She was a waitress for about a year and then joined the Air Force. She was stationed in Witchita, Kansas where she met a man named Ted. They were married on November 14, when they were both 21. Because they were both in the Air Force, they moved to Okinawa, Japan, Sacramento, California, and Abilene, Texas. She left the Air Force while living in Texas.
When in Abilene, after having tried for years, the couple finally concieved twins. At 7 months pregnant, Kris became very sick, most likely having pnemonia. At 7 months her water broke early and they feared she may die in labor, she was even read her last rights. Luckily, she gave birh to a son and daughter who, after extensive medical treatment, became healthy children.
The family moved to Eagle River, Alaska. After two or three years of living there, Ted had to leave to go to Italy because of the Kosovo War. After a couple weeks of taking care of two toddlers by herself, Kris went down to Leominster, Massachusetts to stay with her in-laws. They day before the three left, however, her daughter stopped breathing and she was rushed to the hospital. The girl was fine after treatment and the family left as planned.
About a year or two after Ted returned, he was stationed in New Jersey. There, after having served 21 years in the military, he retired. After Kris recieved a job offer in Oro Valley, Arizona. After two years of living there, the couple decided to move to Massachusetts so their children could know at least one side of the family.
The family has been living there ever since. Every day, Kris selflessly helps her children through everything, even if they don't make things the easiest on her.
Happy Mothers Day. I love you mom.
