I am so humbled by the outpouring of love from all over the world for our now famous Julian! We have collected - through your generous gifts and the sale of our Cheesy Cross - $1840.65! ...in one week! The numbers I really wish I had are those of all the people praying for sweet Juju! I got so many emails from strangers to Julian stating that money was tight but they were on their knees praying and had forwarded our links to everyone in their family or church! THAT is what makes a miracle! I was brought to tears by a young woman who emailed to say she and her husband were college students and had no extra money to spare but when she went to work that day she got her Christmas bonus...she came home and sent that bonus via PayPal to our fund for Julian! I have had so many people tell me that they emailed Oprah, Ellen, The View, etc. telling them about Julian and our efforts. I truly wish someone would pick up this story simply because it is a beautiful one! A gorgeous testimony to what happens when God's people come together in faith! None of you HAD to give...but yet your heart told you that you should. Many of you couldn't spare the money...but your heart told you to share. As I watch the news filled with shootings and rape, abandoned babies and domestic violence, I can't help but feel that a story like this would bring a little Light into a world that gets darker every day. The 62 of you from 29 different states and 4 different continents should be honored in some way for what you did, for how you sacrificed, for how you freely gave at Christmas time! I pray that the Lord doubly blesses the following people who donated and their families: Charles Mary Denise Sassychics Laura Shirley hmStudios Kristin Julie Vicky Elyse Carrie Nicole Amy Donald Shellie Deborah Ashley Lisa Michelle Brandi Leo Melissa Maureen Lucy Shannon Kim Travis SignFX Tiffany Diane Janet Kristin Marylse Misti Michele Christine Jeanne Kimberley Kirsten Lori John Cheryl Andrea DW Mary Lori Amy Lynda Michelle Daryl Karrie Janna Lisa Lisa Jennifer Thomas Dennis Susan Dina Kathryn Katherine What an army! DON'T STOP PRAYING! A miracle doesn't happen overnight! HANG ON! This is gonna be a good ride!
