Our group of wonderful ladies from Standing Room Only donated to help this happen. The Designers of Boutique Flourish, went to work on these shirts and made one large family say Cheese.
Rein of Standing Room Only has a client with 14 adopted special needs children. She is a single mom and does this all on her own. She will only fost/adopt fetal alcohol and drug syndrome children. She figures she will take the ones that always get left behind.
Anyhow, she went with Rein and her kids on a road trip to Mt. Rushmore with about half the children in tow. Her housekeeper will move in for the week or two to take care of the ones left behind (those will be the ones in wheelchairs that are...absent minded, lack of a better term). I went to an IEP today for one of the children, though three of them happen to go to this school.
They told me they were sad and I asked why. Morgen and Tyler have Mt. Rushmore clothes and they don't! Since, SRO was looking to adopted and help a family which they call their cause Helpful Hands for the children. I
knew it was a big group..but knew the Designers of Boutique Flourish would do anything to make a child smile. SO, the fabric is on sale at joanns.com. and with the help of the Ladies at SRO..it was all possible!!!!
Even though we only took a few the all the kids were giving a shirt custom made....;)
