On September 10, 2016 we held our first annual calendar party to raise money for our community outreach efforts. The outpouring of love and support by so many people has truly touched us. Around 150 people gathered to raise money for local grieving families at the event. We had thirteen tables with themes from Winter, to Pittsburgh Pirates, to Under the Sea. Guests were able to enjoy great fellowship and an exciting day of activities. Donations exceeded our expectations and were so generous that they will enable us to purchase TWO more Cuddle Cots and fund our Annual High School Scholarship. The funds for Cuddle Cot #3 have already been mailed and we are planning to place it in October, as part of Infant Loss Awareness Month. We are so grateful for all those who volunteered, hosted tables for the event, and donated to our efforts. It was a beautiful day to celebrate Daniel's life through service to others. We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many people who love us and love Daniel!!
I became a mommy in 2015 to a beautiful baby boy, Daniel John, who taught me the depth of a mother's love and the sorrow of neonatal infant loss.
