Benjamin’s second birthday is approaching. Last year, we had no clue what to do. Nothing seemed right. Besides, we had a two-month-old! So we just stayed home and missed him.
This year will be different. We’re holding a Lights for Benjamin event with friends and family at a local park. Floating water lanterns will be released at dusk, and I’m so excited to share that moment with those who are participating.
Many have chosen to donate beyond the cost of their lanterns, which left us with a bit of a surplus. The extra funds will be donated to Breath of Hope, Inc. in Benjamin’s name on his birthday. This is an organization for parents of CDH babies and angels which provides support, resources, and care packages. Breath of Hope, Inc. was and continues to be an incredible help to me. If you would like to donate, please contact me via e-mail or by commenting for more information.
***NOTE: A few have asked about lantern purchase. They have already been purchased! Anything collected at this point is to add to the donation total next month. Thank you so much to those who have contributed!***
Also, Paisley turned ONE last month! Time is flying by. She is such a ray of sunshine.
