A Beautiful Baby & Determined Fighter

Brian and Bobbie Doyle, while new to the role, are the strongest parents I know. Truly inspiring. Their gorgeous little girl, Evelyn, was born on March 19th, 2009 and was only shortly later diagnosed with Leukemia. As you'll learn from their blog, this is one tough princess! It is so clear where her strength comes from.

I know that lots of other young families check in to our blog from time to time. While it is heart wrenching to see such a petite and precious infant in the midst of such a fight, I so strongly feel that their family could use all the love and support that can be given. It's impossible for me to read their updates without frequent, emotional pauses. So please, even if in reflection, prayer, energy, or whatever, send them all the love you can muster. Let's help Evelyn and her family lick this illness once and for all! We love you Evelyn, Bobbie, & Brian. ...and Evelyn, we send warm hugs and soothing kisses. Stay strong little one.

Cadence LOVES Oatmeal...

well, actually she LOVES blueberries in the oatmeal!!!

She has been making her mommy proud these days and eats 1/2 cup of oatmeal a couple days a week. This day she was sick and wanted oatmeal for breakfast and dinner. Today she ate her oatmeal without the berries...thank god!
