Karson has spent many days and nights in the hospital, but I can’t imagine a child and family who is there over the Holidays… The holidays are supposed to be magical. As a parent, there is nothing harder than to see your child suffer. You pray for the times they smile. As a family, we wanted to help make children’s stays a bit brighter… and in turn, their parents. All it took was a quick call to Baird 5 at the UVM Children's Hospital and we were given ages and genders of children to shop for. Easy. I pray it makes their burden a bit lighter, the child hope, and the parents the best gift they could possibly receive during this overwhelmingly hard time ~ their child’s smile. I’ll never forget the days of Karson not speaking to either Cole or I after his first surgery… he was so broken and we had no idea how to lift his spirits and bring him back. Then this gentleman walked in and asked if he wanted to make paper airplanes and everything changed. I will never ever forget that man ~ or the gift that he gave every one of us ~ Karson’s beautiful smile and spirit back.
We’ve done things like this as a family for years and I pray my babies will do the same with their families. One of my favorite traditions.
I received a gift today in my email… You probably wouldn’t think of it as such, but I do. Every time I get an email from Amazon Smile letting me know that Hope for Miracles has received a quarterly donation, it warms my heart.
It’s so easy to set up ~ instructions are below in pics for both app use and website use.
It is no cost to you and such a blessing to us.
Thank you for considering choosing Hope for Miracles as your Amazon Smile charity.

I bet the conditions were great at Whiteface...
Lots of snow fun the last couple of days. Sledding , decorating , snow ball fights and we were pretty lucky to only have lost our power for an hour. Lots of great memories made… Karson’s sisters are still no fun . They didn’t slide once .
