We are Broke! Help??

This week the agency asked us if we would take home a little boy from the same orphanage as Sara. I LOVE the idea of her having a sibling, I adore mine and think everyone should have them. So we said we will think about it. I even started looking for a cool boy name (they are a lot harder to come by than girl names!).

But, we crunched the numbers, and after traveling to get them we would be about $8000 short on getting a second baby out of that H***hole they call the Congo. I don't want an only kid. If we wait a few years to get another one, again they would have to be older so they would be within a reasonable age difference. So, it is with a very heavy heart that I think I have to admit defeat. We have only had about 5 absolutely amazing people help us with fundraising...thank God for those people, we can't thank them enough!

But that is not enough, without some divine intervention and very generous people we are way out of luck. So, if you read this and you could send $5, then have everyone else you know send $5 maybe we could get one more child out of that place, save one more from becoming uneducated and poverty stricken...can you just ask your friends to help? We sure appreciate it!!!
