Our little guy was born Dec. 13, 2011 and has grown so much in a year. Born so early and so little, at just one pound, 14 ounces, he’s grown to be a very happy and healthy little boy.

We want to express a big, “Thank you” to all the people who put together the benefit for our family last March: Brooke Melville, Kerry Andrews, Frankie Robertson, Jason Davis, and to Oren and Peggy Combs at The Rumor Mill for hosting at The Rumor Mill for hosting such a beautiful event. Thank you to Kels Boreen, Josh Clauson and Julia and the Dream for playing your beautiful and rockin’ tunes.

So many thoughtful and generous donators too: Cindy Destaffany at The Gourmet’s Galley, Sandy and Ron at Mosquito Fleet, Tommy and Diana Pieples, Lloyd and Myah Thompson, Sandpebble, Ositos, Pelindaba Lavender, Sarah Jensen, Tasha Frey, Robin Blair, Sue Burns, Mike Walliman at Civilized Society, Nomi Ross, Terry Ogle, Isla Botanica, Amara Zee, Loea, Ryan’s Rhodies, Francie Hansen, Spa d’Bune, Harper Poesy, Gentry Aesthetics, Downriggers, Earnies, Market Chef/Western Prince, Roy’s Espresso, San Juan Roasting Co., Mi Casita, Haley’s, Raelene Casaday, Paublitos, Basics One on One Marion Melville, Sarah Clauson, Daisy Bloom, Skyline Treecare, Cask and Schooner, Community Theatre, The Nelsons, Terese Smith, Bountiful Herbs, Laura Bell, Paula West, Jeanne Niland, San Juan Outfitters, High Seas Tuna, Sweet Earth Farms, Jodi Digiacomo, Michael and Mary Bruels, Mark Cummingham, The True Spokes, and Summer Meltdown Festival. Thank you!
