So much to do, so little time

I must say my body is starting to feel the effects of doing so much. We are working so hard to bring our Jeremy home.  Every night I sit at the computer to try and ramp up the fundraising, every morning off to work thinking about how to get our son home.  While doing dishes, thinking-What more can I do?  It truly is preoccupying my husband and I's thoughts continually.

We received a wonderful email from a mom who is in country. She told us wonderful things about our little boy.  I gotta admit I'm pretty jealous that she is getting to see him and play with him.  I just  hope he knows in his heart, how hard we are working.  I hope in his dreams his heart knows we are coming.  October is so close when you think of the money we need to raise, October is so far away when you think of how much his parents and brother and sister want him home! 

It still breaks our hearts to know that our little boy is receiving just enough to survive, he deserves enough to thrive.  Being born with an extra chromosome or other disability warrants these children to go to the baby house.  When he turns 4 he'll go to an institution, where even less will be offered to him.  All it takes is a little time and love for these little guys to thrive.  He will have every opportunity when he gets home with mom and dad.  He's going to learn to read, he's going to learn what it's like to wake up to the aroma of breakfast being cooked by his mommy.  When he wakes up in the middle of the night, his daddy will be there to comfort him.  He's got a big brother already so proud of him and can hardly wait to so him all his toys.  There's so many little things that most kids take for granted that Jeremy has never experienced!  Knowing that he won't have to wear girl clothes.....  I've seen so many pictures of little boys wearing girl clothes.  I've also seen the pictures of these "outcasts" gathering around small holes in the fences that keep them from society's view.  Gathering to get a glimpse of the world that has shunned them for their "disability."  These children deserve loving families not to be hidden from sight!

Thank you for your donations.  $20 isn't a lot in the grand scheme of things, but in our journey it is one step closer to the top of the mountain!

Please check out our golf outing post, we are still in need of a lot of sponsors to get the tournament off the ground.
