So I've been working long days.  Trying to expand the Photography business (we have our first remote Photographer, in Hawaii even!), trying to bring back Bubba's Bears, Texas style.  (go big or go home! That was Alex's motto).

It's such rewarding work!  I have a few heart moms who are willing already to bring bears to their local hospitals and so many friends who have once again jumped on the bandwagon without hesitation to help our cause.  Including one wonderful lady who has offered to re-create Bubba's Bears in Canada!  Canada has always been an issue for us due to the cost of shipping bears across the border, problem solved now!

I never cease to be amazed at the generosity of people.  It seems that people in this world really DO want to help others, they just don't know where to start.

This is so healing for me and I love it even though it's an amazing mountain of work.  Balancing the bears/RAOK as well as the Photography business is a juggling act, but I know that as the Photography business grows it will allow us so much more funding for the other stuff!  We are a big wierd, most business owners think of fancy cars and financial comfort, us? We think of all of the money we can give away! lol

We never were normal I guess!

I found your add on craigslist and couldn't find your contact info on your website or facebook so here I am. I have a 6 month old adorable baby girl. I love photography but don't have a nice camera so would love it if you could take some shots of her. We live all the way in San Marcos but we could meet you in Austin on a nice day at the botanical garden or somewhere. She is a very sweet, little, tough baby who has already been through so much already. She was born with intestinal blockage because of her Cystic Fibrosis. She was in the NICU at Dell Childrens in austin the first 110 days after she was born.. We weren't able to get newborn shots done but she's still small so I would like to have some taken soon. She is our little miracle and has been such a blessing in our lives already.

Oh and I would like to help pass out bears too! That's such a wonderful idea. Also I would love to have a short photo shoot of Kate with my husband and I this spring. I will referr you to some friends who have babies and I'm sure would love nice pictures. I think it's great that you are doing such great things. Hope to hear from you soon. God Bless!
