Several members of Team Harper met at the Mpls Children’s Ronald McDonald House today to volunteer for Cooks for Kids. This third floor haven was a frequent dining spot and quiet respite for Eric and I during last spring’s stay. Meals are served 7 days/week with volunteers ranging from families, corporations, or church groups.
Returning to the hospital was a bit anxiety-inducing at first. It was a great experience and a perfect way to mark the day of Harper’s diagnosis. We saw ourselves in the heavy shoulders and vacant faces of several sets of parents.
Thank you to all of our helpers – Grandpa Whitey, Grandma Dixie, Grandma Kaki, Grandma Karen, Grandpa David (for watching the kids!), Auntie Jane, John, Sam, and Darla (your chicken rocked!!!).
