Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving greetings from snowy BrightWood!
Hello friends and Happy Thanksgiving from Team 44!  We have so many things to be thankful for this are just a few! Our amazing family and friends that bless us with unending love and encouragement; the many doctors, nurses, teachers and therapists that have spent countless hours helping Forrest on his journey;  A Place to Be and the Same Sky Project for giving Forrest a chance to share his story; the opportunity to travel to Bermuda as a family; Forrest graduating from high school and starting college (and Austin starting Grad school!); and of course, the light of hope and belief in Forrest from each of you, his steadfast supporters.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving and move into the ever-busy Christmas season, we would like to invite you to a very special event.  Next Friday evening, December 5th, individuals from A Place to Be (including Forrest) will be performing in a Holiday Recital.  It begins at 6:30pm at the Salamander Resort and Spa in Middleburg.  Please come for a night of inspiration and holiday joy!

Wishing all of you a safe and blessed Thanksgiving,
Team 44
