  1. Hi Stacy – I’m Chris Sullivan’s daughter and Katie Murphy’s sister. I guess you spent some time with them the other weekend. And my mom works with your mom at the hospital. Well, my mother gave me your blog because I’m trying to remember the name of a book I read over and over again when I was younger. It is about a homeless girl that befriends a wolf and they end up taking a train somewhere. For the life of me I can’t remember any more details although I know I read the thing about 20 times. Anyway, my mother bet me 10 bucks you’d know the name of it. Either way I win cause this is driving me crazy. Can you let me know what you think? Great blog by the way!!!
