One big blessing!

I started yesterday off, like any other day, reading my emails.

I came across an email from a gal I know through our online adoption community wanting to donate to help bring Elijah home.

Well let me tell you how this started from her kind donation to being what I call a God shot all the way!

You see she is fund raising for a mission trip to South Africa and she is taking her daughter, who believes she is to help the orphans. Her daughter is also from China and only 6. How sweet is that!

How sweet and kind (ok, it's so much more than that) that she felt led to donate to us. Well she emailed again to say that when she got to work, she had received an anonymous donation for the same amount she donated to us! I absolutely love how she said it. "Just like Jesus." Boy oh boy is she right!

I am still in awe how God blessed both of us yesterday, today and always. Thank you God!!

Cleft Bottle Donation to Elijah's Orphanage

As you know we are waiting for our Travel Approval (possibly the end of June, first of July) to bring Elijah home who has Cleft Lip and Palate.

I have been thinking about what might make a great Orphanage donation and how important it is for the cleft babies to have a bottle that is specific to their need.

Cleft babies can't use a regular bottle as they are not able to suck because of their open palate and there are bottles that are made just for cleft babies.

So I thought I would love to take some Cleft Lip/Palate Nursers to donate to Elijah's Orphanage.

There are two different types of bottles and I've decided on the Enfamil Ready-to-fill Plastic Nursers. They come in boxes of 6 and I've found them on the Enfamil site for $19 a box.

So I would like to ask if any one would like to donate (any amount) towards helping us take some of these bottles, as many as we can. We would be so grateful!

Just click on the "RED" ChipIn button at the top of the sidebar to the right if you would like to donate.

Thanks so much for considering to help another cleft Lip/Palate baby thrive! :)

A little update on our Travel Approval

We got an email yesterday from our agency saying that we should have our travel approval (TA) in 4-6 weeks and then travel 2-3 weeks after that. So end of June or beginning of July to travel?

Wow oh wow, it's seeming more and more real now!

The Swine Flu and Travel Approval

Will we or won't we travel? That is the question.

At this time our agency is saying we will.

Praying we will also.
