The MBJ Foundation for SIDS is official!

We did it! The first of many steps in the long process to start an official foundation and get recognized as a non-profit organization from the IRS has become a reality. I was driving while out showing homes to a client yesterday when the attorney called. I told him that I hope he has good news for me because I was driving. He received the official word that our application for the 501(c)3 status had been approved.

This will make it possible to open so many doors for us. I cried as I drove and called friends and board members to share the great news. Our little angel in Heaven was looking over her mom yesterday. I was getting so frustrated with the process and the waiting and waiting that I was beginning to get down. I have a picture on my wall that says 'Don't worry about tomorrow because God is already there" I have to tell myself this all the time.

It is such a great feeling to have the ability to ask for donations and sponsorships with the power behind is to say that their donation is tax deductible.

God is good.
