    You have had lots of mysteries with Katie, but with your loving care, constant observations and prayer have managed to find many answers.  Prayers for all of you!

    We would love to break that $20,000. figure for Katie's Spring Shower Vision! Sunday is the last day for online donations, but other options remain open as we move toward her 30th birthday on the 15th. We are humbled and awed by the response to this project. Echoing Cathy's closing shout, "Praise God"!

    Dear Katie,

    Wonderful news about the current funds raised for your new bedroom and bath. I have been praying about that since the fund raising began. I have noticed that in SS you have been sliding around in your wheelchair. I just thought we were boring you. Know that you and your family are first on my prayers list every single night.

    Katie, Josh, Mom, and Dad, Keep on keeping on....Blessings and Love, Terry :-)

    Dear Katie - We are so blessed in our effort to make your spring shower vision a reality! The online venue, your HRBC family and many others who love you and are inspired by your faith and courage have joined hands to bring you a wonderful 30th birthday. We know God is faithful with us in this effort, just as he has been in your life. He is indeed awesome when it comes to caring for his family!

    Yay!  I am excited both for the writing and the construction beginning soon :)  And I have to say that Katie is blessed to have 3 therapists in you, Uncle Joe!

    Dear Katie,
    I am so excited that your new room will soon start construction!  I'm sure that having your own space will be wonderful for you.

    I know it's been said before but Katie you are blessed with the most awesome parents!  God certainly knew and continues to know his plans for you!
    God bless you and your family!

    Love the picture! So glad to hear your fundraising is going so well for Katie's bedroom.  Can't believe Katie is going to be 30!! and I really can't believe Joe you are going to be 60!?! Oh my goodness! Weren't we just in our 20"s!!  Keep up the great work Katie, can't go wrong with the parents you were blessed with.
    Love & prayers,

    On April 15th, Katie will celebrate her 30th birthday. Wouldn't a shower of her very own be the ultimate birthday gift? Working together, in God's love, we can make that a reality!

    It is good to read about Katie's progress and the progress of the plans for your renovations.
    We pray for all of you daily and send our love.
    We love you, Katie!
