Meet Karis

Karis Elizabeth Almy was born June 29, 2009.  When she was five months old she was diagnosed with Krabbe Leukodystrophy, a progressive demyelinating disease.  Though she is not able to move or speak, Karis’ sweet personality is evident through her expressions and an undeniable sense of peace.  Karis is the Greek word for “grace” and her life has been marked by the grace and kindness of the One who knit her body together.  Her best friends are her little sister, Kales, and her little brother, Ander.

Karis loves to float in the bathtub and ride in her wheelchair van!  She enjoys animals, tactile toys that engage her senses (like scented Play Doh!) and story time with her brother and sister.  Thank for taking some time to getting to know Karis!
