Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.

New Fund Purchases

On Monday I went down to LeBonheur and spent a few hours there. While I was there I met with Foundation about the Fund making a donation to the new hospital, did a radio a thon interview (which will broadcast on FM 100 end of August), and met with some moms whose babies are in the NICU. I also represented the Fund by giving the NICU our newest donations. The Forrest Spence Fund donated a new microwave to the NICU that will help the breastfeeding moms to clean their supplies. We also donated a new digital camera and printer dock so the nurses can take pictures of the babies doing the first of things, first time smiling, first time off ventilator, etc, and print the pictures on the spot for parents. The pictures below show the newest program we are starting with the NICU. The Fund donated 250 bags that each include a journal with a pen attached (so parents, doctors, staff can take notes in the same journal), an Angel Dear Lovie (which Angel Dear so graciously donated in memory of Forrest who slept with 2 Angel Dear Lovies every moment of his life), and breast feeding/pumping supplies along with a letter from David and and I. We are so excited about this new program and helping support the NICU with the initiative to get as many moms as possible to breastfeed for their sick babies. It makes such a difference in the sick babies lives.
