This girl is the reason for this special event: Meet Addi.
Isn't she beautiful? She's a very happy, active 21 month old who loves to climb, run, dance, and play. However, Addi and her wonderful parents, Daren & Shannon Black, were just given a devastating diagnosis of FOP. I've attached THIS VIDEO CLIP that explains her condition.

The short version: over time all her muscular system will harden into bone leaving her unable to move. I can't imagine as a parent watching a child go through this process.
But there's hope. Medical research has advanced greatly in recent years. As with any research, it takes funds to move forward. Addi is in a race against time. We are hopeful a cure or at least some methods to slow the process will be found before Addi's disease progresses too quickly.
If you are touched by Addi's story, please donate. Any donation, large or small, helps! If we find 100 people to donate $5, it adds up fast! Imagine if we found 200 people to donate! Please feel free to post a link to this blog post on your own blogs, on your facebook pages, or through emails.

Donating is EASY. You can sign up for a mini session. Or you can donate to the cause by mailing a check to me or directly to IFOPA. You can even give a donation through paypal. Please be sure to dedicate your donation to Addi Black. And as a thank you to everyone who donates, your name will be entered into a raffle for some awesome prizes. All prizes are being donated by the fabulous vendors.

You can view the prizes HERE, on Addi's blog. If you are interested in donating a prize, please contact Shannon through Addi's blog.
If you have questions about the mini-session event, please email me at or call me at 208-351-8734.

Thanks to all who give. Generosity always finds its way back to you!
