I have always been blessed by having many supporters who work at Microsoft and today we are now part of the matching funds and giving campaign through Microsoft. It looks as though a new friend and supporter is rounding up some working capital for us through his program.
Receiving the 501c3 designation opens new doors to serve the families without so much worry about funding. Today one of my new clients and amazing new friend and supporter offered support generously and has made efforts to help with staffing and a fund raiser before the show in October. She and her new husband have seen the mission clearly and have opened their hearts in love and generosity. I thank them and I am honored by their compassion. Tonight as I edit the latest photos for a Soul child, I do it with memories of the tears of love this wonderful supporter shed today as she gave so generously........I hope she and her husband are blessed with the sweetest dreams tonight.
I thank also especially those who are giving in honor of my mother in law, Lainie Johnson, so very touching. Also, your lovely messages have been so very heart warming in this time of loss. Yesterday we received an amazing hand made card with the following quote by Kahlil Gibran: "When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you will see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight."
I am attaching a photo of a recent Soul baby that we lost just 5 days after the photos were taken. I thought she was such a beauty and both her parents were so tender and so loving. I am so pleased that they have agreed to let us include her images in the show and on the web. We received a donation in Serena's honor from the women who were ther mom's care givers in childbirth, seems so very thoughtful of these women.
