A Portrait of Life, a Small Glimpse Into the Bigger Picture
A Portrait of Life is based on the true story of friendship between two women who are faced with death on very different levels. Vicki hates the struggle of everyday life and longs to one day be happy in the presence of God. Allie loves life and her children but has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. She struggles with the idea of life after death and usually chooses to avoid it altogether for the sake of her children. While Vicki struggles with cynicism and Allie faces the realities of death, they both teach each other how to live. When Vicki finds out that she's pregnant, she learns about stem cells taken from cord blood and the medical possibilities they create. Will they be a match for Allie? Is transfer of the cells even possible? Follow Vicki Thomas as she recounts this touching story of friendship, learning, and living. Author Vicki Thomas lives in Edmond, Oklahoma, with her husband, and she is the mother of eight children and a grandmother. She has dedicated her life to raising her children. She served as President of the Officer's Wives Club for one year, she has written as a guest columnist for local newspapers, and she volunteers as the 'Meet the Masters' art instructor for Edmond Public School System.

I'm hoping that author, Vicki Thomas, sees this post! I used to nanny for the Thomas' when Grant was just an infant! I've wondered how you all have been and how Samantha, Kali, Marissa, Lauren & Grant are doing! I don't know if any of you are on Facebook, but I'd love to hear from you! I have such fond memories of playing with all the kids & their friends, and even have some of the audio tapes I recorded to send home to my family in Indiana. I can't wait to finish your book Vicki! (I've only read the preview here.) Sincerely, Peggy Healton Frye
