Can You Help?

I don't know this family, just ran across a posting on the Yakima Craigslist, they are asking for girls 6 month and 16 month clothing donations. They put a link to a website explaining their situation. The 6 month old, Ivy, has been at Seattle Children's Hospital for 2 months! If you are interested read their story. They could use our prayers, and more if you have a donation. Here is the website: http://www.caringbridge.com/visit/ivyashlock
