“Friendship," said Christopher Robin, "is a very comforting thing to have.” – A.A. Milne

I have been wanting to do a "Drawing Hope" style photo...that shows how I truly feel about the entire Drawing Hope Project, and I how I believe it has made many other people feel, too. This is Riley (The Little Engineer That Could!)...and along with 25 other wonderful warriors in this project so far, they have brought together families, new friendships, new hopes and new possibilities. When I started The Drawing Hope Project I thought it would only inspire the children to see that anything is possible. It has been the most wonderful surprise to witness it inspiring so many - you, if you are reading this - and even myself. It has changed my life, and I hope it continues to change the lives of kids living with health conditions, their families, and everyone who stumbles across the project and finds some magic and inspiration in it. Thank you ALL so very much for all your support along the way! ♥ - Shawn
