Video of meeting Mia Kareen



Finally figured out how to make video work from the laptop. Here is yesterday's meeting!
The sound right at the first is us crying...it was all I could do not to run over and scoop her up but we wanted to give her space and not scare her!
When she gets up from the table it is because the ladies were telling her to get up and dance for us. She went over to the dance floor but then got a little nervous.
The first thing Kris said when she came in was "oh she is so pretty".

    I Loved the video!! She is such a doll. I loved how beaming you and Kris are through the whole thing. I loved the hug at the end and how she talked on the phone, I guess that is a universal thing.

  31. I had a huge lump in my throat as I watched this. I could watch it over and over and over again and it would never get old. Kecia I can see so much emotion in your face. You looked like you were about to burst with excitement, love and joy. You were holding up pretty well as all of your followers including me are unable to hold back the tears. I am so so happy. So happy that this experience has lifted us all to newer heights! I feel our Savior's love in all the world around me. She is so sweet! I hope that the rest of this journey continues to go well. Love you!
