Second, I want you to know I have also adopted several of the family members and have spent most of the past week between my sewing machine and my computer making sure everyone gets a quilt and that my friends is where it gets complicated.
I cannot tell you who to make the quilt for if you have decided to make it for someone else and I understand those people who know some of the men and have worked with some of them wanting to take those and I say quilt where your heart leads you.
However, if you ask me for a family and then come back and tell me you want a different one, I can only tell you that many of the families are already adopted and all of the children are, but if you absolutely want to make them another one, I cannot stop you from going where your heart leads you, but I want you to think about perhaps also making a quilt for the original family you were assigned.
If you cannot do this, I understand, but my keeping everyone assigned does get a bit sticky at that time when I am pulling you off another family member.
I am NOT the boss, a bully or a leader, I am the facilitator nothing more and nothing less and I facilitate so everyone receives at least one quilt. Please know I am just helping ensure we get everyone covered so one family doesn't wind up with 50 and another family nothing.
Here are the family members I have left:
Dustin Deford - 8 siblings **still need 6 more**
Scott Norris - Heather his girlfriend
Wade Parker - Alicia his fiancee and his dad
Garrett Zuppinger - Dad Bryan
Eric Marsh - His Parents
Chris Mackenzie - His mom Lauri
Grant McKee - His dad G. Scott McKee, Fiancee Leah Fine and his grandparents
If there is someone here I assigned you and has already been taken thank you, just let me know!
