I could not wait to tell everyone this awesome thing that happened yesterday. After seeing beautiful little Cynthia for the first time at the hospital two days ago, I put in a call to my nephew in LA. He is currently taking acting classes and trying to get into tv, print, or movies. Knowing that Matt has had the opportunity to meet a lot of the sweet girls and boys on Disney Channel, I wanted to see if there was any way he could get an autograph for Cynthia from someone he knows. I would never want to impose, but I felt there was such an urgency with this child and I knew it would lift her spirits. I called my sister and she relayed the message to Matt. He was brought to tears and immediately made a few calls. I wasn't sure what he would come up with, but anything would be a nice gesture. Well, let's just say Matt came through big time! Yesterday afternoon while lying in her hospital bed, Cynthia got a call from Aly and AJ. For those of you who do not have cable or children between the ages of 5 and 16, you may not know who they are. They are singers, songwriters, musicians, and actresses that are constantly seen on the Disney Channel. They not only called Cynthia, they got out their guitars and sang a song for her. And here is the best part, they prayed with her over the phone. These are Christian girls! I think I am going to go buy their Christmas Album right now. I went to see Cynthia last night at the hospital and to say that she had a huge smile on her face about her call would be a big understatement. Her 19 yr.old sister was there to stay the night with her, and said that Cynthia is usually so shy and never talks to strangers, but she was talking her heart out to Aly and AJ. How cool is that? I didn't even know this little girl 3 days ago and now she is in my prayers and thoughts constantly. Our church family is bringing them meals, visiting daily, and praying like crazy. Cynthia has captured our hearts. Cynthia also has a twin sister, a 19 yr. old sister, a 9 yr. old sibling and a 7 yr. old sibling (not sure if boys or girls). Thanks to each and everyone of you who have prayed and continue to pray. Skip, my hubby, said that I should never go to Africa if I get this attached to one sick child. I would probably never leave. Lastly, I want to just praise God for all He is doing in this family and all those involved in helping her.
