We received pictures of the Lila stone in North Dakota recently. (Thank you Crystal!) That means as of now we have a picture of a Lila stone in all 50 states. We first passed out the stones at Lila's Memorial Mass on February 23, 2013 and we got the North Dakota pictures on February 17, 2014. In just under a full years time, someone has taken Lila and her memory to every single state. Mike and I thank everyone so much who has ever gone out of their way to take a picture for us. If you got us a state or just sent a picture at all, thank you. It means so much to us and we cannot believe how many pictures we have gotten. Lila is truly an amazing little baby who helped inspire this project. Keep on sending your pictures too, we would like to still be getting new pictures years and years from now. In the first year we collected 860 Lila stone pictures and so far in the second year we have 89! Amazing! Now lets see what we can do the rest of this year.
Mike and I still planning on traveling to North Dakota too. Just because we got the pictures does not mean we will not go there. We are trying to figure out the details of when and where in North Dakota, but it will happen. We feel strongly that Lila had a hand in picking North Dakota to be the last state after we said we would go to that one ourselves. There must be something there she wants us to see or experience and it will be a great tribute to her.
