Karrie's 15th Birthday

Karrie Cynthia Jones was born on Thursday, August 24, 1995 at LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City.  Karrie was 9 weeks premature and weighed 3 lbs. 13 oz., 16 1/2 inches long.  Karrie had to be in the Newborn ICU for four weeks.  When she came home, she slept with a Bradycardia Monitor. Since she still could not eat on her own, she had to be fed with a tube that her Mom and Dad had to stick down her throat into her stomach!  She is very blessed to have only a mild case of Cerebral Palsy from being so early!
Karrie's middle name "Cynthia" is after her Mother "Bonnie Cynthia" and after her Grandmommy "Cynthia Wilkerson Shaw". She is proud to be named after them both.
Karrie has turned into a beautiful young woman.  She has a strong sense of right and wrong, loves the scriptures, and always strives to do what is right.  She is quiet, sensitive, loyal and compassionate.  We are so proud of who she has become!
On Thursday, August 19th, Karrie chose to go to "Outback Steakhouse" with all of the family for her birthday celebration. Then on her birthday, we had cake and ice cream as a family.  Happy 15th Birthday, Karrie!! We love you!!

I remember hearing when you had Karrie. That was so exciting. I remember Grandmother and Granddaddy being so excited to (and you parents).
Happy Birthday Karrie. :)
