Dear Family and Friends,
Dale and I would like to say thank you very much for all of your generous donations towards Addelynn and Alexander's fundraising efforts for the NICU at Huntsville Hospital. Seven months ago today, our miracles, Addelynn and Alexander were born and admitted into the NICU at St. Johns Mercy Medical Center, St. Louis. Since then, we have made huge strides! It is now that our family is taking an active role in helping the lives of babies born in our new hometown, Huntsville, Alabama!

Words cannot explain how we felt 7 months ago today when we were informed that our babies would be arriving into the world, two months early. At this time, we were in the hands our our doctors and did whatever it took to get them here safely! We thank God and the staff at St. Johns Mercy for having the state of the art equiptment that allowed Alexander and Addelynn to reach for their fullest potential during the first few weeks of their life. As parents, we had to put our trust in those that know best! We consider ourselves very lucky to have been in this environment. It is such an amazing feeling and since of accomplishment to know that we are now in the process of helping babies in Huntsville, Alabama have this same opportunity!

Addelynn and Alexander's fundraiser webpage shares their story as well as information about the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Huntsville Hospital. Dale and I would like to say thank you to all of you that have prayed and to all of you that have donated. Addelynn and Alexander have 20 days left to raise money for the NICU. Please feel free to click the Swim for Melissa link on the right side of our blog to learn more about this life saving opportunity.

Thank You Again!!!!!!!
