Hello Everyone,

It's me, Paige. I thought I would write a comment on the blog to thank everyone for all the cards. My entire family is very grateful to have people who care about us. Special thanks to those who made bookmarks, stamps, necklaces, stickers, blank cards for me to use, and pins. I'm so very amazed that I've received cards not only from the United States, but also from many different countries. So far I have cards from Canada, England, Scotland, Sweden, Finland, The Netherlands, and Italy. Thank you again for all of the time and hard work that you all have put into your wonderful cards.

Bless you all,

Paige Welch and family.

If you would still like to mail Paige a card or would like to send her a welcome home card as she should be home around the 17th, just email me for my address and I'll get your card right to her!
