Gifts for Emily from Polka Dot Moms

Thank you Betty for such a beautiful personalized tile to launch Emily's care package and the Isaiah 43:1 Project!

Look at our first batch of personalized gifts for Emily!
The Lord says, "I have called you by name, You are Mine." (Isaiah 43:1)
I have heard from so many of you. Thank you for your kind words, encouragement and willingness to help. Donations are still being accepted for Emily Schmidt. Please write me at for information.
Your continued prayers for Emily are needed. From Cincinnati Children's Hospital her parents write,
"Emily started a salvage high dose chemo on 10/15 with two cycles before going into her bone marrow transplant. Doctor hopes to transplant her within 8 weeks, as long as the donor pulls through. So many kids here don't have a matching donor. We thank all of you who offered to be tested to be a match and I urge you to act if called upon, as someone's life is depending on it. Since our two weeks here, Emily's lymphoma has already spread into her pelvis, femur and spinal cord and brain. We will not lose our faith that this next round of chemo will help to melt away her cancer so she can have a transplant. Please pray that Emily's donor will come through and a transplant will happen for her."
Emily is not allowed visitors, only mail - so our gifts will be arriving at the perfect time.
Thank you to the moms who donated the first batch of personalized gifts for Emily shown above:

Thank you, ladies!

(Sorry for the photos - it has been raining so much here in Birmingham!)

I will be continuing my prayers for Emily.

I would like to send a batch of Isaiah 43:1-inspired personalized gifts to two children in need for November and December. Do you know a child or family we can love? Let's show them that God knows their name and He knows exactly where they are. Send me a note with a link to their story to

May God bless you!
