of her. What a sweet little princess. She is loved!!!
