Coming Soon: State of Kind #2

Hello all!!  I apologize for being off the grid the past few months.  I will have a full update when I post the next state of kind, but life has been crazy hectic since my son was born November 29th.  As I stated on the last post, he was born with a genetic issue called 22q Deletion Syndrome (learn more about it here) and that has lead to us spending most of the past 2 months at Lurie Children's Hospital.  The care we have received there has been tremendous, and I have a couple of things planned to give back as a thank you for everything they've done to help Cohen (especially those wonderful nurses).  In the mean time, I have an awesome, super easy, and free act of kindness for everyone to take part in.  Lurie (my son's hospital) is trying to get 10,000 people to send over a Valentine's Day message for the kids who will be in the hospital on the holiday.  There are many children there who are not able to see their friends or family for an extended period of time, and receiving a special message will be wonderful for them.  As I said, it is incredibly easy and can be done here.  So keep an eye out for the next State of'll be a real peach.


  1. Thank to Internet I now know about this project! Already sent my Valentines message, will tell all my collegues (I am a pediatric nurse in Switzerland, Europe) to do the same. Great idea!!
