Sometimes in life we meet people that immediately welcome us into their lives. You feel at home the moment you step on their porch. You feel a kinship with them and just know you will be friends. This is how I felt when I first met Kim and Steven. I am thankful for the years that I have known them, even if I don't get to see them in Missouri much.
When Steven was diagnosed with Leukemia a few years I knew I wanted to document their family, but things came up and I just couldn't make the drive out.
Then he relapsed. Things got scary again.
I knew when/if their life got back to some semblance of normal I had to make the drive out. So I did. They were a huge part of the reason for my 5,000 mile trip a few weeks back. I spent an entire afternoon/evening with them, just hanging out, talking, taking a few pictures. Telling their story!

This is their story!
