Sisters :) , thank you's, changes, Families needed!

Kelly , Kristi's sister has been kind enough to donate a tshirt from her organization , ORDINARY HERO , like the one Kristi is modeling :) . for every $10 donation you make to Timothy's grant fund using the chip in, you will get ONE chance to win. leave a comment with the $ amount and you will be entered for a chance to win :) YOU HAVE TO LEAVE ME A COMMENT, because ALL the personal info goes straight to Reece's rainbow, so I only see the amount go up, not who donates :) on the 16th Tuesday, at 9pm I will have my kids pull a name out of a bowl with each $10 donation in it for a chance :) $20 is 2 chances, etc. We will be doing another fun giveaway after that one...stay tuned !!
How cool would it be to win one of these awesome shirts and help a WONDERFUL LITTLE BOY!!!! COME ON GUYS :) DON'T FAIL ME NOW :) Its only $10.....teeny tiny amount in the course of a day :)












Is there anything sweeter then seeing your kids love each other ? Baby girl and Boo are so sweet together. Bug is a wonderful big sis. I have to get a video of Baby Girl kissing on Boo, it is the sweetest thing :)




We hit the local fair last week and it was FREEZING ! Only about 47 but with the wind....chiiiiilllly :) I like the fairs but some of those carni folks, are a
bit creepy :(





~BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO MICHELLE AND MICHAEL FOR THE REFERRAL OF THEIR NEW BABY BOY :) :)





Ok BIG THANK YOU'S for donations to Timothy's grant fund




GO OUT TO~


Marilyn




~ Gaby




~Kristi J




~Leslie B




~anonymous X 2








your magnets will be on there way soon. I have to get them out of a box , so bear with me ;)








I know we can get to $350 !! You guys are awesome. If everyone who has a heart for orphans, donates just $10....well , that's alot of money LOL!! PLEASE spread the word and remember every little bit DOES HELP :) :)






~Ethiopia has big changes in store. I guess a lot still has to be ironed out, but it looks like they are requiring families to make 2 trips :( this has its ups and downs,, it will be more expensive (flights to Ethiopia ain't cheap :) and leaving your baby/child behind IS VERY HARD. we learned that while adopting Boo from Guatemala. It hurts. But the good, is you will get a chance to spend time with your child that you would have missed out on. And meeting an older child , it will give you some time to get to know them just a bit. I am still unclear on the WHY of it all. Anyone have any ideas?





finding families one child at a time :)



This is sweet Lucy. She is waiting for her forever family in Mexico. They take very good care of the kids there. She has down syndrome :)


MAX & LERA :)





Ok how stinkin cute are these TWINS !!! Oh I want them :) lol. They are 18 months old and developing on target :) They are loving and sweet.
How cute??? They are in Eastern Europe and total costs with travel are under $24,000. Oh these beautiful babies need a mama and a daddy !! They DONOT have down syndrome. But sadly they are both HIV + ok dont turn away. HIV is so treatable now. These babies have a long life ahead of them with treatment HERE in the states. Visit project hopeful.org to learn more about raising kiddos with HIV. They are on the Reeces Rainbow site under "OTHER ANGELS" SIBLINGS :) GO take a peek and donate or pray over them. Hiv makes them special needs, so they need our help:)
HIV ,It is not the scary condition it used to be.




ok, thats it for now. bye:)
