A Message From Brielle McWeeney

Hi! This is Brielle, she is the light of our lives! In 2016 I was delighted to find out that I was expecting my fourth baby. Since I already have three boys, I didn’t want to know the gender (because my heart longed so much for a little girl) so at the 20 week ultrasound we asked the ultrasound tech not to tell us the gender. She did tell us though that everything looked perfect and there is no evidence of Down Syndrome and no evidence of a heart defect. Fast forward to December 29th, 2016 and I was induced at 7am. Brielle was born at 2pm weighing 10lbs 7 Oz. Rob cut her cord and announced that I had my first little girl! She was purple/blue at birth and they whisked her away to be put on oxygen. A little later the neonatologist told me that my daughter has Down Syndrome. She was transported by ambulance to the NICU at a larger hospital where we found out that she has a heart defect. At around 2 weeks in the NICU we placed her on the waiting list for “The Little Lighthouse” since we were told that the wait list was about three years long. The LLH is a world renowned preschool for children with special needs. They receive no government funding. All operating costs are met by personal and corporate donations. Tuition at this wonderful school is free. If we had to pay tuition, it would amount to over $32 000 per year. The school provides speech, occupational and physical therapy for all the students but the most important facet of this school is their love for God and the children. It is evident from the second you walk in the door. Every morning, the teachers spend 30 minutes praying for their students. We got the call at the end of April that she was at the top of the list and would be starting in August. I literally started crying I was so overcome with joy.

We are asking for you to contribute a small donation to help. No amount is too small! Rob and I will match any donation up to $1500!

About This Campaign

Mini-Laps is a fundraising event that is led by the parents of our students. Our children attend the Little Light House and receive much needed therapy services on a tuition-free basis, and Mini-Laps is the time when parents raise money for their child's year at school. At the event, each child takes a lap around the Little Light House track as we celebrate the milestones that they have met at school.

    I am so impressed with all the amazing things I hear and see happening at the little light house. I wish I could donate more, and perhaps down the road that will be possible, but please know I will be praying for continued donation to this wonderful school and that Brielle grows and flourishes here.
