Ryan and I attended a Non-Profit Class through the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits today. We both learned so much and got so much information to help us get started in setting up Ella’s Halo. Things don’t seem as daunting or as hard now that we have taken the class…things seem to make a little more sense and the forms don’t seem as scary. It was hard trying to find all the correct forms and paperwork that needed to be done when we were just searching by ourselves. It is so nice to know that we have a reference of professionals who will help us, websites that give us up-to-date information, and a network of others who are in the same position as we are. Now I feel inspired to start working on the first few forms and making our ideas into a reality.

We were also so inspired by the 25 other people in the class today. They are all passionate about their ideas, determined to do whatever it takes to get something started, and genially concerned to help others. I feel that we were surrounded today by good people who are going to help make this place a little better by making their own ideas into realities, just like how we want to make the NICU a little more like home.
