Thanks to all who helped find Diamond


OTTUMWA — Faith, trust and the grace of God brought me an Easter miracle. Five days my little chihuahua, Diamond, was lost in this big, scary world. She endured our last snowstorm, frigid night temperatures and dense, damp fog. All the while, as I prayed, worried and worked on having faith, I discovered amazing insights into the community of Ottumwa. We are a community of animal lovers who will join the cause of finding lost animals for anyone and any pet in need. The vigilence of friends, strangers, prayer and God’s will brought my little Diamond home to me on Easter Sunday. Thank you so much to all of the many people who helped God make her safe return possible. A special thank you to Carol for being in the right place at the right time.
