Carry Each Other's Burdens {and a Giveaway}


the winner the headband is ...

#2 Katy!!!!

the winner of the blanket # 28

I found out today that little Alanna is going to have to have another surgery. The doctors will be in, hopefully tomorrow, to talk about all of the options. I don't know any other details. This breaks my heart!

I have been praying for Alanna and her family. I have also been praying that God show me how I can help to meet their needs. God has led me to set up this donation site to help defray their costs while Alanna is at the hospital.

While I was visiting them, I was thinking of a way to bless them. They are not a couple that will ask or say they need anything. They are amazingly strong in all that they are doing and going through.

So here is the fun part. My dear friend Charissa from Mimi's Babies and Robyn from Our Homeschool Home has offered a few things to give away.

This headband and hairclip set from Mimi's Babies

From Our Homeschool Home- via her store Snootie Paootie.

A cute little blanket. The one that is being given away is purple.

  1. I am a fan of MiMi's babys :)

  2. Most importantly.....I AM PRAYING FOR ALANNA!!!!!

  3. That headband is the cutest thing ever. My daughter hates wearing them right now, but she would be sooo cute in that!

  4. I donated. My daughter had a heart problem and was in the hospital for almost four of her first eight months. She ended up having a heart transplant and I can relate to the fear and overwhelm Alanna's parents must be going through. Please tell them I wish I could give more and that little ones are real fighters...I hope they are able to figure things out in the surgery and get her on the mend. I will keep them all in my thoughts and prayers.

  5. Fanned mimi's on facebook, but the twitter link didn't work.
