There is a jar a Spengler's Restaurant (where I work) that people can put money in to donate to Ethan's Gift. I had thought people would just put their spare change in but I was wrong many people put more than just their spare change in it! So thanks to everyone who donated at Spengler's you know who you are!!!! Also thanks to Jim Holmen who gave me a donation while I was working today! With this money I was able to get 14 preemie sleepers and 10 preemie onesies! Thanks again everyone! If anyone works some place that would let us put a jar up by their register please let me know!

I know better than most that being a parent of a NICU baby is so very hard. My world was turned upside down, for weeks I did not know which end was up. When Ethan was born it was the scariest time in my life. We were not ready for him to be here, the only things we had for him was a car seat, and the stroller that came with it. Thanks to so many different people we had everything we needed when Ethan finally got to come home. Many NICU families are not as blessed as we are with such a great support system. This is why in honor of Ethan I am starting up a project I'm calling Ethan's gift. Ethan's gift will help NICU families have somethings that they will need for their child and hopefully will make them smile.
