Ethan’s expression relaxed. He gave Kelsey a pleasant nod as she settled back in her seat. “It is a charity of a sort, but please don’t think that your family’s income is considered. This donor wants to give a sick child something to look forward to. To experience something that seems—or seemed—impossible. It’s more than a charity. You have all been faced with family adversity, watching your children suffer from a variety of serious illnesses. ” His gaze scanned the women. “I think that’s what the donor has done.

And she didn’t really. “It’s difficult to stay positive, but it’s important that we do. Ethan said something about people without hope, and that spoke to me. I don’t want to be someone feeling hopeless. ” Kelsey’s eyes widened. ” Lexie’s heart flew to her throat, but she managed to give a no-big-deal shrug. ” Her wide-eyed look vanished, and she gave way to a quizzical grin. “Hmm? ” Lexie shook her head.
