Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye!
This is Lin's Very
Today is December 28th, 2011.
I received a beautiful Christmas Card from our very own Kevin Hopson and his lovely wife Gunes, inside I found a keeper that is being added to our own personal photo album, but I hope Gunes and Kevin will permit me to share it, and tell you about the charity they hold dear in their hearts.
First...isn't this a great picture? And now the charity. Gunes and Kevin are grateful for the photos they have of Aydin born without the gift of breath. They mentioned many charities, such as MISS Foundation, Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support and March of Dimes...but the closest to their hearts is NILMDTS...
Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep...
a non-profit organization of volunteer photographers
who capture memories of still born babies free of charge.
Kevin and Gunes say their photgraphs of Aydin are one of the few tangible memories they have of their miracle son, and therefore, are their most cherished possession.
I pass this along in the hopes we can all see fit to honor Kevin and Gunes for their strength, their generosity, and the wellspring of love that lives so powerfully within them. Skyler Blue is here, but so is Aydin, and the pictures the volunteers made, I know are treasures the Hopson family will cherish forever.
Karen I hope you will add this charity to your avatar list on our brother's behalf. This group of dedicated photographers are God's angels too.
In a world that seems to want us buried beneath the dubious celebrity of reality shows, finding people like Kevin and Gunes, and Muse gives me hope the world hasn't totally slipped from the values I hope I have lived.
The past few days have overwhelmed Kat and me with the bountiful hearts around us. My therapy is via
Jewish Family and Children Services. On Friday two of their fantastic volunteers drove up to our apartment armed with ALL the equipment Kat's allergist told us we need...but because of the changes our Governor here in NJ has made were no longer considered of enough medicial need to have insurance cover them.
Angels abound and appear when we least expect them. To Lisa, I give my deepest thanks. You passed our need along to those in position to grant wishes even though we did not know we were making wishes. Thank you all.
More news...Kat and I will be moving this year...not sure when just yet, but it's definite...so I spent part of yesterday wading through our pictures and I found two I haven't posted anywhere yet, so let make amends
to our cherished
Peanuts with these pics.
Until next time...
