CHRISTMAS CARD FROM THE BRYANTS

Dear Angie,

I wanted to wish you and all of your WONDERFUL blog readers a MERRY CHRISTMAS!! All of you folks will never know how you have touched Bailee’s life through the shoe and sock drive. There are no words to let you know how much she appreciates your giving hearts!!!! The best way to put it is when Bailee said “It is the best thing that has ever happened to me, I have never had so many shoes!!!"
She has enjoyed picking them out everyday and even matching them to her outfits! Bailee has had several Christmas programs she has been in over the past couple of weeks, and it has been so nice to have all of these beautiful shoes. I have never seen the joy on Bailee’s face like I did when she got all of these shoes and socks! I hope this is the VERY BEST CHRISTMAS EVER for all of you and may you be BLESSED as much as you have BLESSED Bailee!!!!!!

In HIS love,
Rhonda
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL OF YOU!!!!!!!!!!
SIDE NOTE: This letter and photo came from Rhonda tonight. (Bailee's Mom) She asked me if I could post it as a Christmas card from all of them here on my blog so that it would reach each of you who participated in the shoe/sock drive. Believe it or not, we just got another give yesterday for Bailee. We have been sending her shoes every week-two weeks and still have an additional $351 remaining to spend on her thanks to all of you. I'm hoping to spend the remainder of the funds while in Florida for her and ship the shoes/socks directly from there. I know we have shopped out Indiana and hit every store possible around here. We are hoping to find some new variety down south for her. So far, Bailee has received approximately 50 pair of shoes thanks to all of your generosity. I've lost count at this point but I know its been phenomenal for her. Bailee we love you! As do we love you too Brooklyn. We hope you both have a very Merry Christmas. In him, Angie

In touching the life and heart of " Our Sweet Bailee " , you have also in turn touched the lives and hearts of our entire family and none of us will ever be the same because of your kindness !!

Like Rhonda said in her note to you ALL , Bailee has been one " HAPPY " young lady and has been sporting some really COOL shoes and socks over the past few weeks . She will forever be able to share this testimony of the love that ALL of you bestowed on her !!!

As the parents of Brandon ad Rhonda , Bill and I just wanted to say that our hearts are " overflowig " with Thanks for touching not only Bailee but her parents , her sister and even her Grandparents , I know that I speak for Rhonda's Mom and Dad as well ( they do not have a computer ) but I have talked with them and they too do not have words to express how greatful we ALL are for the way you took this need and put a plan into action and then God used it to " Bless " them in a way that you may never know !!

You are surely one of God's chosen " Angels " , spreading your wings to touch people you have never even met ! We love you and your family and pray that God will " Bless " you and your family in a special way and also " Bless " each family who reached out and " gave " to this wonderful cause ! May each of you have a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year !!!!

I am so happy that Bailee is so happy!
It really adds up...everyone can give a little and it makes a lot!!!
It is so funny to tell people the story...they are like how does she know her...how do YOU know her...I have to explain that we are all email/blog "friends"!!! I get some strange looks!
WHen you ship Bailee's shoes from sunny south Florida...can you ship me some warmth and sunshine in freezing cold Columbus?!?!
Happy Holidays to everyone!

Merry Christmas to those two beautiful little girls and their families! It makes my heart warm every time I see their smiling faces! :-)

Hey Angie, have you tried zappos.com for shoes? It's my absolute favorite places...you can sort by price and size as well. They ship FAST. I recall placing an order with them one day around lunch time and having the shoes the next morning.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
