For Afton Jean

Every day I feel gratitude for Laurel and Violet; I truly do. But I have squeezed them extra tight every day since learning about Kami Bigler's daughter Afton Jean being born at 26 weeks (12.7 ounces). If you have not yet read Kami's posts, you should. They reflect incredible courage and grace -- Kami's positive, light-filled spirit seems near impossible in the face of what she and her family have endured; she inspires me to be better. I learned from my friend Allison that a fund has been set up to help Kami's family. I have seen firsthand how this community can make awesome things happen -- I've contributed to fundraisers and spearheaded them myself. After I publish this post I will head over to Paypal (via the button below) to make a donation. I hope you will consider doing so too.
