Darlynn was adopted by her forever family on Feb. 18, 2008.

Her favorite song was "Blessed Be the Name." Her favorite food was taco pizza and her favorite outfit was anything with a hoodie. Darlynn's Bible verse was Matthew 5:8: "Blessed are the pure in heart; for they shall see God."
Darlynn will be deeply missed by her family; Dad, Brian; Mom, Lori; big sister, Sreya; big brother, Sajen and family and friends, too numerous to list.
