As you all know, friends of ours (John and Carla Bennett) held a fund-raiser for Lila yesterday. They own a martial arts studio in Reno and had a "break-a-thon", where all of their members participated by breaking boards using the force of their bodies. Lila even had the opportunity to break a board!

Once again, the turn out was overwhelming, bringing out many emotions and much thankfulness. Unfortunately, Lila was under the weather but pulled through and wanted to stay the entire time. She enjoyed the positive energy in the room, all of the laughter and support, and the friendliness of all of the families around her. John and Carla have truly put together an amazing community there at the studio, who all seem to be of the same mindset embracing our little girl with the love and kindness, as if the have all known her forever.

Lastly, Matt had gotten photos of two little girls from church that participated and I wanted to share their photos as well....
