Bragging about Daddy!!!

I have to tell you just amazing Jason is. Once again his beautiful story about Gabi was pushlished for Families Together, in Topeka. We have worked very closely with a wonderful woman there named Lesli. She actually is the reason Gifts of Gabi's Grace has reached a non profit status. We are under their umbrella, which allows us to use their tax number. We are so lucky to have come in contact with her. She is truly an incredible person. She was lucky enough to have been blessed with meeting Gabi. Families Together had a retreat in Lawrence that we attended earlier this year and everytime I would check on Gabi, Lesli was holding her. How could you not fall in love with our little angel???
Jason has worked very closely with Lesli to get our status and I could not be happier. So now all you people who need to make dontaions for tax write off's...remember Gifts of Gabi's Grace. You saw the wonderfult things we did with Santa's Little Helpers. Your donations are greatly appreciated! Please feel free to email me with any interest in doing so!

So back to my incredible husband! Not only did the story go out again, he asked Lesli if he could speak at any upcoming conferences. He secretly would love to be a professional motivational speaker. Anyone who has ever met him or listen to him speak about things he believes in you can understand why this would be the perfect dream job! Well Lesli did have an opportunity for him. He will be speaking in February, I don't remember when or where, but I will post that at a later date. He will be speaking to other dad's giving his Perspective of a Dad. He may even be a key speaker on the last day, but we are waiting to hear back on that. He is just such a passionate individual. I definitely believe it all has to do with his life experiences. He has been through and survived so much in his short time here. And with our most recent tragedy, he has become even more passionate about his beliefs. So daddy I just want you to know just how proud of you we are, we can't wait to hear you speak in Feb. and who knows what can come from that!!!

What a remarkable Dad! I am continually touched and inspired by how both of you have taken your tragedy and turned it into so much good. You do Gabi's memory so proud. Again I'm not sure I'd be as productive and positive, I hope I would be, such a strength you have. You're right to brag about Daddy because he rises above and beyond all expectations. I think he should be a motivational speaker, I truly hope this area blossoms for you.

Micah, I hope you're well, I think of you daily and rejoice in your new blessing.
