Kaitlyn entered our world on May 22, 2012. I watched her lock eyes with her mother, and the two souls bonded in a familiar and forever love. Her eyes were wide open, proving her to be an alert child, ready to take on the challenges of life. As her grandmother, I watched Kaitlyn excel in all her childhood developmental milestones. When Kaitlyn approached five years old, she was diagnosed with a rare cancerous tumor in her brain stem referred to as DIPG. This book is a tribute to her short and meaningful life. It highlights the final seven months of her physical existence as we celebrated every day with her and prepared for her death. It includes "Kaitlyn Gems," the words I recall her saying, which proved she was a wise soul. The book validates that a short life, when filled with love, is meaningful.
