New Team Forrest Member Found!

Thank you to those that applied and to those helping look for the next Team Forrest Member. After some time interviewing we found a perfect match. The new Team Forrest member had worked with Forrest before, is a friend in the Middleburg community, and has a lot of experience to bring to the table. She will be starting in May, and we will have another blog introducing her later on. We are enjoying every last day with Maylin and will have to have a proper goodbye, but luckily not just yet!

Forrest continues to do well. We got some smiles watching Rush Hour 3 today, and made it outside to the NRH garden in his wheelchair to sit by the Koi Pond in the sun!

While we wish we weren't on this journey, it's been truly amazing the level of support Forrest and the rest of the family have received. Forrest's life has touched so many people and continues to inspire many. You all will never know how much your support means to us and Forrest. But I'd like to share some amazing statistics that shows how global Team Forrest really is. Below is the number of times people have visited Forrest's blog in the last month, broken down by country:

United States
United Kingdom
Turks and Caicos Islands

Thank you for believing in Forrest, all the best from Team 44,


  1. Those numbers are certainly impressive, but not a surprise -- you all are much loved.

    So glad you've found the new team member. Blessings, Robyn's mom.

  2. Wow. Those numbers are amazing. All of the prayers and love being sent up for Forrest are so encouraging to all of us. Wow again! And it is so wonderful to find the perfect match for the new Team Forrest. But again, Maylin, you have been just wonderful. Keep up the impressive progress Forrest! Love surrounds you. I know you can feel it too! We love you!

  3. That's great news! We're so happy to hear that you've found another great Team Forrest member and we're looking forward to meeting her in the blog.

    The blog traffic is another amazing aspect of this journey. The prayers and positive energy for Forrest's full recovery circle the globe. Thank you for keeping us up-to-date.

    Have a great week ahead!

    Diane & Jay

  4. Representing the Swiss contingent here - I am always happy to be updated on Forrest's progress. While I do not know you personally I was "introduced" by my friend Kathy A. who asked for prayers for Forrest early in this journey. I remember him, and all of you, in prayer. You are all an inspiration to the true love of a family.

  5. So glad to hear that things are progressing happily! Love to all. Amy Slayter

  6. What wonderful news about both a new member for your team and the numbers you posted of the people who read Forrest's blog.

    Love and Prayers,
