Gracious & Thankful don't seem to suffice.....

We have had SO much love and support from the community, friends, family and complete strangers through our whole ordeal. They have helped us raise money for medical bills, living away from home, supplementing the income I lost when my job terminated me and then was denied unemployment, and even just sending up a prayer daily or every other day for our little family's well being and strength through our hardest days.

I can NEVER begin to thank each and every one of you for what you have done for us. It is absolutely amazing what people do in another's time of need. From fellow bloggers (Joanna at Raising Madison ) or to businesses like Absolute Beauty who helped us tremendously raise quite a bit of money in a little amount of time. There are donors both big and small and even if I might not mention you individually like Nicci who sent me a care package during one of our first hospital stays to a little boy I am about to tell you about. I warms Ry and I's heart like you wouldn't believe. While I try to send each and every one of you a personal thank you note, its not always possible. Between what seems like endless doctors appointments and being on the road to Riley 3 hours one way, I won't lie, its hard!

On to this story of Jack. I received a note from my Aunt a few weeks back that there was this little boy name Jack that took up an interest in our cause. His dad works with my Uncle at Fed Ex and began to follow our story when my uncle took bracelets to work to sell for our benefit. Well we received a package in the mail the other day. It was from Jack. He sent Keegan a Vtech Explore and learn helicopter.
He also included a handwritten card with stickers all over it! I opened it and it brought tears to my eyes. This little boy, who doesn't even "know" Keegan has taken the time and possibly his allowance to buy. It just swelled my heart and made me want to write this post. I did send him a picture thank you card , some bracelets for him, his mom and dad as well as a Karing for Keegan T-shirt and a sticker. Just when you think the world is full of people that only care about themselves and don't think to help people who are down, little things like this happen! Jack if you or your parents are reading this, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!

Lastly I want to shout out to some other people who have touched our lives being donating, praying, or being there for general support, we thank you! I won't list them all #1 cause I don't want to leave anyone out and #2 because there are quite a few of you. You know who you are so that is all that matters-THANK YOU!
