Katie,
You and baby Catherine are so beautiful! I smiled out loud when I saw Libby (with her bountiful belly!) and you with your sweet baby girl! Your belly is filled with song and I can hear it from here!

Katie, when God made you he broke the mold, and I'm sure the same is true for little Catherine. The kind of beauty, strength and faith that I read in your letters is just so rare and so humbling. You are following in Donna's footsteps because you are glorifying God so beautifully with your words, attitudes, faith and your courageous actions during this difficult, difficult time. I wish I could hug your necks right now. Love you and Donnie and Catherine so much! Tiffany

I live in Richmond 2 and I was so amazed when I came across your blog via PinksandBlues and was so heartbroken to hear of little Catherine and then I read your entries and I say "Thank You" for your unwaivering trust in our lord and for you and your husband's strength in your young marriage and with each other. God has a reason for everything and though Catherine's path may be difficult at times or even short, her life will provide meaning and promise in a way only He could understand.
God Bless.....Carol Reynolds (Glen Allen, VA www.creys.blogspot.com)

Hey Katie,
Abe told me about your blog. You are so strong!! We are expecting too. It's due Sept. 8....I can't imagine going through what you are having to go through. You and your family will be in our prayers. My friend always tells me that God will not give you more than you can handle. You are already such an amazing mother!

Katie, I went over to Robyns house last night and mom and her told me about your blog. I read it and you amaze me. I always knew you were a smart and strong women but the grace you are handling this situation is amazing. No matter what this is gods plan for you and even though it doesnt seem right there is a reason. I just wanted you to know that you are an inspiration to not only me but everyone eles who knows you and who will read this. Catherine is very lucky to have you for a mom. If you need anything all you have to do is ask. You, Donnie and Catherine are in my prayers. Kristy Rayside-Grissom

I found your blog through Kristy's. And I just wanted to tell you that I think you are wonderful. And, what a gift this blog is to the world. It must take incredible courage to write these letters, and you do it with grace and so much love. I will be praying for you, your family, and especially little Catherine every day.

Katie,
You radiate the light of the Lord. Your steadfast faith is truly inspiring. God will walk beside you through this journey. He will pick you up and carry you if you happen to fall. You will be okay if you continue to derive your strength from Him. God bless you and your family as you continue on this journey.
