Sometimes God sends angels here to accomplish certain goals and then there are other kinds of angels that when they have completed those purposes, He calls them home early. Some angels are better at their missions than others and He calls them home before we humans are ready for them to go. Alex Davidson is one of those angels.

Alex Davidson was a BEAUTIFUL vibrant and very sweet little girl. Even though she could be stubborn at times, she could always flash those beautiful eyes and that sparkly grin and turn the table and make everything ok. About the time Alex was 11 years old, she started to experience some "Stomach issues" by the time she was entering High School, after making the Cheerleading Squad, she could not even cheer at one game. You see Alex developed Crohn's Disease, a disease most people associate with older people.

Alex spent summers at Crohn's Camp and fell in love with it and eventually became a counselor. She poured her heart and soul into helping others affected by the disease that is now taking her life.

At 20, she has now spent more than half of her life sick. She has spent more than 2000 days in the hospital and has had numerous operations that has left her with a body that is fragile and just doesn't allow her to do many of the things that Alex would love to. While her head tells her that she is a 20 year old, her body just won't do those things anymore.

Alex has now been placed into hospice care. The hospital bed delivered and the family tried moving into a bigger home to accomodate the hospital bed and equipment that Alex would need to be comfortable, not ot mentin the many visitors that would come to show their love.

When they found the "new" home, Alex told her mother that this was "it". This was where she wanted to spend her last days. The family has moved, unpacked and was preparing to go ahead and prepare the house for the holidays so that they could celebrate early if they needed to. Instead they are now having problems from the owner (who was aware of the situation) and now are being forced to move out in a matter of days. The details are insane and at this point, irrelevant.

Bottom line, the family needs help finding a new place and help with all of the moving expenses. They are not ones to ask for help and are having a hard time with the outpouring of love that they are receiving. But would like to let all of you know just how much they appreciate all that you are wanting to do.  This site has been set up so that there is a way for everyone to help.

Please pray for this family and that they all can be at peace during the most difficult time they will ever experience. Losing a child is hardest thing a parent should never have to do.

May God Bless You for Being One of The Angels Among Us!

Had the opportunity to take Alex over to the new home today.  Though she tired quickly, she loved the home.  She stood there in the hallway and kept repeating how humbled she was and how blessed we all are.  We could not agree with her more.  We will be posting photos as soon as we move in and get settled.  So many of you have asked if you could come and help pack.  Honestly, we have most of the h...ome already packed.  What we truly could use help with would be the painting of some rooms at the new home.  I am not sure how it will all work as the home will be cleaned on Thursday and Friday.  Mover's arrive at 9:00am on Saturday.  We are so greatly blessed and continue to be amazed by the miracles and grace that God has shown us.  With the holiday season just around the corner, we do ask that you do additional thing; we ask that you, "Pay it Forward and Give Back."  Through this whole experience we have met so many amazing people.  So many people in this world are hurting or in need one way or another.  Every single person has a talent of some type.  Share it.  You never know what kind of huge difference it can make in another person's life.  God Bless...Lorri

FROM Lorri: Nov 12:

PRAISING GOD THAT WE HAVE A NEW PLACE TO CALL HOME!!!!!!!  Early this afternoon we received confirmation that we would be able to move into a home this coming Saturday.  An established builder in the John's Creek area reached out to us about a home he had available.  We saw the house yesterday afternoon.  We all stood in the yard crying tears of joy and relief.  What an awesome God we serve. This ...past week has been a rollercoaster of emotions for our entire family.  One thing that was confirmed over and over again was that there are hundreds and hundreds of people that don't know us personally, but have hearts of gold and a love for God that is hard to compute.  I have been guilty so many times with the feelings of, "nobody cares what happens so why bother."  The past seven days have completely proven me/us wrong.  The love, prayers, support and encouragement that we are receiving are priceless and greatly appreciated. We will spend the next four days packing like crazy.  Tomorrow I will be taking Alex back to the hospice facility in Buckhead for a "tune-up."  This whole house situation and now move has really taken a toll on her stress level.  Every one felt that it would in Alex's best interest to stay there until after the move is complete. I can't wait to take photos and share them with everyone.  We will be closer to our church, friends and so much more.  The wonderful families of John's Creek have reached out and embraced us.  It is wonderful to live in a community where our family wants to be involved in and give back to.  What an awesome God we serve.  Thank you, Rachel Stockman, WSB-TV, Dante Tinsley, 94.9 The Bull, Sherri Jordan Buell, Greg Buell and many, many silent supporters that we have had the honor and pleasure of meeting and working with.  We are seriously overwhelmed.
