Sunday Jan 29th 2012 Looking back, 2011 was a lot more than we thought it would be. What started out as a tribute to Katie's memory is taking it's own course now. Already in 2012 We been invited to speak in public about our experiences, and approached by a number of agencies, service clubs and other organizations that both need our help, and want to help us. 2012 is bringing on it's own challeges and the scope of The KatieBears is now way more than we ever even considered possible. Wow.

To everyone who accepted a KatieBear in 2011. Thank You.
