LightAide for Leah!

The most common question/comment I get about having sextuplets is "How do you do it?"  My response..."don't.  I have a phenomenal support system and God is always looking out for my family."  I have countless examples.  The latest came in an anonymous email yesterday that said:

Twas two weeks before Christmas
Amidst all the stress
With more important things to worry about
Than an online contest

It can be hard sometimes to
Enjoy the Christmas season
Maybe now it will be a little easier
And here is the reason

Leah's LightAide has been ordered,
Just waiting on UPS
Merry Christmas from the Perkins XOM (ExxonMobil) Support Team
To a family that deserves the best

We were a little in shock when we read this- but of course I appreciated the rhymey poem!  I cannot thank you all enough for the time you spent voting for Leah this past week!  The amount of people voting, sharing with everyone they know, and getting creative on how to get extra votes  was astounding to me.  There's nothing better than seeing so many people care about your child.  This whole experience has yet again proven that we have the best support system ever!!!  


  1. So glad to hear that Leah and her siblings will be able to enjoy using this wonderful device!

  2. That's fantastic! Also because I forgot to vote this weekend, and I was feeling guilty.

  3. So glad that Leah is getting the device.
