I feel so blessed.

In the last few weeks I have really learned how blessed we are with the people who care about us. I recently learned that one of the fabric co-ops (my favorite one! Truly! :) I am on was doing a fundraiser for our family.

Fabric coops are large groups of (mostly) woman that get together with the co-op owner to buy large quantities of fabric or other goods so that we can get the cheapest bulk rate. Many companies will only sell in large quantities and many of us just can't afford to buy our diaper fabric or whatever in such large amounts.

Denise is the owner of This End Up Co-op and she rallied the troops to help us. She was able to raise $600 for us and another $150 to be donated to Now I lay me Down to Sleep in Jonathan's name. What an amazing group of gals to pull together and help us out in such an amazing way.

We truly feel blessed to know that so many people care about us. Many of them we have never met in person.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We truly appreciate it.

You don't know me, but I came across your site. I know that this may not help you AT ALL, but I just wanted to share something. My cousin had a hard time getting pregnant. When she finally did, they were so excited. Come to find out, she was having twins. Later, they found out that they were conjoined twins...joined at the chest. They shared a heart. Needless to say, the babies did not live. Although it was extrremly hard, through prayer and the love of family and friends, they felt at peace. They are now pregnant again! I really feel for you and even though I dont know you, I will pray for you. The lord works in mysterious ways.
