Thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive!

Dear Mattie Blog Readers,

It means a great deal to us that you take the time to write to us and to share your thoughts, feelings, and reflections on Mattie's battle and death. Your messages are very meaningful to us and help support us through very challenging times. To you we are forever grateful. As my readers know, I promised to write the blog for a year after Mattie's death, which would mean that I could technically stop writing on September 9, 2010. However, at the moment, I feel like our journey with grief still needs to be processed and fortunately I have a willing support network still committed to reading. Therefore, the blog continues on. If I should find the need to stop writing, I assure you I will give you advanced notice. In the mean time, thank you for reading, thank you for having the courage to share this journey with us, and most importantly thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive.

As Mattie would say, Ooga Booga (meaning, I LOVE YOU)! Vicki and Peter

Tonight's picture was taken in May of 2009. Mattie's friends brought him a kiddie pool and pool toys for his hospital room! Mattie's room was as small as a postage stamp but I got used to living in a closet sized room along with all the toys that filled the room on a daily basis. Frankly anything that engaged Mattie and made him feel happier were welcomed!

I am still trying to process through all the Mattie Miracle Walk photos. I will start posting them soon. In the mean time, I am sharing with you an article that was posted in the Alexandria News as well as a press release that was circulated on-line thanks to IBC, our Mattie Miracle Level sponsor.
