Charlie's feet prints

Hi all – as most of you had heard on the podcast, Vanessa and her husband John were delighted to be expecting a baby boy. Unfortunately this week, she went into pre-term labor, delivered him very early and he did not survive. Some of you have reached out and all your positivity is very appreciated. If you have asked about a way in which you might help, a memorial fund has been established in Charlie’s memory and Vanessa is able to see all the donations and notes as they come in. The fund is with the wonderful organization A Place Called Home and every gift is going to go towards giving under-priveledged children in LA happier childhoods and exposure to the arts.

    This is heartbeaking news. Vanessa, I only know you from podcasts, yet I can tell that you have a radiant, playful spirit. When your “for keeps” baby arrives, he or she will be very lucky to have you as a mother. I will definitely make a donation in Charlie’s name.

    Wow! Vanessa, bless you and your family. You are in my prayers.
