There has been something weighing very heavily on my heart, lately. I know that you all have been praying for my friend, Milenka and her sweet baby...and I know that all of the prayers and good thoughts mean so much to her...but sadly that just isn't enough.
They are in the same situation as many other American families. L works hard to support his family but there isn't much extra left over once the bills are paid. Wee Foxis in a hospital that is 90 minutes from their home...so they haven't been able to spend as much time at the hospital with him as they would like. Since most of my readers are Mommas themselves, I am sure you can well imagine the heartbreak she feels at being so far away from her precious boy. I also believe that the hospital is not being as warm or accommodating to them due to their absence. They are withholding information from them, which is just not acceptable. She needs to be able to have a voice in her son's care. She needs to be able to hold him and talk to him. She needs to be there for him.
With their twin girls, I & P at home, they can't just pick up and go whenever they please. Child care costs money. The extra gas costs money. Lost hours at work cost money...and this is simply money that they do not have. I have seen the Internets move mountains to help each other out in times of crisis...and friends...she needs a miracle. If you go to her blog, she has a DONATE button in the upper, right corner. Please consider helping this family out. They need a miracle.
If anyone has any fund raising ideas, please shoot me an e-mail and let me know your ideas. I can't do much by myself, but together we can make a difference. Let's help a sister out...
