November 2006

Here are some very special things about myself. I was born in a hospital in Virginia, Minnesota on November 20, 1983. One day later, my mom and dad brought me from the hospital to live in a small house in the woods. I was the youngest of the three girls and we also had goats and chickens and two cats. I shall never forget the times my mom and I went for walks in the woods and picked the beautiful wild flowers.

When I was four, my parents were divorced. My mom and Amanda and Star and I all moved to an apartment in Roseville, Minnesota. When I was 5 years old I was very sick. My family thought I was going to die. I didn’t die. One night I woke up and said mommy mommy I thought I saw a fairy. That’s when the angels first came to me. I believe that my angels have helped my health to improve. Now I send my angels out into the world where people might need them.

I collect angel souvenirs and statues. I also collect turtles and rocks. Besides collecting I like to read. I also like to cook and bake food such as chicken noodle soup and apple crisp. I like to do crafts with my oldest sister Amanda. I like being in plays. I love to paint landscapes with sunrises and sunsets more than anything.  I also love to sing and my mom thinks I have the prettiest voice ever. When I’m in a sad mood I sing until I feel happy. Mostly what makes me unhappy is when I get headaches or I get sick. Sometimes my sister Star sings with me too and I really enjoy that a lot. My sister Star is so silly that I will always have fun with her.

I get to do lots of fun things. Like, once in a while I get to go and visit my dad up in the woods. My mom and I still go on walks and we read together. I also take walks with my dog Kingston who is a King Charles Cavalier English Spaniel. I am a responsible dog owner. Sometimes I go bowling with Star or my friend Christena or with Special Olympics friends. I have a very important job, which is cleaning at my church, and am I ever the lucky one because I get to listen to the church bells and organ when I clean.

If I could have one wish in the whole world it would be that I grow up healthy and become a famous artist. Debby Newman thought we should write a book about our memories. Here it is. I hope it brings happiness to your life. Eve
