A Message from Katie

Friday, January 14, 2011

Check out the cool card I found in the P.O. box today!


'Course, the inside is even better:

(Jennifer & Deirdre are the two readers who helped me format Katie's book, and Jack is the cover artist.)

Hope this makes you smile as much as I am right now. Good work, everyone.

    This entire story brings me so much hope for this world. Jen, thank you so much for getting the momentum going. Katie is a sweetie and so deserving. :)

  35. Katies story continues to be inspirational. My sister is doing a series of doodles based on the idea that "Girlz Like Star Wars Too". You can see the first image here if you're curious:

    And that Katie is so appreciative shows how her parents are doing a good job of raising her. A wonderful story, a wonderful ending, and wonderful example of how we mobile fans of the net can unite.

    Go Katie! Enjoy your Star Wars!
