cute photos and great news

One day last week, Jonah and I met up with our friends, The Smittys at the park. I don't remember what day it was, but it was BEAUTIFUL. They were sick, Jonah was sick, but we all just needed to get outside. Jonah had just started his steroids, so he was kind of hard to please, but it was still nice to get out of the house.

Did I mention the day was beautiful?

And I think we're all long overdue for an Anton update. Several pieces of good news - the non-profit in Anton's country that is advocating for him has convinced the hospital, for now, to keep him there. I truly believe that is a direct answer to prayers. For now, they can advocate for Sweet Anton there, and we can advocate for him at the feet of Jesus. It's a pretty huge honor, don't you think? 

We have raised over $2,000 through the Chip In button on Hope for Anton, but the total on his Reece's Rainbow page (which includes the Chip In donations) is OVER $10,000. We are doing this! Do you realize his Reece's Rainbow page went up on February 8th? We (and many others around the world) have raised over $10,000 in 15 days!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your donations, your fundraisers, and for advocating for him. We have Thirty One, Tastefully Simple, Pampered Chef, and Avon Fundraisers going on, all to benefit Anton! And a new opportunity will be up first thing in the morning. Please take a look if you haven't. Also, I don't see us stopping any time soon, so please keep sending your ideas and suggestions. If we finish raising Anton's money, we'll just keep going for all the other equally deserving  kiddos out there. 


Please check it out, bid, and help us raise money for DebRA. One of these days, EB will just be a distant memory. I can't wait!
