So I owe some of you a very BIG thank you! The Project Eli director, Julie Mayberry, attended the national conference and spoke on Monday evening. She had around 50 in attendance but said through out the conference as she met people and told them who she was and what she was promoting, she received a lot of "I've seen this before!" and "I've heard of this". She's not a blogger but told me it must have been this blog and the connections that you amazing families have on here. To date, the Project E.L.I. documentary has been handed out to 2,000 families, clinics, or physicians! It also has close to 900 hits on YouTube. We are all saving babies lives! Haven't seen it yet? Here's the link to watch the 30-minute documentary on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSKgPMv4QPQ
Please know that they were able to do this because of donations and are still relying on donations to make more copies to pass out. If you or your organization wants to help, please check out Eli's First Giving Page:
Eli's birthday is coming up in 4 weeks. He would be 2 years old. We are faced with having to celebrate their birthday again this year, as every year for now on, with only Walker. Its the most dreadful week to celebrate 2 births and a death all in one week. It's getting harder to breath again, as I felt this last year. Please say a little prayer for Eli on August 3rd. And hug your babies tight.
