Hi, I’m Kristine, but you can call me Cora’s Mom.

This blog started as my pregnancy journal. It had a different name (Instructions Not Included) and I didn’t post much.

Fast forward to December 2009. Cora died in my arms suddenly and unexpectedly. I found strength and healing through writing.

I found that through this blog, Cora lived on.

Her story and my story are changing.

This is the place where Cora lives forever.

Her story is sad, but it’s also full of love, kindness and hope. It didn’t end in December, 2009. In many ways, it’s just begun. She saves lives now.

This is the place where she is part of my present. It’s also turned into my little place to write about my grief, my work and anything that fits my whimsy.

Cora’s daddy and I currently live in Indianapolis with our three dogs. We are still happily married, but because this blog is completely told from my viewpoint, I respect his privacy and the privacy of other friends and family members.
