Kristy Fornwald and her husband, Matt Burkey, moved to the lakecity this month with their two girls Violet, 2, and Anna, 4.
One of their first outings was to the Williams Lake Library recently.
The family moved to Williams Lake from Baltimore, Md. where they have been living and working. Kristy grew up in Williams Lake and wanted to settle here to be close to her family and to enjoy the great outdoors.
They met nine years ago while they were both working in Uganda.
Matt is a child psychologist with the Child Development Centre and Kristy is a social worker with the Interior Health adult mental health support team. For stories celebrating Family Literacy Week turn to our Reach a Reader pages A6, A7, A11, A12, A13, A14, A15 and A17.
