The Circle Grows


I am humbled today.  Emma Kait's story.....well really, it's no longer just her story, is reaching out.  It is becoming YOUR story, in every act of participation. Her Face of Faith is touching others and they in turn, are compelled to give, to love, to offer, to gift us in ways unimaginable to us.  In the last 48 hours we have been on the receiving end to many of these gifts of pure love and I must share my thankful heart, a mother's heart that swells with appreciation,  thankfulness and utter peace.  You are surrounding us with love and support.  Emma's circle of influence is growing, out of our reach, yet that circle is coming around her to protect, provide and carry.

I must share two messages that I received just his morning.  The first is from a wonderfully generous friend of a friend who is designing and making a very special bracelet for Emma Kait's journey.  Please read the blog entry she posted this morning:

From Dawn

Also,  a company in Washington State makes beautiful head scarves and donates them to cancer patients free of charge.  This personal message was sent to me.

Dear Rebecca,

Last week we sent Emma a beautiful It’s a Wrap in our silk print called Aqua Stripe. Affixed to one of the tails of her It’s a Wrap you will find a small Swarovski Good Wishes fairy as a symbol of hope and Good Wishes from our team.
Thank you for contacting us on Emma’s behalf; please know that there is a small village of us in Washington State rooting for her recovery.

All my best,


Please become a fan of our Good Wishes Facebook Page to follow the wonderful press we receive from the media, our recipients and sponsors.

I sit typing this at her school looking outside at a sunny playground full of kids.  Emma is there.  Her counts were high enough yesterday at her clinic appointment that she was cleared to come to school today and tomorrow.  She is LOVING it.  The normalcy, the noise, the work, she is soaking it in.  I'm so proud of her fellow students.  They don't stare at her thinning hair.  They tell her how cute her many hats looks. They don't treat her differently.  They all greet her with "Hi Emma!" everytime she walks in the door.  This a a place of love and acceptance and understanding and I am so thankful. 

Blessings to you all!
