Big Hearts

Ever since Ella came into this world, we have been surrounded by people with big hearts. Whether it is sending us a sweet email, leaving us a sincere message on our voicemail, writing a short note on our caring bridge and now our blog, sending us beautiful cards, giving us a gentle hug, smiling a kind smile, or hearing the prayers that fill the air, we have been surrounded by people who care, love our family, and want to help us make it through this part of our journey.

And on Thursday night, our home was filled with three amazing women who have three of the biggest hearts. We had our first board meeting and my heart was so full with love and admiration for these women. They are taking time out of their own lives to help us accomplish something we have so much passion for, helping other babies and families. Our meeting lasted much longer than was planned, but ideas were pouring out, stories were shared, and love filled our little dining room. After the meeting was over, Ryan and I looked at each other and knew that we couldn’t have asked for a better board for our nonprofit. That each one has and will bring a different aspect to Ella’s Halo and will help us be successful. We approved our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, we set goals for the next year, and came up with so many ideas that will eventually help so many people.

To top it off, the day after our meeting, Ryan went to the Minnesota Secretary of State’s Office and filed our Articles of Incorporation. So as of October 16, 2009, Ella’s Halo is a corporation. And with big hearts we are going to start doing some big helping.

How exciting that you are incorporated. I can't wait to help out in any way I can.
