More donations have arrived!

There is not much more satisfying than knowing that what you are doing is catching on and being embraced by others. A big thank you to Annemarie and Lola Maylene for your gifts toward the Celebration boxes. They are getting very full. I think it's time to pick up a few more boxes and fill them too.
Today the mailman came and much to my delight he brought a box. This box was full to the brim with gently used preemie and newborn sleepers and onesies. Which is always a blessing but the best and most amazing part is that this box was from another NICU graduate and his family. A NICU graduate who recieved one of the sleepers you all so generously donated. Thank you Jayden! We're so glad to meet you and we're excited that you are growing soo fast! Congratulations!

Celebration Box Update

A big thank you to Wendy, Amy, and Lori! Because of their generous donations and some things I've found cheap we are getting closer to having completed our boxes. These are the items we are still looking for:
"Cars" hats
toddler friendly animal toys or zoo themed items
fingernail polish
We also have a box of misc. party items and decorations, mixed with a grab bag of gifts for the kids. There is still time to get in on the giving. I'm waiting for a box from the mainland that has a bunch of Mary Kay samples for our "Day at the spa" box for older girls.


Here is an overview of the box themes we have right now.
>> for toddlers: it's a gender neutral Animal / Zoo box
>> For younger girls: A Princess box
>> for younger boys: A Cars box
>> for older girls: "a day at the spa" box
>> for older boys: A sports box

Please feel free to add things to any of the box ideas or like I said before if you want to do one of your own please do! I'm still waiting on that mainland box so like I said it might not be until closer to the end of the month that I drop it all off.
