I am speechless.
Brooklyn's benefit last night was in one word "amazing!" We do not have an official count but the girls tell me based on the silent auction "bidders" and the number of dinners sold there were between 350 and 400 people there last night. That is just unbelievable to me. It was so touching, the amount of love shown to our little girl last night was incredible! The night raised over $13,000 dollars. I can barely type that amount, it is amazing to me. We are so blessed to have such support from our family, friends, our church, and our small town. The money will be placed in her trust to be used for adaptive equipment or other medical costs that come down the road, a big cost in a year or two will also be an adaptive van as well.
The words "thank you" just do not seem to cover it. God showed us his love last night through so many people! Rett Syndrome has taken away so much from our family and this past year has been tough. (Really, really tough.) However, nights like last night show us how many people love us and it that support that enables us to stay strong. Thank you to everyone!
