This year, Anna's Banana Pants team had 50 people walking!! How incredible is that?! God has blessed us with such a great family and so many wonderful and caring and supportive friends. I am overwhelmed just looking at the group picture of our team.
$2,500!! Seriously folks, this is amazing, and truly the work of God. I merely sent out a few emails to family and friends and they willingly and generously opened their hearts and wallets and gave.
But, I think what had me floating the highest, was watching Miss Anna walking at her own Buddy Walk for the first time! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I was to see this. I was choking back tears for a good part of it. God does answer prayers because I have been praying so hard that Anna would be able to walk at her Buddy Walk this year...and watch her go!!
It may be a technicality that she is using a push toy...but that doesn't matter to us...She Did It!!!
Thank you so much for everyone who came out to walk with us, who donated to the Buddy Walk, who prayed for good weather and wished us well. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel.
Here are a few (ha!) more pictures from the day.
