**Excuse the annoying Mom cheer :)
She isn't quite consistent on it yet, but she's definitely getting the hang of it.
Roll Laney Roll!
My name is Amber Frey and I would like to nominate my sister-in-law Emmalee Hinton for the Sussy Project! About 1 year ago to the day we almost lost our first baby of the family. Elena Catherine was just 4 months old when she was taken by ambulance to Riley Hospital one afternoon. She was in the care of her nanny that had been watching her for about a month. Emmalee had just returned to her job that she loved at KWK Management Group. Long story short, Elena had an accident that day and we still don’t know the whole story. We spent that day and every day after that at Riley Hospital for the next 6 weeks. Elena had many major surgery’s and was in ICU for 2-3 weeks. Elena is a such strong girl and survived. There have been many challenges along the way and Emmalee has given 100% of herself every day to Elena’s recovery. Emmalee and her husband Chad are an inspiration to me everyday. You can read more about their story here: http://www.ourshininglight.blogspot.com and here: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/chademmaleeandelenahinton/journalThank you!
This morning I received a knock at my door and received a kind (and totally surprise!) delivery of cupcakes. I immediately burst into tears at the thought of someone nominating me to receive this gift. I had missed the email on Friday announcing my upcoming delivery and that my amazing sister-in-law had shared our story. My Husband and I struggled through this past weekend, as it was the year anniversary of my 16 month old daughter suffering a life-changing brain injury. Throughout this past year, we have been overwhelmed by people’s kindness and love for our family. The Sussy Project serves as yet another example of the goodness in people’s hearts and their desire to bring a smile to someone’s face. Even though we are in the midst of a very difficult journey, it’s little things like this that are a great reminder of what is important. We will certainly enjoy our treats this week and look forward to sharing them with Elena’s therapists who also work tirelessly for her recovery. Thank you Sussy Project for bringing warmth into our home today…you can guarantee we will be paying it forward!
