The day before Thanksgiving, Jamie and I went back to Columbia to take more gift cards and meet with our second family! We were really excited that we had the opportunity to help more families. God has been so good to this foundation - we've been able to meet our goal for the next two quarters.

We were able to meet our second family, the Kennebecks. They had twin boys at 25 weeks - born mid-October. Their names are Camden and Masen and they are super cute! They will most likely be in the NICU until the end of December, but are hoping for an early release. We were able to meet and spend time with the mom, Chelsea. The dad, Michael, was in Afghanistan. I can't imagine going through all of this without my husband there. Please pray for this family as they still have a long journey ahead of them! Here is a picture Chelsea and her boys.

Our friends donated the diaper bag and everything in it (to include adorable monogrammed onesies!). Thank you Matt and Erica!

Mary Kay offer

I've been praying for some fundraising ideas and one landed in my email! Carrie Kuster was my nurse when I was in the hospital when Alyssa was born. She is a wonderful person and I truly appreciate her generous offer! Please pass this around!

Here is what Carrie is offering...

For the month of November when you place a Mary Kay order with me (Carrie Kuster) and say you are doing it on the behalf of the Hold My Heart Foundation, I will be donating 60% of my earnings to the foundation and covering your shipping costs!! What a great way to do some holiday shopping and support a great foundation!

You can place your order by messaging me on Facebook or visiting my website at

I have gifts for all the ladies and men too! Lots of great cologne's, perfumes, body washes, lotions, skin care, and makeup options to choose from!

Please feel free to email me with any questions.

God Bless!
