Visiting Karen Blevins

The following story is what Dominique’s Smiles is all about for children, adults, and families in many timeless ways – replacing the hurt and pain with good memories.

Dominique visited Karen Blevins a few days before Christmas in 2020 and brought her a plush mini-horse. To see her joy and the smile on her face was very humbling. Karen passed on in May.

Christmas is too often associated with giving gifts. We tend to think we must spend hundreds of dollars to find the perfect gift for our loved ones. Sometimes the gift of a smile is the greatest gift we can give to those we love as well as folks we’ve just met. True to his mission, Dominique provided Christmas smiles this week to Karen Blevins who is house bound with multiple health problems. As you can see, Karen’s husband Donald could not help but smile as well. Thank you Dominique and Sandy for making Karen’s day! ~ Beth Innerst.

Visiting Anne Wagner

Anne Wagner, a horsewoman icon in York County, PA agreed to be our very first home visit. She knew how much this mission meant to me. We have shared many laughs over the years, and this was one more!
