User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeThere are no words to say, 'Thank you', everything I can think of doesn't come close to the gratitude that the heart of my wife and I feel. Our van has been in the shop and done for several months now. Our new baby has health issues and faces several surgeries, and we desperately needed our second vehicle. Our family member had lent us their second vehicle to use until we were able to get on our feet, however, my sister in law got a new job and had to have the car back. Today, I hit a deer going to work, and now we have no vehicle at all. Our insurance will pay for the repairs in full, but it will be a week or more before we get it back... our baby is scheduled for his first surgery... we didn't know how we could even do it. Then this evening, we get an email stating that our funding came through...what a precious miracle...and it was so welcomed this day. We will pay your kindness forward as soon as we get on our feet. We will always be indebted to modest needs....thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Attached is a photo of our precious children....

Need To Pick Up Van From The Shop

My Story:

We are a two-parent family who are the proud parents of a little girl 5 1/2 and newborn baby boy who will be 2 months old on the 24th. He has some serious health issues with a severe cleft palate and lip. He is facing surgery in the next four weeks. His first consultation is 8/25 and surgery will follow that.

Then within 4-6 weeks after that he has a second this precious baby boy is two months old the 24th and faces two surgeries within 8-10 weeks. Our dilemma is that our van is in the shop with the repairs finished. I work hard to enable my wife to stay home full time, and have paid as much as I can on our bill, however, I just don't have it to go pick up our van.

On top of it our car died Friday and we are now using a family members car. But, that is putting them out and stranding my sister in law at home. After our baby's surgeries there will be weekly follow-ups. If we can get this funded we would be so appreciative. We just so much want to enjoy our baby and not worry about our vehicle and how we are going to do this...

Please help us. We will send a photo with our thank you letter once granted our request. We will gladly and thankfully also find a way in the future to pay forward your kindness and will begin giving our change weekly to help someone else. Thank you for reading and God Bless you all.
