THE SPARK - Chapter 1 - My Story

Sunday, January 03, 2010


All I can say is WOW!

I 'felt' for Chris as he candidly shared his life with the world! He was open, and heartfelt. He shared the trials as well as the successes. I related to the anxiety, to the self-consciousness, and also to the personal growth. I feel privileged to have this glimpse into the personal life of such an incredible person, yet such an ordinary person! I feel like he and his family could be any average family living next door to any of us!

As a mother of two sons, I was also drawn to Chris’s mother, who raised two sons. I was deeply touched by the love, insight, and dedication Chris has for his mother.

I too, knew I wanted to raise a family. I am so glad that Chris and Karina shared that long slow dance on that memorable day! No matter what else one achieves in life, nothing compares to creating a strong loving family unit!

I am so happy for the Downie family, and all of those on SparkPeople who are realizing their potential and their dreams!
