Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins

Our Jennifer

"I didn't give her
the gift of life,
rather life gave
me the gift of
her."

JLK was diagnosed with DIPG on her 6th birthday. Click here to
find out more about DIPG. Keeping reading to find out more
about our little girl.

Jennifer Lynn Kranz was born on October 28, 2007 at
4:38pm. She weighed 7lb 8oz and was 19.5 inches long.
It was a long road to find her filled with miscarriages, IVF
and failed adoptions. But I was the first to hold her and got
to cut the cord. As Jennifer says, “It was the day we went from
being Tony and Libby to Mommy and Daddy.” She is our dream come true and the greatest gift we have ever been given. Also, the 16th grandchild of Bill and Mary Scharrenberg, lovingly nicknamed ‘Baby Jennifer’

"Our Love" Where it was born from and where it will always remain.
