Saying 'thanks' {CHD week}

Today we spent the afternoon delivering gift baskets, on behalf of our support group, Hearts of Hope.

(Joshua aka Mr. Aloof - refused to look at the camera & smile)

It is so much fun to be apart of this type of event - an event that took the effort and coordination of many people.  As a mother, whose son is alive in large part to doctors & nurses, you feel as if no 'thank you' is ever enough. But you do what you can & in this case I think the Kaiser staff lucked out (assuming they have a sweet tooth...and c'mon who doesn't have a sweet tooth?)!!! 

(If you ever want to be the center of attention, round up some kids & hand out gift baskets...it really causes a stir!)
(still aloof - even though he was super happy to see Dr. Rivera) 
In case I haven't made it clear to all those who play a part in caring for kids with CHD's....
Thank you for all you do!

I found your blog through Owen Simmons blog. I've been reading for awhile now but haven't commented. So "hello"! Just wanted you to know I love this idea!!! My son has HRHS. I'm part of a support group and will have to share this idea with them when we meet next week. Such a wonderful way to say thank you!
