Fozzy’s best “pie face” … :)
"Where I’m From" by Shelby Lee - the legacy of my loved and no-longer-orphaned daughter
I am from washbins
from soap bars and old clothes
I am from the gate up front
it looked like jail)
I am from green trees
the Ginco Tree
whose bright green leafs
help with memory
I’m from celebrations and dark skin
from Sara and Mei Li
I’m from the rising early
and the come here
From use your brain and don’t yell
I’m from He saved us
with his only Son
and youth group every week
I’m from China and America
Old photos and memories
from the plane rides my parents took
the nights of no sleep at the hospital
In the back room is a bag
filled good and bad memories
I am from once lost person that has nothing
to someone who has everything and more.
Fozzy’s favorite time of day? Rescuing the kids from the school building who ate them earlier in the day.
Egg-face-boy says to big sister Shelby “YOU get to bathe me!”
It’s good to be a carnivore!!
Guess who likes spaghetti?!
Take a look at the 2010 collection as well as its designers.
Read about what brought Shelby Lee to Doernbecher and learn about the Nike shoe she designed for the Doernbecher Freestyle fundraising program.
Shelby’s limited edition Nike Doernbecher Free Run 2 will launch 8/17. Featuring bright blue colors on the upper and inspirational words on the midsole.
The Doernbecher train has been moving very quickly to say the least. Maybe the year 2014 has plenty in stock for us for some more DBs? Anyway, the next DB to be released has finally been announced. Nike is choosing to stick with the Nike Free Run 2 designed by Shelby Lee. Personally, I love every DB that is released because of the unique design and the nature of the creation. This time around, Shelby Lee gets her turn to design a signature collection. “Shelby Lee first participated in the Doernbecher Freestyle program in 2010 while recovering from a series of five heart surgeries. Her recovery began in 2008, after her adoptive family brought her to Oregon from a Chinese orphanage to repair her damaged heart. Shelby’s inspiration for her Nike Free Run 2 came from her amazing journey. The bright blue colors on the upper remind her of the sky, while inspirational words like “Love,” “Peace” and “Faith” line the midsole. The hearts on the tongue […]
No, a plan for complex open heart surgery on a 2-yr-old does not normally result in a 2-day hospital stay. But that’s just how we roll!
Yesterday afternoon I brought JJ and Tanya home following Wednesday’s heart cath, which was a great success technically (and itself very complex!). Without the hoped-for bump in O2 sats, though, the doctors are mulling over the options. They were able to do it with an extra mind as Doernbecher was hosting a heart surgeon from Columbia University yesterday and they picked his brain for ideas.
Ping is SO happy to have her brother home.
