Living my new normal


  • I am so sorry for that piece of mail that arrived at this time of year. I wish there was an alert system in place that could monitor that kind of thing. I LOVE the way that your family gives back and how C is involved. This kiddo is going to have so many volunteer hours for JNHS and NHS when he's older and lots to add to his future applications and resumes. It's so AWESOME and I know that it all helps the heart to do something positive and give back to others.



  • I'm sorry. There are no words. It was thoughtless.

  • So sorry you received that NICU flyer in the mail at this difficult time for you. That would really bother me too. Thinking of you! That is so incredibly awesome that C asked for donations instead of presents for his birthday! What an incredibly mature thing to do!

  • I am so sorry that you got that piece of mail.  I know how bulk mailings work but there HAS to be a way for someone to filter out things like that so that parents who've lost a child don't have to be slapped in the face by something like that when they're just checking their mail.

    I'm so impressed with C's sense of giving and his capacity for love.  What a great kid you have there.


  • I'm so sorry that you had to get that mail right now. I am however ecstatic that your little boy is so giving and nurturing and wants to give back to kids in the hospital and forego his own toys.  I am not sure my 7 year old would be willing to do such a thing!

    Thinking of you this month.

    Love and Hugs


  • Sigh....I'm so sorry. You'd seriously think they'd have a system to keep something like this from happening. Sending you hugs. And what a sweet, giving boy you have there.

    Many hugs,


  • I'm sorry that mailer hit during this emotional time. Can you send it back with a note to be taken off the mailing list -- and why? Colin is an amazing little boy -- so full of heart, and that is thanks to you and your husband.

    hugs and love.
