Sheesh, thank you so much for your role in helping me to help this family in need. I hope all who have been blessed with healthy children and grandchildren will respond to this family's situation as their needs are great. I covet prayers for guidance and strength as I work to help this family.
Love your photo and cherish the sentiment. #3689712

Fabulous portrait, Sheesh! It is my hope that we might build a strong chain of loving friends across the country to help Memphis and his family...and to help Nina give them hope for the future. We have a strong link in that chain here in the Heartland!

I have watch Nina and listened to her on the phone working really hard for this special child. What a wonderful shot and dedication for your wonderful theme.

Carla Metzler 12/11/2006 6:16:19 AM

Unless we have been there we can never know the pain, worry, and the feeling of helplessness when our child or grandchild is suffering a serious illness. We can only imagine. I think it is wonderful that you and Nina have reached out to help this family. They need all the hope we can offer, be it money, prayers, or both.
Excellent portrait and theme shot, Sheesh.

Click on the link below and you can read his story and see the pictures of Memphis. As a mother of three children I am moved deeply by the trials and tribulations of this young family.
