Friends,

We have so much that has happened the last several days!  It has been such a testimony of the outpouring of love and mercy shown to Rebecca and the baby!  We wanted to share several things that have happened –

 

Our goal has almost been reached with the donations from the website and through our church

A photographer donated a newborn session to Rebecca when she is well enough

The apartment complex has given 3 months free rent

A sweet lady has donated all of the items on the registries

Lowes donated supplies to redo a baby crib

The employer of Rebecca’s father and brother in law gave them the week paid

A fundraiser for a motorcycle ride has been organized for April 27th

 

We are trying to keep track of all the ways that God is blessing and helping the family.  We are just so thankful and so overwhelmed.  Thank you so much
