Kirsten Foote was born and raised in New Zealand and is a mother of two. She is raising her ‘rainbow’, Murphy, while remembering her ‘sunshine’ – Maeve. She loves the beach, travelling and making special memories. While she never expected to be a special needs mother or the mother of a child gone too soon, she always tries to find the joy in the life she has been given. You can read more about Maeve’s story on Instagram - @kirstensf
