Comfort and Joy

I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will
give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.
Jeremiah 31:13

Birthday Donation

For Austin's birthday party he wanted his friends to bring a gift that he could donate to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.  He helped me create a Wish List on Amazon that his friends could choose gifts from.  The list was based upon items that the Child Life Specialist had given me that boys his age could use while sick in the hospital.  We decided the PICU (Pediatric Intensive Care Unit) was the best place for him to donate the gifts.  The PICU is where his big brother spent all 55 days of his life so it was extra special to our family.
Austin and I drove down to Le Bonheur and met David at the hospital.  We walked the halls with him and talked about the different parts of the hospital.

We then met Jamie, the PICU Child Life Specialist in the PICU waiting room and donated the gifts to her.  I am so thankful for Le Bonheur and the impact it had on my family so I loved seeing my precious boy give back to a place that we love.
So proud of Austin and his giving heart!
