Little Gretchen and Ella Hargis were born at just 23 weeks and 5 days on February 2, 2011. Gretchen Marie weighed 1 lb. 6 oz. and Ella Brie weighed 1 lb. 3 oz.. They have been through many up and downs in the past 6 weeks and these 2 tiny miracles have put up the biggest fight.

At their side, every step of the way, have been their faithful and dedicated parents, Scott and Katie. They have been living in the Ronald McDonald house since Feb 4th. While this has been an answer to prayer and tremendous blessing to them, they have at least 2 more months of being over an hour from home and needing to be near the twins. At the Ronald McDonald House, they must share a bathroom, kitchen, and living area. Also, there is no television, they have to eat out every meal, and a true lack of privacy. Scott also worries about the safety of Katie, since he will return to work on Tuesday and she will be alone several days a week.

We have looked into getting them an efficiency extended-stay hotel room. This would allow them to have their own living space, a full kitchen, their own bathroom, and privacy. This will allow them to have a "home" for the next few months, cook their own meals, and have cable TV. The cost is around $40/day...which is around $2500 for 2 months. Obviously, this is like another mortgage payment for them to take on and is impossible.

We feel this is a opportunity for us to bestow a huge blessing on them. If we could raise the $2500, we could give them a home for the next 2 months while they care for their tiny miracles!
