What an amazing morning we had at the A. I. duPont Hospital or Children -- the place where we lived the past 3 1/2 years, the place that we not only started Gavin's life but also watched it end -- our second home. This place has given our family so much -- much more than just caring for the medical needs of our sick little boy. This place gave us comfort, hope, friendship and the people in this hospital walked us through some of our darkest times -- always there ready to listen and support us. With that said, it feels so incredibly awesome to give back to the place that has given us so much!
Our family spent to morning with some of the hospital staff taking photos and handing out the bins of BabyLegs to the staff from many units of the hospital so they could take them back and give them to the children as they need them. Due to the current strict visitation policies due to the flu we were not able to walk around to all the units but we were able to spend from time on our unit 3E. They dedicated a closet to our little boy where items can be stored that are donated for the children of that unit. It was an amazing feeling to see Gavin name right on the wall -- making an impact.
Thanks again to all the people who made this campaign possible. Thanks to all who donated. Thanks to BabyLegs for matching our donations and really taking this little fundraiser to the next level. Thanks to the Hospital staff for welcoming our donation. Most importantly thanks to my little boy for teaching us all about hope, love and joy and giving us the strength to keep your spirit strong -- making an impact and changing lives!
