I want to tell you all about a little girl named Harper. This is Harper:
Harper is 5 years old and happens to be the oldest daughter of my dear friend Katie. I am blessed to be what she calls “one of her grown-up friends”. You see, Ryan and Katie were the first of our group to have kids, and Harper was the first baby in the group so she holds a special place in all of our hearts. Harper is the sweetest little girl with the MOST infectious personality. I know God has big plans for this little one.
If you all follow me on twitter, you may or may not remember me tweeting about a little girl losing 3 fingers in a boat-lift accident back in June. Well, sweet Harper is the little girl I was talking about.
I won’t go into all of the details of what happened (you can read about it on this site: Harper’s Healing), but Harper has had to have 4 surgeries thus far (and there is more to come).
The Hobbies are the sweetest family you’ll ever meet, and Katie has been such a good friend to me. She has had the best attitude during these past few incredibly trying months. She has acted in such incredible trust and faith in God and has truly inspired me (Katie I love you, girl).
Anyhow, Ryan and Katie have 3 beautiful children (Harper being the oldest). Katie is a stay at home mom. With all of Harper’s surgeries, they have accrued some serious medical expenses… we’re talking $10,000.
I know money is tight for everyone these days, but I’ve had Harper on my heart and felt the need to post about it over here to put it out there in the “blogging world”. If you are able and feel led to help out, another friend of mine started a website where people can donate money to help our dear friends out with their medical expenses. Every little bit helps, and I know that they would so appreciate.
Please go visit: Harper’s Healing and read Harpers story and donate if you can!
