A few days ago I reached out to the families in my neighborhood to donate gently used toys and books to the MUSC Children's Hospital and got a great response! We were able to donate 3 large bags of toys and about 75 books. Looking at the Children's Hospital Wish List on the website was both sad and inspiring. The kids want a lot of typical things but it also called for party supplies and decorations. That means birthdays in the hospital... Parents don't ever want to think of their kids being sick or hurt in any capacity, but sometimes those thoughts creep up on you and even prevent you from sleeping. You can't help it. I make a point to be thankful every day that Liam is 110% completely healthy. He can run, jump, and play freely.
Maybe some of these books and toys are exactly what's needed and will make someone's day a little better.
Thank you to all the Daniel Island families who contributed, and thank you to my sister Chloe for getting her soccer parents involved! Your generosity is spreading to many, many people.
