In 2010, our youngest daughter was born. Little did we know then that this little girl would forever change our world. Soon after her birth, we discovered that she was born with a little something extra and was diagnosed with Down Syndrome. At first, we were filled with worry, grief, and fear of the unknown. But it didn't take long to realize that this little girl completed our family and taught us more in her short time on this earth than we learned in our lifetime. She has taught us to slow down and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
It's not a race but yet a journey. And although this journey has not always been easy, it has brought a tremendous amount of joy, love, and gratitude. This Café has been named in honor of our daughter Sarina, who has shown us to stop and enjoy the moment.
At the age of 4, our daughter, Kallie, was diagnosed with a malignant germ cell tumor on her spine. During treatment, we would always get a bowl of ice cream to celebrate all the little milestones. Even when she barely had an appetite to eat, we could always count on her enjoying a big bowl of ice cream at the end of the day. After months of chemotherapy and surgery to remove her tumor, Kallie became cancer free and continues to remain cancer free to this day. To celebrate all the little milestones with your loved ones and enjoy an ice cream today at Kallie's Kones.
