Looking Back- Nattie's Fundraiser

Month's and eons ago we had a special fundraiser for my sweet niece Nattie who has CdLS... read her story here and more about the event here.  It was a wonderful event that raised over $12,000. Which is a huge help with her ongoing medical expenses. She has since had surgery on her stomach and had a G tube put in and is doing so much better.... She is now 6 months old and hit the 12 pound mark and is in the 90% percentile for her syndrome.

 Here are some photos from the event... totally out of order though.
