2012 so far...
One of our local radio stations hosted a teddy bear drive for the Peoria children's hospital. We spent a very emotional and scary week there when Jonah was only 3 weeks old. He had to have surgery for Pyloric Stenosis, and we were a wreck. No one wants to end up in the hospital, especially not with their child... and imagine how scary it is for those kids who- unlike Jonah was- are old enough to grasp what's going on. Donating stuffed animals for these children was a great way to pay it forward. It made us so happy to think of the smiles and comfort they would bring.
Look how many stuffed animals they had collected!!!
This was only 1/2 way through the donation week!!!!
