Happy Birthday to our beautiful girl.
Kalkidan Ella Qualls. Loved. Remembered. Celebrated.
We’re wearing orange today 10/29, and tomorrow to celebrate Kalkidan.
Russ has been in Colorado with other foster and adoptive dads and is on his way home today. We’ll be together tomorrow as a family, wearing orange, eating something spicy, and remembering the gift of Kalkidan.
If you are celebrating Kalkidan with us, we invite you to share a picture of yourself wearing something orange, or with something orange in the picture. Orange was Kalkidan’s favorite color and truly represented her bright spirit. If you have photos of her, please share those as well.
Please upload your photo(s) to Facebook (and tag me so I see it), Instagram, or Twitter. Hashtag your photo #rememberingkalkidan
Our family will see your photos and know that you are remembering Kalkidan with us.
If there is one thing I fear, it’s that our spicy, vibrant girl will be forgotten.
Please share this with anyone who might like to celebrate with us.
Kalkidan changed our lives forever – our daughter, sister, friend, and teacher. We will never be the same.
In our sadness, which honestly is still very deep, we are sure of God’s promises – Kalkidan is more alive than ever and she knows only love. We’ll see her again and it will be a joyful reunion.
Much love from our family to you,
Lisa – for all the Qualls
