I believe my son Sammy is the most deserving of an AMAZING party! When Sammy was born April 24, 2009, after a pretty stress free pregnancy, the cord was wrapped around his neck three times. After the midwife and nurses took care of my little blue bundle, they realized that his skin had a strange purplish hue and his feet and arms were not the same size. Three hours after he was born, he was sent to the local Children’s Hospital for testing, while I had to stay behind until my iron counts went up. We were able to leave the NICU after the first night, but we stayed in the hospital for almost a week while they ran a series of tests on my precious baby, and while he stayed under the bili lights to lower his counts. He had blood work, several X-rays, and ultrasounds done to determine the severity of his limb abnormalities (one hand and forearm is smaller than the other, his left foot is much thicker and the toes much bigger than the right, he has several lumps of fatty tissue on his back and stomach, and one butt cheek is bigger than the other – definitely the cutest feature!) and the discoloration of his skin which covers a majority of his torso and most of his left leg. When we left the hospital, we had some idea as to what he could have. He was initially diagnosed with KTW Syndrome (I believe a few thousand people have this syndrome), then CMTC (about 250 people have this diagnosis). After a month, we came back for an MRI of his brain, which thankfully was normal. Over the past three years, my little man has endured numerous doctor’s visits, MRI’s, X-rays of his entire body, Ultrasounds, and many other tests. We have traveled to see specialists in Cincinnati, and all of his lab work and paperwork was sent to Boston Children’s hospital for review. As of August 2011, Samuel is officially diagnosed with CLOVES (for more information, visit clovessyndrome.org) which 90 people in the world have been diagnosed with. While he is a healthy, happy 3 year old, he recently had the 2nd toe of his left foot amputated due to its size and to help decrease the width of his foot. We will need to go in for further testing soon to see how the vascular anomaly on his chest is affecting his internal organs, blood flow, and especially his heart. For one reason or another, we have not had the opportunity to throw Sammy the big wonderful birthday party we feel he deserves! We want Sammy to have a big blow out for his 4th birthday – a celebration of him and the wonderful life and health he has! We are so lucky to have him in our family, thankful that he is healthy, and we won’t to show our love to him! We love you Samuel Connor!!!

I would like to win this awesome giveaway for my baby girl Mira’s 1st Birthday coming up in August. On August 11, 2010 I had a stillborn at 37 weeks to a baby girl named Maddyn Shaye. Losing a child is a mothers worst nightmare, a pain that no one should never have to endure. I will forever remember my sweet Maddyn & the joy she brought to me in the little time I had with her. She’s brought me joy that I can’t even describe & friendships from women across the country that I’ve met through “Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope”-an online support group. I’m forever thankful for my angel. Just 4 months after, I got pregnant again with what is now my little MIRAcle baby, Mira Shaye, born on August 10,2011- – Just one day short of what would have been Maddyn’s 1st birthday. Throughout my whole pregnancy & before I even found out I was having another girl, I referred to Mira as my “rainbow baby”. A rainbow baby is a baby that is born after any kind of pregnancy or infant loss. After having gone through the storm of losing a child, a new life brings with it a rainbow… So that is why I want to throw Mira a “rainbow” themed 1st birthday party.

My story isn’t sad, or heart wrenching. My story is uplifiting and I want to celebrate all of the amazing things that have happened for my sweet Bella. We adopted Bella from Romania, after long bouts of in-vitro and egg donors, we needed to explore the idea of adoption. The orphanages over there are DEPLORABLE. We went through MONTHS and MONTHS of red tape in order to adopt her, and finally did. We got back stateside, and got a call from the adoption agency, stating that they had found Bella’s brother, Anthony, in another orphanage in Romania and knew we were interested in adopting him. We had only been home a few weeks, so we told the agency to give us a while to adjust to having Bella, and allow us to mull it over. After two weeks, we decided the best thing to do would be to adopt Anthony, as well. We called the agency and told them we were interested and were HEART BROKEN to find out that he had been adopted. We reveled in having our own child, FINALLY, and though we were hurt by not having her sibling there to raise with her, we still had our sweet Bella.
Fast forward 6 months. I get a phone call that I am floored by. The family that adopted Anthony is ELEVEN MILES FROM MY HOME. That’s where they LIVE. A true MIRACLE. I am sobbing happy tears as I tell my husband, and over the last year and a half, we have been able to raise Bella with her brother, Anthony and have them know eachother. We are SO blessed and SO happy to know that she has a true part of her that she can hang on to for the rest of her life.
My sweet Bella is deserving of an amazing, over the top, birthday party and I hope that I am able to give this to her by winning your package.

I would Love to be able to have a chance to win this give away from my Sister Sheila she is a single Mom of two wonderful kids and she just currently lost her job. I just recently celebrated my daughters 4th birthday, and my Sister, her daughter and I with a few other people were sitting at a table. And her daughter said to her softly “Momma can my birthday be like this” She replied back “I don’t know, because I don’t have a lot of money” her daughter hugs her and says “it’s OK” as my Sister has tears in her eyes. It truly made me sad. later that day I told my husband, I wanted to throw Alyssa (my sister’s daughter) a party and explained what had happen. But as I start to think. I myself have two other kids who’s birthdays are coming up soon My daughter Madison who is turning 1 July 9th and my son J.J is turning 3 sept 4th. And I don’t have a lot of my money myself so I may not be able to give her the party she deserves. But when I seen this I just had to try it out. My niece Alyssa is Going to be 5 at the end of September and she is just the sweetest little girl who cares about others and what she can do for them before herself. She deserve to have a day that is just all about her, to make her feel special like a princess :) So please I would love to help my sister out be able to let her give her daughter a great Birthday!

I would love to throw a homecoming party for my husband! He is currently deployed overseas and has been gone all year. March 30th of this year I gave birth to our daughter. She is our first born and my husband was not able to come home for the birth. Needless to say, he has not met his daughter yet and won’t until she is nearly 7 months old. He has always wanted to be a father and was so patient waiting for me to be ready, and he truly sacrificed the most important day of our lives, and some of the sweetest moments of our daughters life, to serve our country and protect our freedoms.
I want to give him a homecoming party that he will never forget! He works so hard I think he truly deserves a celebration.
Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful giveaway. It will really allow someone who otherwise couldn’t to have a special day.

I would love to win this party for my little 4 year old brother that has been battling cancer (Leukemia) for 1 year. He would love to have a party…he is a strong little boy. If I can put a smile on his face for a couple hours that would make my day.My brother Dominick fights everyday to beat CANCERS BUTT!! My mother is a single mother and can not afford to throw him a lavish party. She had to quit her full time job to take care of my brother. This party would mean so much to us. Thanks again for the wonderful opportunity!!!!

On May 15, 2009 after just 1 month of trying, we found out we were pregnant. We were over joyed and so excited to see what this bundle of joy would be like. On June 9th, 2009 just 3 short weeks later I felt like our life was turned upside down. My husband was in hotel management and had been expecting to get a raise….instead he was terminated with just 1 month of severance pay. He tried relentlessly to find a job…unfortunately it took over 16months for him to find one. During that time we found out that we were pregnant with a little girl, her name is Avonlea Marie. She joined our little family on January 14, 2010 and has forever changed my life. Since then we have been trying to dig out financially. We are now over $20,000 in debt from just paying to keep our bills paid and groceries in the refrigerator. We have been gradually working on paying down bills and things, my hubby finally found a position as a middle school teacher after he did a “Career Switcher” program. Unfortunately we have no extra $$$ (We are still $300 in the hole every month) so we don’t have the extra to splurge on things we would like.
This party pack would be amazing and a way that I feel like I could do something special for my daughter, the way she deserves. Thanks for such an amazing giveaway!!!

Wow, skimming through some of those amazing stories; judges you have a tough decision to make! My name is Lorna and i am 21 years young, I would like to nominate my sister Ellen Marie Massey for winning your grand prize party. She is 14 turning 15 in September, she is my half sister and now my responsibility.
We share the same mother who is very ill mentally and physically. Her father is in the same boat add on top of that a drug addict. About 3 years ago they were all living together in North Carolina in a very unstable and abusive situation/environment. Food, health, and safety was nonexistent. At 11 years old, Ellen to get away from her abusive parents would run to friends houses where they would influence her to party, drink and do drugs. This was not a bright future for her and a very dark past.
Our mother decided to leave Ellen’s father to move in with a boyfriend. This relationship was not much better than the last and it ended up leaving Ellen homeless at 12 years old. The boyfriend did not like Ellen and made my mom discard her. Instead of actually kicking her to the curb my mom dropped Ellen off at a mental hospital and made her live there for two weeks until I could get time off from work and school to drive from Florida where I live to get her.
I was 19 years old taking on raising a troubled teenager, what was I thinking I am a teenager myself? She is my sister and I would do anything for her, I had to try. Within a month of Ellen in my care my mom decided to call law enforcement and tell them I have kidnapped her. So I can tell you it has been quite an adventure learning how law enforcement and the legal system work. It was worth it because as of December 1, 2011 I am now her legal guardian.
We both have been on an amazing journey together and it can only go up from here. She has had so much of her childhood taken away from her, I would love to be able to throw her a party to celebrate the fun and innocence that she deserves for her 15th birthday. Thank you for reading this and for the opportunity of a very special day!

I’m a mom of two special needs children…both on different levels of the Autism spectrum.Plus the mother of 2 year old twins.My oldest daughter was diagnosed with PDD/NOS and as you can imagine has had to sacrifice so much because of her disability and her brothers severe Autism dignosis.She misses out on alot of things other girls her age are doing and it honestly breaks my heart.She wants to take dance lessons…but the girls make fun of her because she is on a 7/8 year old grade level.And how do you explain to a 13 year old that we can’t attend a birthday party or family gathering because her brother will have a complete melt down because he is overwhelmed in crowds and mom doesn’t have any help because family just doesn’t want to deal with his disability?Her birthday is in August and i’ve been planning a party for her because she deserves to be a princess even if it’s for one day!She works so hard in school…makes honor roll…she deserves a break from our hectic life to have an awesome party!She is the sweetest,caring,most loving young girl and would absolutely love this!Thanks so much for the chance!

**FINALIST #1** VOTE IN COMMENT SECTION for #ONE if you want her to WIN- Jessica moore on June 29, 2012 at 11:43 am said:

Our daughter will be a year old in October.

I’ve waited my whole life to be a mom, and early one morning in October 2011, I watched my miracle baby enter this world via emergency c-section. She was beautiful and healthy, and perfect in every way. My husband and I were instantly wrecked in love with her.

Four days later, we were ready to leave the hospital with our 8 lb little bundle. But before we could go, we had to first say goodbye to her birth mom. Selah is adopted… And the happiest and hardest moments of my life converged as I lifted this sweet baby to be kissed one last time by the woman who gave her life. Seconds later, we stood as a new family of three while we watched a yellow cab drive away with the most amazing & selfless woman inside, wiping away thousands of tears.

I love being a mommy to this little miracle. And my husband is the greatest father I’ve ever known. But financially, adopting has not been easy for us. We let go of any savings we had, and took on a very large personal loan to pay for the cost of the adoption when we were chosen to be the parents of this precious child. We have been denied for financial assistance from the government, and seven adoption grants that we have plead our case to. We long for the day to not be burdened by the looming cloud of financial hardship… But we will not allow it to take away from the joy that comes from raising this little girl. She is every bit of our happiness, and proof that the bond between a parent and child is not dependent upon a bloodline. We are so thankful to have her as our daughter.

With her first birthday coming up, this would be a HUGE blessing for our family. Winning this give-away would allow us to give our daughter the best first birthday, and official “welcome to the family” celebration that we have not been able to give her yet.

    Due to a financial crisis, and after losing our apartment, my husband and I had to move in with his parents last September when I was 6 months pregnant with our first baby. It was very difficult for us but his parents made it as easy as possible. They gave me tons of support through the rest of my pregnancy. On December 16, 2012, I delivered a beautiful baby girl we named Amelia. Amelia and her Nana bonded quickly. Every time Amelia saw her she would smile. My mother in law had been very ill for the last few years and I was so happy Amelia could bring a little sunshine into her life. Tuesday night, my mother in law was feeling even worse, so we took her to the hospital. Before we left, Amelia gave her Nana one last kiss. She was very upset because she knew something was wrong. But her Nana managed to give her a smile and tell her everything was going to be all right. That was the last time Amelia got to see her. She passed away late last night. My heart is breaking for my husband and our family, but even more so because our baby girl will never know her Nana. I had started trying to plan Amelia’s first birthday party and my mother in law was so excited about it. Even though it’s not until December, we both marveled at how time is flying by and it will be here before we know it.
    My husband is the sole provider for our family. He works so incredibly hard to provide for us yet we are still struggling. Being that Amelia is our first baby, we both want her first birthday to be very special. And now that her Nana is no longer with us, it will be bittersweet since she loved Amelia so very much and was so involved and excited about the plans. If we were to win this amazing prize, not only would it help us out tremendously financially, I know her Nana would be so full of joy to know her precious granddaughter would have a beautiful, spectacular party, a party that she so greatly wanted for her little bunny.

    I recently found out I am pregnant, and am THRILLED! I am working and going to school – and have always dreamed my first baby shower would be big and beautiful. Though I am not in a position to make that happen, nor are my friends, I would still love a chance to make that happen. What a great giveaway and what a burden of stress it would eliminate to have some of the things taken care in advance!

    I would love to win this so I could throw a baby shower for my friends Joy and Stephen. Joy and Stephen were pregnant with a baby that they knew would be born with lots of health issues. Joy carried their daugther to full term and delivered her. Maggie Mabee Colwell was born with lots of health issues and was on life support for the 26 days of her life. They were not able to hold their daughter until after her death. Joy and Stephen tried to get pregnant again and just gave birth to a healthy daughter June Scarlet Colwell. We are all wanting to throw a shower for their daughter June now that she is here so everyone can celebrate with the parents on this huge blessing. I think they deserve this more than anyone, and if you would like to read their story from their own words and see pictures of beautiful Maggie go here please. http://mabeecolwell.weebly.com/

    I am not entering this contest for myself, but for my sister- {& brother-} in-law {Kayla & Trevor}.
    They have been trying for some time now to have a child of their own. After a few miscarriages she was finally able to carry her own child in 2011. We were all so overjoyed when she moved past the really desperate possibility of miscarriage. Around September 2011 some problems started arising with the pregnancy and after being hospitalized on Oahu, they had to send Kayla to the mainland so she could receive the proper medical care. Trevor could not come with her right away and she needed to leave with 24 hours notice. The original plan was to send her to San Diego with no friends or family, but we were able to convince the doctors to send her to Riley Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis so we would be close to her. Once the doctors determined the baby was in stable condition, she was released and lived with us.
    However, in November she started having more complications, so Trevor rushed her to the hospital. By this point, we knew baby Landon had 3 very rare conditions all competing with each other. The doctors had told the family to expect the worst. At the hospital, they had an ultrasound to find out that baby Landon’s heart had stopped. The doctors wouldn’t perform a C-Section so Kayla was induced and spent days in labor with Landon. Very late on November 15 she gave birth to a still-born little boy; and a few days later we attended his funeral. Since then Kayla has had another miscarriage. The doctors can’t find anything wrong, but her body just can’t seem to grow a child right now.
    Trevor & Kayla have been in the adoption process and it should be any time now that they get to hold a baby in their arms & love him/her as their own.
    Since I was the one planning baby Landon’s baby shower, I would really love to be able to give them a beautiful shower for their new blessing. No one should ever have to go through the pain & sadness they have {let alone in their early 20s}, but they are prepared to be parents again and I want them to be able to have a celebration like no other!

    My daughter is deserving of a fantastic birthday party. Last year she had a wonderful birthday and two weeks later she was in the hospital fighting for her life. At 4 years old she was diagnosed with rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis, which was rapid onset of kidney failure. She went from full function on December 31 to 17% on January 5. She underwent blood transfusions, high doses of steroid therapy as well as chemo therapy which was taxing for both of us as well as our extended family. She went through so much at such a young age and maintained a relatively positive outlook in part because we were in an awesome children’s hospital and because she didn’t understand the gravity of the situation. I did however and cried and prayed for weeks on end. I’m glad to report that her recovery has been nothing short of miraculous. The nephrology team thought that she’d need a kidney transplant by the onset of puberty and threw around terms like “quality of life” and “keeping her comfortable” Now she’s a happy and thriving 4.5 year old and mentions her birthday often (like all 4 year olds). To keep her spirits up in the hospital we looked at photos from her birthday party that was just a few days earlier. I’m a single mom with little emotional or financial support from her father. I’d love to have the opportunity to throw her an amazing party since several of my prayers focused on getting her to her next birthday.

    I would love to win this for my sister and my niece Yadira. My sister is always so kind enough to host everyone’s parties and family get togethers at her house. She does the cooking and the cleaning every time. She doesn’t complain ever. I would love to be able to surprise her with this and throw my nieces 8th bday party for her, so that she can relax and my niece will get an amazing party this year!

    thank you!

    Kara,
    The person most deserving of a special birthday celebration is my Grandma Milly! This August she will be 104 years young!! She doesn’t ask for much from us, but decided she wanted a birthday party this year for all her friends to celebrate with her…after all, how many people can say they are 104 :) ??!! She is the last surviving sibling of 6, lived through both WW in Hungary, came to the States to make a better life for my mom, and never left! My mom passed away, so now my husband and I are truly blessed to have her living in our home, and every day she reminds me and shows me through her words and actions what is means to be thankful. She never complains, even though her vision and hearing are all but gone, and her old bones ache.
    I would love to give her a beautiful FUN party to celebrate her LIFE WELL LIVED. :)

    I would be thrill to win this giveaway! I have never won anything this amazing. I think I along with my almost one year old daughter would definitely deserve it to the fullest. I am a single parent of two beautiful girls; a 5 yr old & an 11 month old. I am currently attending school full time while working a full time job.I am working towards obtaining my ADN and later transitioning to BSN. With my oldest I always out did her birthdays. Over the top! Its been tough but so worth it being able to work to give both my kids everything they deserve and more. I am moving on the first of July and with that comes with alot of spending leaving me with a small budget for her birthday. My plan was to have a pool party for her and convert the backyard into an under the sea paradise, with lots of sweets, food and fruit for this extremely hot Texas weather, a waterslide,which she loves! and some games. the theme would be The Little Mermaid -Under the Sea, since her name is Ariella meaning Ariel. I love both of my children and have sacrifies alot to make sure both my girls are taken care of. I would totally be increadibly thankful if I won this giveaway. Giving my beautiful babygirl an awesome 1st birthday party. :)
