Mary DuPre did this sign for Parker’s House and I absolutely love it.  She is one of the most talented artist I have ever met and if you’ve never checked her out I suggest you do.  I love her work and I’ve purchased many of her frames for Parker’s pictures and for birthday gifts and I have a couple plaques of hers in our home too.  She handpaints each piece so no two pieces are exact.  When I got this yesterday I was so anxious to get it out of the box I almost cut myself with the knife trying to get the tape cut and then when I saw it I couldn’t help but tear up.  It’s so amazing to me that Parker’s life had more meaning than Ashley and I could ever have dreamed of.   I cannot wait to put this in Parker’s House!

CDH Updates.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on October 5, 2008

There is quite a bit going on lately and I wanted to take a minute to update. 

First, John Michael Larson, was born October 4th at 4:12 p.m. in Denver, Colorado.  He has a Carepage (johnmichaellarson) and his parents, Nik and Megan update it often.  Go check it out and leave a message of support.  They are an awesome family!

Secondly, Baby Carter, will be here sometime early to mid Tuesday.  Kellie will be induced tomorrow at 8 p.m. so please keep them in your prayers.  We are very fond of Brad and Kellie and are anxious about Carter’s arrival. 

I have added some pictures from the dedication.  Once downloading them I realized that I didn’t take hardly any pictures.  It’s hard to be a hostess and a photographer.  So next event we’ll hire a photographer! 

We are in the process of planning our Launch Party which will be December 6th and our newest event Heels for Hope™ which will be March 28, 2009.  It’s a shoe decorating and designing contest to support CDH and bring awareness to the birth defect.  It will be a month long event starting the last week of February and going to the 28th of March celebrating Congenital Diphragmatic Hernia Awareness Day and month.  There will be prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.  I’ll give more infor as we get closer to the date.  We are super excited about this event!  There will be a big party on the 18th with some awesome judges!  If you want to participate you can!  And if you want to come you can do that too! 

Well, it’s getting late and I need to wrap up a few projects before I head to bed.  Please remember to always keep CDH families in your thoughts and prayers.

The Dedication.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on September 30, 2008

Went really well.  We had a great time and the turn out was good.  It was so nice to meet Kellie, Brad and Lucy.  And it was awesome to see Russell and April again.  And her parents Debbie and Roy.  There was tons of good food and the best cupcakes in the world!  I think they were the hit of the party!  I’ve used The Cupcake Shppe Bakery before and once again we were not disappointed.  YUMMY!  Below is a picture I took from Kellie’s blog because I haven’t downloaded mine yet.

Thanks for all the prayers and thoughts.  We are so blessed by the foundation and what it is doing for CDH families.  I am constantly amazed at the support we have and the countless emails I receive daily from families affected by CDH.  We will never stop supporting CDH families and with each year we’ll get closer to finding a cause and one day a cure.

Prayers for Two CDH Babes.

Posted by Jessica Singletary on August 12, 2008

Leah spent her 3rd birthday in the hospital yesterday. From what the Doctor could see, it looks like she
may have re-herniated a loop of small bowel.  Please keep this family in your prayers.  If I hear of an update I will post as soon as I can.

Also, The Myers, Kellie and Brad, who are due to deliver Carter in two months were admitted to Duke early this morning.  They are trying to stop labor.  They are the next family staying at Parker’s House.  Please keep them in your prayers as well.  Once I hear something from Kellie or Brad I’ll update!
