From Jadon’s Hope Foundation and Getty Owl Foundation:
On behalf of our families and our foundations, we would like to thank everyone who participated in the Swing Giveaway. We are simply humbled by the response. Thank you all for taking the time to enter your child. Over 100 entires were collected. We then had the hard task of randomly choosing 12 recipients for the giveaway. After a little deliberation we decided that 12 was simply not enough, so we upped it to 20! We hope you enjoy your swings. Now go and create new memories and swing to your heart’s content. 🙂
The following families have been randomly chosen as recipients of our Swing Giveaway:
All families listed will be contacted by either Jadon’s Hope or Getty Owl this week. Congratulations and enjoy!
We are so proud and humbled to announce that the Bucks for Kids fundraiser has produced an incredible total. We would like to thank the Grubbs Family, their Dutch Bros. staff and family, and everyone that stopped by to purchase a drink to help support Getty Owl Foundation.
Together you raised $5,434
We are so thankful for all of the support. We are and will always be a 100% volunteer non-profit. Funds raised give us the ability to continue to support and advocate for families affected by SMA. We cannot do the work we do without the support of many. Thank you so very much for giving this opportunity to us. We know how special this is.
We would first like to thank Jadon’s Hope for partnering with us on this really exciting giveaway. You guys do so much for the community and we thank you for your hard work and determination to help SMA families. We look forward to announcing the awesome winners next Monday!
Attention all SMA families!
A few families in the community have found these swings to work really well for their SMA kiddos and we think a few more families should have some fun. Each foundation will give away 6 swings for a total of 12.

Time is certainly jetting by us at the speed of light. So many memories created and cherished throughout the spring and summer. I have been so guilty of not getting to the blog and talking about all of them. Something incredible will happen and then while I would like to post about it, something even cooler happens. I guess you can say we have all been under a huge stack of awesome. Stopping to write about it has just been difficult.
So I used what movie skills I currently have (which is almost none) to create a video of Getty’s Adventures. Some huge highlights of the past 6 months:
-Movie Days with friends. Zootopia, Finding Dory, The Secret Life of Pets.
-Kindergarten was so amazing.
-Spending time with fur brothers.
-Make A Wish meeting!
-OMG a week at Disneyland!
-Met all different cast members.
-Went swimming in a big pool.
-Sunbathed beside the big pool.
-Got VIP status at the Disney parade.
-Met baby KJ.
-Celebrated Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.
-Spent time up in the stander and sitting upright.
-Got a haircut.
-Listened to tons of music and books.
-Lost teeth and got cool presents from the Tooth-fairy.
-Reading on my own and out loud.
-Graduated from Kindergarten.
-Celebrated with my friends.
-Spent a week near the beach to relax.
-Enjoyed a few playdates and birthday parties with my friends.
-4th of July was awesome.
-Had a good time at the State Fair.
-Watching lots and lots of soccer!
-Loved time with family and friends.
That is a pretty stellar list, if you ask me. Getty was active, mobile, and just so social this year. We are so proud of her growth and independence.
Enjoy the video.
While Getty may have SMA, but SMA clearly does not have her.
