Oh Happy Day!

Addi's first fundraising event raised a whopping


Words can't describe the gratitude I feel. I am especially grateful for Katie Wells over @ Katie Wells photography for getting the ball rolling on all this fund raising business. I am soooo very, very grateful for all the donations, large and small, towards FOP research. As a mother of a child that has this horrible disease, I can attest to the fact that I feel pretty powerless in all this except when I blog and try to promote IFOPA donations. Being able to do something about all this gives me hope. A gift not easily given to a pessimist who would rather be pleasantly surprised than have her heart let down. I was indeed, pleasantly surprised my friends.

Now to pleasantly surprise all of you!

Are you ready for this?

I bet you can hardly wait...
