Help me help this family

Help me put the “Fun” in Fundraising.

Michelle Stamipn' Convention '08
I have a down-line member that I’d like to introduce you to.  Her name is Michelle.  Some of you may have met her, but I know many of you haven’t.  I met her about 10 years ago when she was my son’s first grade teacher.  It was her first year teaching and we became instant friends.  I even had the privilege of attending her wedding.  We continued our friendship even after my son moved to the next grade.  I invited her to my open house when I first became a demonstrator and she joined my club.  This was a perfect opportunity to get to know her better.  She ended up moving to Morgan, but would still travel once a month to come to club.  Eventually she became my first recruit.

She continued to teach in Morgan, but her and her husband desperately wanted children of their own.  After being told she couldn’t have children they decided to adopt.  Almost three years ago they adopted a beautiful little boy.  I consider her quite a courageous women, because she was willing to adopt this little boy who has down syndrome and had to have open heart surgery in his first year.

18 months later they decided that they wanted to get back on the list for adoption.  They were just finishing the process when she discovered they’d beaten the odds, she was pregnant.  This was such a miracle for them.  Her son was born 5 weeks early.  He was also born with 2 left kidneys which he will have to have surgery for.  Before he left the hospital he failed his hearing test.

Since then they have tried many things, but they’ve decided what will work best is a special surgery for hearing aids.  He was approved for this surgery however it is very expensive.  The insurance will pay 22% but that still leaves over 100,000.00 that they must pay for their son to be able to hear. Here’s a link to their blog if you would like to learn more.

This little family has been through so much.  I think Michelle is such an amazing women to care for these little boys.  She quit her job to so she could take care of them.
