The Mix Family, Hillsdale, Michigan
November 19, 2002
Ruby arrived today. I was very happy. My name is Jessica Mix and we live in Hillsdale, Michigan. I am 9 years old and have been diabetic since October 2000. My mom took Ruby to school as soon as she came. I showed everyone in my class. Everyone was happy to see Ruby. We went to our first diabetes support group tonight and everyone was interested in Ruby. This was a happy day!

We really didn't do much since the day we received Ruby. I took Ruby to my drama class to see us practice for our play. We had a big Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's house. Ruby and I ate a lot of turkey and pie. When we got home, we had to take a nap we were so full! We all enjoyed Ruby's visit here and now Mom is packing her up to ship her to the next family.
I will miss you, Ruby!
