This blog also discusses our other outreach programs: SOCKIES FOR SICKIES, which sends sock monkeys to children who are chronically ill due to their neuro. disorder. These monkeys are for these children to keep. ANGEL MONKEYS, are also sent to families that have angels in Heaven, along with a framed poem.

Molly and Karly Rose in North Carolina with Updates (5/31)

After surviving a tornado in Texas, Molly traveled to North Carolina to visit the Vaughns. Karly Rose, a cute 2 and 1/2 year old with Microcephaly and Lissencephaly was sleeping when Molly arrived. Yet the rest of the Vaughn clan greeted Molly and Maxx: Mr. Chad (Karly's Dad), Ms. Miranda (mom), Jai'mie (big sister) and Keegan (big brother) all welcomed the monkeys with open arms.

When Karly did wake up she was sooo excited to meet Molly (and Maxx). They played all morning and then got ready for Easter picture time with Mamaw and Papaw, who came all the way from Kentucky to visit. Everyone went to the park for pictures and Molly helped Karly look at the camera by dancing an Easter jig. They all went home and to bed early: The Easter Bunny was hoping down the bunny trail!

The next day was indeed EASTER! The Vaughn family and Molly awoke to see that the Easter Bunny had already been there and had left surprises for the kids. Everyone played with their new toys, danced, had scrambled eggs for breakfast, and died Easter eggs. After getting ready, Molly and her new friends went to a family dinner. Molly was able to meet more of Karly Rose's BIG family! They also had an Easter egg hunt and Karly and Molly LOVED looking for the eggs. When everyone got home from a busy day, we all went to sleep except for Karly and Ms. Miranda. Karly has irregular sleep patterns and can stay up anywhere from 24 -48 without being tired.

The next day Molly played with Keegan and Jai'mie, since Karly slept the day away. Yet, Molly had a blast with Karly's siblings.

The following day was an early morning. Karly and Molly had breakfast, played My Little Ponies and danced. Later that day, Karly's mom and dad worked in the garden, while Karly and Molly played on the slide and had a snack at the picnic table. Tired out from the fresh air, everyone went to bed early.

On the last day at the Vaughn's home, Molly and Karly had breakfast and then went shopping. Molly and Karly picked out something nice for the next Molly recipient, Erin Kahn. They picked a puppy dog bubble blower for Erin. The next errand was a sad one, as it was time for hugs and goodbyes, as Karly covered up Molly and Maxx and sent them on their way to Massachusetts to spend time with the Kahn family.
