Hello everyone!  As many of you know, this month is very special to us as it is the month Remi was born :)  Her birthday was March 13th - she would have been 4 this year!  Although we cannot believe that 4 years have passed, we are amazed at the doors that have been opened in that time & what God has done in our lives since March 13, 2009!  As much as we miss our precious baby, we know that R Angel would not exist without her & for that, we are grateful.  It brings us so much joy to help other families in her honor!

On her birthday this year, we delivered 20 bathroom baskets to the Toledo Children's Hospital with supplies for families to use if they have to stay at the hospital with their child.  We also delivered a gift card to a couple whose baby was born 7 weeks early and in the NICU.  I was even able to meet sweet baby Avery :)  Her mother and father are staying at the Ronald McDonald House, but are making trips back home as well, so hopefully this gift card will help with some of the expenses they may incur. 

When we were delivering the bathroom baskets, we met a wonderful (and very large :) family of a little girl who was in the PICU suddenly after getting an infection.  The father happened to know our brother-in-law as well.  What a small world!  We ended up sending the father a gift card to help pay for expenses that he may incur while his daughter is in the hospital.

Please keep both these families in your thoughts & prayers and all the families that might receive one of our bathroom baskets.  Thanks for all your continued support :)
