I remember the first Christmas that felt like Christmas to my family and I. My mother was a single mom with myself, and my two brothers. We didn’t have much money and it was close to Christmas. I was in the 2nd grade and I can still remember that magical Christmas to this day.

There was a knock at the door and people lined up to bring in boxes after boxes of presents for us and boxes after boxes of food. Someone had adopted my family for the holidays and knew some how. Was it Santa? You just never know. I have always had a place in my heart for whoever it was that year.

Being an adult and having a child of my own, I have always wanted to do something special for families of the sort. After giving birth to my son Brady Allen in August 2009, and him not making it due to his birth defect; Anencephaly. I joined March of Dimes.

The organization has been a healing process for me and I too get to help families in need by walking and donating for research and medications. I want to help families have that magical Christmas as I felt as a child.

To me, helping someone is like that very first snowflake falling from the sky. It tickles your nose as the moon shines down to make your face glow. It is so magical and heart warming. To see a baby or child smile as they see Santa or get the gift they have been wanting. It opens my heart and the warm fuzziness comes out like the first time sipping hot coco.

I want to be able to help families and give them that warmth holiday magical feeling. I want to spread the joy and let the magic continue. Everyone deserves to have holiday spirit inside themselves.

Please help and join me as we come together and make this year a magical year for families who are bringing a baby home for the holidays. Having a new baby, some families don’t know what to get little ones for Christmas or have no money to afford anything. I would like to be able to deliver new baby toys to Jay County Hospital (hospital that delivered Brady) on Christmas day.

Toys may include: plush animals for babies to hold on to during their shots to give them comfort, teething toys for when they start teething, something that sings them to sleep at night, any kind of inexpensive toy will do just fine.

Please send toys to:
