Walking For Dreams 2018

April 24, 2018

If you know our family, you know we have a deep love for the Jackson Center for Conductive Education.  In fact, I just wrote about it in my last post!  I shared how much of an impact it has had on me, not to mention the therapy is actually for Elena! 

I’m not one to repeat myself so you can read my love letter’s to this special place HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE.  But, man, the Jackson Center fulfills so many needs for so many kids and their families, ours included.

Elena has been a student at the JC since she was two years old.  We could never express how much what it has given to her or to us, but we LOVE being able to give back.  We are so fortunate in that we are constantly surrounded by a community who supports us, helps us, prays for us and loves us in every way possible.  You all are so generous in giving not just monetarily, but in your hearts for us.  We are incredibly grateful for this, never taking it for granted, and are always amazed by you. 

We give back to the JC any chance we get, both through their fundraisers and through Elena’s monthly tuition.  We know first hand that our donations and tuition go directly into helping Elena and her buddies receive the therapy, motivation and community that the JC provides. They are a small, family-centered organization but they give BIG, with their whole hearts and love, love, love our kiddos.  I can’t say enough about these people and this place.

This is Elena. Our Light. You can see all the goodness and joy that shines from those deep blue eyes. She loves sneezes, yawns, industrial toilet flushes, automatic paper towel dispensers and The Star Spangled Banner. Music is her everything, specifically Moana, Frozen (really all Disney), Queen & Taylor Swift. Nothing makes her squeal quite like swimming, fast boat rides and her two brothers in trouble. In addition to her megawatt smile, Elena reminds us to cherish the smallest of victories, to live in the present, and to daily dwell in a posture of gratitude for every breath and every blessing.  

More About Our Story

I’m Emmalee, an ordinary gal born and raised in the Heartland. Wife to Chad, and Mom to Elena, Calvin & Turner, I spend most my days ridin’ dirty (literally so much trash) in my minivan carting kids to and fro. When I’m not being a Momager, I excel at self-care, cooking gourmet meals my kids won’t eat and deep-diving all the feelings. Most days, my attitude is gratitude, just taking life one step at a time.
