Each year I try to find some way to share some Christmas spirit and love for the holidays. It could be something like donating new toys to Toys For Tots, donating non-perishables to the local food bank or making preemie hats for NICU babies.
This year I signed up to make NICU hats for the little babies at our local hospital again. I still remember the feeling that I had when I received a knitted hat for little Miss S when we left the hospital. So, I will probably do that as well… every year that I can.
But this year I decided to do something extra… I am going to send a Christmas card to a little girl who is very sick. I found her story because my friend posted the news article on her facebook page. The story was so touching and it is such a simple wish that this amazing girl and her family have this holiday season that I couldn’t help trying to fulfill it!
Little Addie is 6 years old, and when she was just 3 years old she stopped growing which has caused her to only weigh 23 pounds. The doctors don’t know what is wrong with her… but they say she will probably only live roughly a year more.
Addie loves checking the mailbox and seeing if anything is for her… I mean what kid doesn’t! So, her Mother is asking everyone to send a Christmas card for her. They hope to cover every wall in their house with them!
If you would like to help by sending Addie and her family a Christmas card please send it to: Box 162, Fountain Green, UT 84632.
