One more sleep....

Well, we leave to start our journey to get our kids in the morning!!

We have been counting down the days and the nights till we go! 

I keep telling them 5 more sleeps..4 more sleeps..3 more sleeps.. 2 more sleeps....

ONE MORE SLEEP!!!  We leave when we wake up!


I'm sure many of you are wondering...

How on earth are you going without getting all the money you need???

We were fortunate enough that a family member was able to take out a loan on her 401K.

What does this mean??

Are you in the clear then? Did they donate it to you? No more fundraising?


We will be working very diligently over the coming months to raise the remaining funds to pay back the account from which it was borrowed.

My family member is retiring in June and the money must be back in her account by then or we face a HUGE penalty for early withdrawal and taxes.

We have had several donations come in over the last few days~ THANK YOU!!!

We had $580 come in since the last update.

That takes our need down $18,057.

We pray that you will prayerfully consider helping save these children.

We can't wait to meet them!!

We leave out in the morning to go to the airport and will be taking off at 12:19pm!!

We will then be on a very long and tiring journey consisting of over 24 hours, 3 planes and 2 layovers.

We will arrive in their country on Monday aftn about 2:30pm.

Please, when you think of us pray for the orphans of the world.

Pray for the children that will be left behind.

This is going to be an amazing experience for all of us.

I can't help but think about all the other kids there that will see us and interact with us daily and dream and hope and pray that one day that will be their family coming to get them.

If you haven't already heard this song, or even if you have, please take the time to do so...
