Thank you so much for all that you do for the mission and everyone who reads your stories. It has been a pleasure getting to know you and I look forward to working with you in the future!
Karri, thank you for all that you do for both MOD and the SHARE site! Your girls' story is inspiring to many families. You're a wonderful advocate and Mom! Keep on sharing:) I have no doubt that you'll be a wonderful asset and resource for that second dream job down the road.
I love knowing a little more about all of you guys! Karri, I'm sure you have touched so many lives in all of the years you've been sharing. Mom is such an important job and your kids got lucky with you in that position ❤️
There is so much to love about you. Your heart, your passion, your sense humor. You make me want to do more, be more.
Thank you for being you.
