Garrett's House is dedicated to the support, advice, and education of a genetic skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa or EB for short. Currently there is no cure or effective treatment for EB. Please take a moment to learn about EB, and how you can support others who struggle with EB everyday. Garrett's House also honors the memory of those who lost their brave fight against EB.

Carson and John

I have been wanting to blog about this for a week now....just having trouble finding time.

You see there is this AWESOME family in California, the Cannell's. They are a blended family with a total of 8 kids, the oldest has EB.  They are currently in the process of adopting not one, but TWO boys, brothers, from East Europe who have been in an orphanage all their life:(  And for anyone who has looked into adopting you know how costly it can be.  This family has to raise a lot of money in a very short amount of time.  Thank to two WONDERFUL EB mom's that I know, the Cannell's have received over $5000 in donations in less than a week just by Patrice and Courtney talking about Carson and John on their blogs!!! 

I wanted to do my part and spread to word to my family, friends and blog reads who might not have heard of this story before!

I read more about Carson and John and what all is involved in an international adoption, please read the blog post Patrice just wrote this evening!  

She sums it up MUCH better than I could:-)
