A Wolf: in two perspectives

In grade school I drew a green tree with purple and orange hearts for leaves. We were suppose to draw brown trees with green leaves. The art teacher said, “That’s not right.” I had forgotten that story. My mom reminded me of it a few days before she died.

I’m still a little intimidated not doing it right. I’m glad Thorin isn’t.

  2. Kari, I read the article which was published on huffington post (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/kari-wagnerpeck/how-i-told-my-7-year-old-son-he-has-down-syndrome_b_4392083.html) . I wanted to tell you that you’re a serious champion, along with your husband. I admire you two.

    I love to read, love to imagine how people feel, you’re son would be my favorite character out of any book. He is amazing, and I feel like everything is a manifestation of what we really are. You’re son is pure love. So happy.

    I cried while reading the article by just how in love with life your son is. I think everybody has a lesson or two to learn from him. Sometimes we have to un-learn things in order to appreciate it all. I hope this message reaches you in some way.

    • Well you message made me tear up. Thank you! You will be happy to know that I will be publishing a book in May, 2017 title Not Always Happy and the it’s about Thorin of course:) Thank you for reading!
