Today, we sent out 2 more prepaid VISA cards. One was for a family whose little baby had to go in for surgery to remove part of the baby's skull and then reconstruct it. They were going to be in the hospital for a few days, so we wanted to send them something to help with some of the expenses. The other one was for a baby who was born prematurely. The baby's mother had some medical complications herself and is now doing well, but the baby will be in the hospital for a while so we are hoping this gift card will help during this difficult time. Please keep both families in your thoughts and prayers!

WOW! What an amazing day! For the first time ever, we had a group of volunteers help make baskets for R Angel today. Thank you so much to all the high school students from Swanton and Springfield who came out to help! We were able to quickly put together 20 bathroom baskets and 3 food baskets for the hospital. (Pictures to come soon!) We took the baskets to Toledo Children's Hospital and stocked the bathroom with 20 baskets - the most we've ever put in there at one time! We also met up with one of Remi's old nurses and someone from Child Life that knew of 3 families that would be perfect to receive the food baskets. Thank you to everyone who helped make this day possible! With Remi's 2nd birthday approaching tomorrow, this was a perfect way to honor her and remember the amazing impact she had and continues to have on so many people's lives! Please continue to pray for all the children in the hospital and the families of these children!

Today, we sent 2 prepaid VISAs to 2 families with baby girls in the hospital. One family lives in California! Crazy how word travels and we are able to help someone across the country! We are so thankful for people sharing about R Angel and what we do so we can reach families like this :) The baby girl's name is Cayleigh & she has just been transferred to a hospital 2 hours away from where her parents and 3 siblings live, so we hope this VISA will help pay for expenses they will incur.

The other VISA was sent to a family that we found out about through the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Toledo. We are so thankful that we are able to work with them and provide help to families with children with Down Syndrome, as obviously they hold a VERY special place in our hearts! This family is traveling back and forth to and from the hospital to be with their baby girl & we hope this VISA will help with some of their expenses.

Please keep both families in your thoughts and prayers as they wait by their babies' bedsides to bring them home! This can be such a difficult time and we are just trying to give some help to those who are in similar situations as we were almost 2 years ago.

Today, we sent a prepaid VISA to a family in Indiana, who's baby was born prematurely. Her name is Addi & she is going to be in the hospital for a few weeks until she is big enough and strong enough to go home. We are hoping that this gift card will help pay for expenses that they may incur traveling back and forth during this time. Please keep Addi and her family in your prayers!
