Moving Forward

27 Dec

Well, I’m sure you’re all wondering what’s happening here! At least, I hope you are wondering! SO, here’s the update on Gideon’s Feet.

I was thinking the other day about being in PA working at this wonderful theatre in the mountains when I was pregnant with Gideon. I had to got to the dr for a check up while I was there, and I had been concerned about some cramping that I’d been having. I didn’t know this dr and I didn’t have anyone to go with me. When I got to the dr, the nurse could not find Gideon’s heartbeat….he was ok at that time as a sonogram confirmed, and we also found out he was a boy that day and got the first of our few precious pictures of him but I was alone and terrified thru the whole morning. I was thinking how it would have been so helpful to have someone there with me at that appointment, and how I want Gideon’s Feet to meet those kinds of needs as well.

SO…what’s next moving forward? Well, as soon as we get our final approval from the government (still waiting on all the red tape…I suppose I’ll need to get used to it ) we will begin our mission. I already have two nominations in the DFW area for financial aid, and we will do our very best to meet those needs as much as we can and as soon as we can. I am so new to this, and it will take time to get established and effective, but please keep sticking with us. We WILL get there.  I already have lots of ideas for fun events for us to attend together so don’t fret if you missed our fabtastic (it’s a new term…feel free to use it) Christmas Concert there will be lots of opportunities to have fun with Gideon’s Feet and support others.

I do want to take a minute to thank my sweet friend Sadie DeSantis who will be running a 5k in March to raise money for Gideon’s Feet! Sadie is an angel girl and I will let everyone know how we can support her as we get closer.

I hope you all had wonderful holidays and I am looking SO forward to see what we can accomplish in 2012.
