Your generosity has been absolutely amazing. Thank you all so much for the outpouring of support. We have an airbnb booked for the week of Spring break and now have enough to take my brother and his family also, making it our first real full family vacation ever. We still plan on donating some to a charity of Lincoln's choice since I think it's important to teach him that helping those in need is a very important quality to have. Again thank you all so much, its been very humbling to see the community come together to help us.
