Born in April of 2019, Colbie has been the brightest of lights in all of our lives. She is happy, determined and keeps us all smiling and laughing often. Colbie LOVES music, water, and everything possible about being outside. Most of all she adores her 4 older siblings and they feel the same way about her. We hope Care for Colbie helps raise awareness & funding for Kif1A research, helps other parents, but also this is just a place for us to keep our friends and family updated as we face whatever is to come for our sweet girl. We will NEVER stop cheering her on.
