What if you were the orphan???

What if YOU were the orphan?  What would YOU want someone to do on your behalf?  Here's our adoption story and why we need you to consider partnering with us.

We desperately need your donations to partner with us to bring hope to the life of one little girl.  

.....and GUESS WHAT? We now have 2 amazing friends who together will match your donation dollar for dollar up to $5,000 when you donate via check or credit/debit card through our fundraising site.... www.lifeabitsweeter.com

Please don't delay.  There's a little girl counting on all of us to be her voice of redemption.  Please don't forget to share our video link with your family and friends!  We'll keep you updated via our blog as our partner, Lifesong for Orphans, sends us our donation totals throughout the week.

Much love!

Selah's Room....It Makes My Heart Melt

Selah's room will be my former office space....yes, my coveted office space.  (smile)  It was the place where I hibernate to get work done or when mama needs a little 'time out'.  As I shared before, giving up this space was a big deal for me but one that with God's help, I don't mind sacrificing at all. 

Since the yard sales, I was able to let go of a LOT of 'things' that I've been holding on to for years.  You know those...'one day I might need that' things.  Yet, with each goodbye of an article in that office space, I said 'hello' to making room for baby girl. 

Here's the result....a blank new canvas to create a feel of home for a little girl without one.  It warms my heart every time I walk past her 'space' with anticipation that one day a heartbeat, laughter, kisses, and hugs will fill this space and a family will be forever changed.

Girls Night Out...Every Mama Needs A Break!

Last Thursday night, a few of the Ethiopia adopting mamas and I went out for dinner and dessert.  This is the same crew that Tony and I went out to dinner with in the Summer.  The venue this time....dinner at Clyde's of Georgetown and dessert at the now world-famous Georgetown Cupcake!  Yum, yum and yum!

This was a super treat because it's rare that I get a chance to get out for some 'girl time' with all of the fundraising, being a mom, working-full-time, and trying to keep it grown and sexy in our marriage....ha ha ha....did I really just say that???? Yep, I did!  LOL.  All that to say, balancing it all leaves little free time so hanging with Susan, Stacy, Monica, and Jenn is a big deal!  So here's a little photo flashback of our night out.  I think the next trip is going to an Ethiopian church service together with the husbands and kids.  Should be fun!
