Sarah Christmyer - Awesome website, Krissie!! and beautiful work.

I left a message on your mom’s phone and she gave me your site info. I love it.

No rush but I would like to talk to you. I’m in the process of having my own website built and need some photos of me for the web designer to work into it.

I look forward to talking to you!

Brenda Anderson - Hi Kristen,
We met you and your dad on the Amtrak in July as we were on our way to take a Mississippi Riverboat trip from St. Louis to St. Paul. I seem to recall that you and your dad were headed for Chicago, but I don’t remember your plans after that. I hope your travels were good.

We have just returned home to California – we loved the riverboat trip. Massive stretches of the river are still primitive and pristine and it was a very peaceful and relaxing trip. We finished up with a leisurely road trip back to Santa Monica.

You shared some valuable information with me about the Red Thread Sessions photography for adoptive parents which I have now shared with our daughter and son-in-law who expect to complete adoption of their two Foster daughters later this year. What a wonderful service you and your fellow photographers are offering to adoptive families!

You also mentioned having experienced some kind of volunteer training in connection with Foster children and I wonder if you can tell me a little more about that, I recall you gave an example of not using the words “keep it a secret” when talking with Foster children because of the likelihood that abused children may have been told they needed to keep something secret. Can you tell me where you obtained that training or which organization might offer that kind of guidance for adoptive or Foster parents?

Erika (my daughter) said she would be very interested in learning more about that. She mentioned just before we left on our vacation that Sadie, the 11-year old, had told her she didn’t like the sound of an oscillating table fan because she had some unpleasant memories of hearing one during some of their earlier nomadic life with their biological parents. It seemed to me, in a way, like the same sort of thing – it is helpful to know what may trigger a flashback or PTSD or some unsettling remembrance.

Thank you for sharing your experiences with me. Reynold and I enjoyed meeting and talking with you and your dad on the train. That’s one of the pleasures of train travel; meeting new and interesting people. I also enjoyed exploring your website – your photography is delightful to look at and I enjoyed reading about the experiences of Fostering.

Best regards,
