Since then we had the opportunity to attend National Karate Institute's Award ceremony where they generously donated all proceeds from their Chinese auction raising an AMAZING $1,708! We want to thank everyone there for all of the support we received with a special thanks to Master Kim and the Trabold family for going out of their way to get Doug to China, and also to the whole NKI group for all their donations as well. With all this help we will be to China in no time!
We finally got our Doug’s Journey t-shirts in! They are $15 a shirt plus $2 for shipping (if necessary). They come in sizes s-2xl. If you are interested please contact us via email or by phone.
Doug now likes to blow kisses and it is the CUTEST thing ever! He also likes to pat his heart when we talk to him about love and tell him he will never be alone because there are many many people who hold him in their hearts, and they are in his as well. He can now stand himself up in the middle of the room with no help. It may only be for seconds, but those seconds will turn to minutes which will turn to hours and then I will be hollering at him to just SIT DOWN! Ha ha. He continues to move forward and show he will not let his vision slow him down! Recently he started saying Mama… it comes out more like bma bma but this momma right here will take what she gets! She’s only been waiting the last 16 months to hear it! All in all he is doing really well!
Doug will never forget all the help he is receiving (we won’t let him). He may be young now, but this is going to impact the rest of his life and to know how many people care and want to help is just an amazing thing! THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU!
