Kimberly was my adoption specialist. Although I hadn't gotten as much time with her as others, I know that she touched alot of lives in her life. She was a kind hearted woman and I hope she is honestly in a better place.

I've only just read about this tragic news. Kimmy was an inspiring and highly admired person in the travel blogging community. She will be sadly missed by us all.
