A little #throwbackMonday to our Sparrow Hospital days with Allison. This particular visit was about a week long after a scary CPR event at home. Over the course of the week I was able to leave our hospital room just a handful of times – a couple of quick showers, a couple of runs down the hall for coffee or pop from the machine, and a few chance meals from the cafeteria when a Child Life volunteer was able to sit with Alli. The rest of the time I relied on a few snacks brought up by friends and the two “light meal” trays a day provided by the hospital to get by. That’s […]

We are humbled and honored to announce our participation in the US CuddleCot Campaign Initiative, a grant writing campaign organized and led by Stories of Babies Born Still (S.O.B.B.S.).

After Alli passed away in January 2015 we knew that we needed to find a way to honor her memory and help other families that were fighting for their sick children. It was one year ago this week that I presented the idea of a memorial foundation for our sweet daughter to a small group of friends and family, and we set in motion plans to begin bringing care packages to Sparrow Health System just a couple of short weeks later. We are quickly approaching the first week of May and the anniversary of that first delivery and plan to celebrate it with the delivery of our 2,500th care package! I can […]
