As if we were not blessed enough by our Lake County and Rockford families, we have a Missouri family that we adore! This weekend Jodelle paddle surfed 11 miles for Jayden and Brooklyn to raise awareness and funds for us. Last year, she did a solo trip but this year, she was joined by friends who either paddle boarded or kayaked. Brooklyn and I flew down to support their efforts and celebrate Jodelle’s birthday. It was so much fun and they all were so awesome! Thank you, Missouri family, for all your support, prayers, and for embracing us like we are your own! We love you!
