Blessings abound

We had a very blessed day today.  We were asked to present at our church.  I felt like I was in high school speech class preparing to publicly speak.  It went well, even though I was nervous I remember how much I enjoy having the chance to speak about something I believe strongly in to a group.  David did well, standing in front of many people isn't exactly in his comfort zone. :)

At the end of the day we are down to needing 816 more $20 dollar donations!  Thank you to each of you who have contributed with $20, so many have done more, others have given less.  The small gifts mean just as much as the large, every sacrifice made to give this little guy a home is worth it! 

Please continue to pray, pray this little boy home!  Continue to consider giving up a dinner out, or a few lattes to provide a forever family to a wonderful little boy.  Every gift is so appreciated!  Our family and the ones before us and the ones after us who have fund raised their children home understand how hard it is to put the gratitude into word.  Thank you for being part of Jeremy's story.

  1. Speaking in front of a crowd is easily one of the most terrifying things in the world for me, so I give you huge kudos for doing it! Just the thought of it makes me nauseous, although if it was for such a beautiful cause, I might be able to muster up the strength to do it.
