From a previous guest: Thank you so much to the ATO Zeta Kappa guys and gals for this wonderful event! We appreciate all that you have done and are still doing for us!
I had my little boy at 26 weeks gestation. He weighed only two and a half pounds and looked nothing like any baby I had ever seen. My whole world stopped as I stared into the small plastic box he lay in, monitors everywhere, feeling completely alone in my terror. I didn't know how I was going to leave his side for the night or make the long drives back and forth to visit.
I was told about the Ronald McDonald House by a social worker at the hospital and checked in the house next day. As I was shown around the house and took special notice of a wall they dedicate to photos of families and children that stayed there previously. Their babies looked just like mine, and next to it were pictures of them growing and thriving. For me it was hope that I didn't know existed!
Day after day before leaving to the hospital I was greeted by the people who worked at the house, each one I am convinced put there by God to serve a purpose. When I came back at night there were meals cooked by volunteers from the community ready to give without any expectation of return. One of the best things about staying at the house was I knew I wasn't alone. I talked to, laughed with, cried for and shared with so many of the mothers that I met in my almost 3 month stay at the Ronald McDonald House. My family was also welcomed to the house with open arms. My parents, in-laws, sister, friends and children all visited the house regularly. It is hard to put into words what everyone at that house did for me.
They took all of my day to day worries away and let me focus on my sick baby. I won't ever look at those plastic boxes in the front of a McDonald's cash register or the tabs on the top of cans the same again. For now, this is my small way to give back for all they have given me.
