Stephanie was a joy to everyone who knew her. She had a smile that could brighten up any room and make others feel so loved. Stephanie loved to be celebrated and enjoyed being surrounded by her family and adopted family. Her personality was spunky, joyous, and contagious. She loved dolls, stuffed animals, music, and bright colors. Nothing made her happier than to be surrounded by her family that she loved so dearly. Stephanie loved to feel like the princess she was and put on makeup and get her hair done. There was no one else that could smile and instantly give everyone around her a jubilant outlook on life. She is so loved by her all of her family and friends and will be deeply missed. For the first time she able to walk and dance in Heaven with Jesus.

God has been so good in providing people, who have become like family, that helped Stephanie with all of her needs and wants.

The family is forever thankful to those who have cared for her and been there to make sure that Stephanie was cared for in the best way possible.
