Going back... the Ronald McDonald House!

For the last several months we have been collecting toys take to the children that would be staying at the RMH over the Christmas holiday. As of now, we have collected well over 100 toys to be donated. We have also collected other supplies to be donated as well...such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap and cleaning supplies.

We will be visiting the RMH of Delaware on the following dates:

Saturday December 5, 2009 - we will be delivering the toys and supplies.

This day is also Baby Todd's we will be celebrating his birthday in Wilmington. I have a few ideas planned to help make the day special for the girls as well.

Saturday January 2, 2010 - we will be spending the evening preparing dinner and visiting with the families at the RMH. We will be preparing a meal for approximately 60-80 guests this evening.

Both of these dates hold significant meaning to us, which will cause our visits to be very bittersweet. We are asking for your prayers once again, as we prepare for the next step in this "journey".

Our prayers are with you as you return to celebrate Baby Todd's birthday. There will be many memories for those two days. I will always remember the day in between, as it is our anniversary. But God has helped you to shine for Him through this time. We love you all.

Only God could give the strength that your family has shown during this very difficult year and a half. I know that it all started way before Baby Todd's birthday and will continue for ...........
You have shown strength and courage that is only God-given. I know that he will be with you and you will be blessed as much if not more than the people you will be helping.
God Bless Your Family! We will be praying for you.

I always appreciate how you have taken the hard times in life and made them into a blessing for others. May YOU be blessed as well as you remember and reach out to continue Todd's legacy in Christ's love.

Much love,
