Tribute to my Karma

Meet Karma, When the doctor told me I would have to deliver at 31 weeks the only name my husband and I wanted to name her was Karma ( she is our Good Karma )our Lil peanut weighed in a 2lbs. 13oz. 16 in. long her middle name is Orenda ( like Brenda but with an O ) it means Magical One ( Iroquois Indian) She was a fighter from day 1 now our Darling Girl is 13 and almost taller than me!!

At 9 days old she was weighing in at a whopping 3lbs even. She was the exact same length as her sisters braid.

We got to take her home 4 days before Mother's day ( What a WONDERFUL GIFT FOR ME ) this was her first visit straight from the hospital to visit her Grandpa Chess. My father in law had MS and wasn't able to visit her at the hospital it was just to hard of a trip for him to make so Tim and I wanted him to be the first visit we made. This was a Happy moment for Tim to be able to hand his dad our Lil peanut.

Karma at 4 loved being a Princesses even with her Kool Aid Mustache

This is Karma today at 13. No more Lil peanut, I thank God every day for her survival she has been our piece of Good Karma. She recently graduated the 6th grade and what better way for everyone to meet her. This is my tribute to her. She is the sweetest person I know, with the kindest heart a person can ever have ( she gets that from her dad ) She thinks of others before she thinks of herself. I could go on for day's ( yes I know I'm Bragging sorry my love for her tends to overflow.)

Her President's award for Academic Achievement 2009 given to her at her 6th grade Graduation.

Her Certificate's - Sixth grade Diploma, Certificate of Scholastic Achievement ( 4 quarters on Honor Roll, 4th Quarter Honor Roll, Yearly and Quarter Extra Effort Award ( for helping tutor kids)

Karma and her BF Laura. They have been 2 peas in a pod since Daisey Scouts.
