We were recently in Birmingham, at Children's Hospital and were able to stay at the newly remodeled Ronald McDonald House. It was such a blessing for us. The staff is very nice, they care about the families that stay in the House. Your stay can be from one night to several months. We stayed one night, but we learned so much. There are fun things to do, the library was Hannahs favorite place to be, I think that if I had allowed her, she would have slept on the floor in the library all night, we made several trips down to get more books. There was also an outdoor play area, and it had a long covered porch, with rocking chairs. We enjoyed play time for several hours sitting on the porch. There were board games, televisions, computers, and several play areas to keep little ones busy. It was for parents and kids, and everyone meet and talked at leasure.
There are several ways to suport the House, including but not limited to collecting pop tabs from cans, monetary donations, books and toys, food, as well as a wish list for needs for the home. They take new and slightly used items, as long as they are in good condition. If you are in the area, stop by and check them out.
Much Love and Prayer's,
Lori and crew
