Don't Forget!

Zac and I will be answering phones for the Children's Miracle Network this afternoon from 3-4. We would love to hear from you. If you get Peoria channels, it's on WEEK-TV 25. If you don't, I would assume you can look up the numbers on their website, but I'm not positive. Thanks so much for your support!
Also, if you donated online, would you be so kind as to drop me an email or a comment to this post. I'd like to be able to send a personal "thank you."

Could someone watching on TV please provide a phone number so that maybe we could talk to Zac and Julie?

We donated online, but you do not need to send a thank you! We are happy to support the Children's Hospital!

I hope you guys had fun today! Did you get lots of calls? We donated online but don't you dare send a thank you note. I'm serious! We know you're grateful! I'd rather you spend your time blogging or building amazing lego creations with a certain young man (who by the way, is very proud of his collection) instead of writing thank you notes and I'm sure that everyone else would agree with me!!

Dear Zac and Julie,
We too have a precious son,Craig, with Down Syndrome. Our hearts are heavy with you and your loss of precious Olivia. When Craig was a baby we were in and out of the hospital too. There was about 5 different times that we thought God was going to take him home with Him. Craig is still with us 25years later. Like Olivia, his life has touched so many people. I know that it must be so hard for all of you now and especially in the days ahead. But won't it be neat to watch how God used her precious short life to win many to Him and his love. We have always said that Craig has shown us what the love of God is more than anything else.
Our prayers for all of you are that you will feel God's loving arms of comfort and know that His ways are perfect. Our favorite verses are in Jeremiah 29:11-14a. Those verses have sustained us many times and they still do.
My daughter Heidi Shaull is friends with Judy and has kept me posted about little Olivia. We have been praying for her and you all along. We will continue to keep you and your family in our prayers. Our Craig was also a Miracle child for Hershey Medical Center in Pa. He was never the poster child though. We do have pictures of him and Franco Harris for 3 different years. You are amazing to still do the TV show at this time. One thing we learned in our years at Hershey, when you are in this situation with so many other parents, there is a special bond and you are there for each other. Thank you that even in this sad and yet happy (because little Olivia is now with Jesus and in no more pain and is happier than ever) you are there for others. May God give you peace as you face the days ahead. In Christian Love,
Kurt,Dorie and Craig Lininger

Hi Julie!
We donated on-line but there's no need to send a separate thank you note. I wish we could have watched the telethon. Hope it went well. Judy and Kevin

We mailed on line also. Please do not send a thank you. You have thanked us enough already. Kay and Pat

Ditto. I made a contribution, in Olivia's name, but please, no thank you is necessary.

I made a donation on-line. Please spend time with the kids rather than sending me a thank you. That would be time better spent. Consider it my thank you.

Hi Julie!
We made a donation on-line but absolutely do not send a thank you...I feel I should be thanking you for this wonderful blog and for sharing your sweet Olivia with all of us!
Take care and keeping you all in our prayers!
