My "American Girl"

A few weeks ago we received an email from our local JDRF chapter. The "American Girl" company is hosting a fashion show to benefit JDRF for the holiday line. Of course you would need a couple of "D" girls to participate in the show! So guess who's chosen? My very own "American Girl" Maddison!!

We got the email last week saying Maddison was chosen and Maddison has been practicing her modeling ever since! She is SO excited! Another little girl from our support group is a chosen one too! HOW FUN! A day later, it was requested that Maddison come to the news station to do a live promo for the fashion show. Wednesday is the day for the news shoot! Saturday we have rehearsal for the show that follows on Sunday! I am SO happy for Maddison! The best part is, no makeup allowed! Just pure and natural "American Girl" beauty. JDRF has given us so much these past few years. Such fabulous opportunities that we never would have had otherwise. What a blessing to have them supporting US in this journey!
