I just read about the adoption. What a beautiful little boy!!! I pray that enough money is raised so that Leslie can adopt him. He needs all the love he can get!!

Oh my goodness! What a wonderful woman she is!!

That's it, the rest of the $$ I was going to spend on C's presents (he already has enough) is going for the raffle. That little boy needs his family more than Connor need material things. I just bought 3 tickets but I'm going back to buy more.

Poor little baby, he's so lucky Leslie came into his life!

My 4th son, Brandon, was born with craniostenosis. (The same condition this little one has although it appears he is facing other issues as well, poor little one) He had brain surgery at 11 weeks of age to correct it. It is an ongoing thing....I really feel for this dear WAHM. I'll be heading back over to buy some tickets. Thanks for posting this!

My brother was also born with it and that was 14years ago... he had his surgery at 7weeks. This is very close to my heart and being that Leslie is a dear friend of mine I wanted to help out

I sent Leslie an email through KHW. She doesn't know me at all but if she needs some cranio resources, etc I have a ton. Would you let her know?

I will, I have talked with her a lot about it since we still to this day get the newsletter from the local support group.

Leslie is being induced today, she was having complications with her pregnancy and her fluid was low so they took her today, so we will be having a baby girl very soon!

Now theres only 53 left. I wonder how much $$$ Leslie is actually needing? It would be great if there would be more added to increase the amount of money they actually raise.

I just looked and there was 83 left.

I guess that they had to put some back in stock.

Only 300 will be sold but you may see the number fluctuate a little due to undersold tickets. Just didn't want to confuse anyone
