This year's Dinner Dance

Again this year, we attended the Dinner Dance that the Fiore family hosted for our RDH12 Fund for Sight.  Their daughter, Bella, has the same disease as Finley and we are so grateful that the Fiore's are a part of our group.  They are amazing people.  They have become family.  The get what we are going through.  Bella and Finley crave each other's company on a different level than the rest of their friends.  We have both heard them say "she get's what I am going through".  It is true.  Even as their parents, we won't get what they are going through.  And they have each other to deal with this together.

The Fiore's are the family that lives the closest to us, so we have tried to get together several times a year, attend each other's fundraisers, and gotten to know each other's families.  We are thankful for them every day of the year.

We had so much fun at the Dinner Dance.  Finley didn't want to leave.

Enjoy the pictures
