A very touching gift

19 Mar

We came home to a package on our door step today and were completely touched by the present inside. Kerry’s step-mom lost her battle with cancer in December 2006 and today Baby V received a gift from her. Erin, Kerry’s sister, sent us the nice package and the card let us know that Terri had worked on this as a surprise for Kerry and his future child. Somehow she knew! We both could not believe that she had done this (Kerry still has the blanket she made him many years ago). We decided it would look great hanging in the nursery:

I remember when I first met Terri that we got a good laugh about the similar names (Terri, Kerry, Cory and Torey) and anytime someone mistakenly calls me or Kerry ‘Terry’ I think of her.

Also, in the package was some very cute clothes from Aunt Erin and Uncle Cory and a whole set of shoes. Baby V has tennis shoes, pink shoes, mary janes and the cutest pair of sparkly baby converse.
