Final Push to Bring Him HOME

It is time for our Final Push!! We are hoping to have Gavin home before Halloween. That means less then 2 months to raise the final amount for agency fees. How can you help?

We have a fundraiser giveaway here: http://myheartbeeps4orphans.blogspot.com/

Scentsy party going on also: https://nixthewicks.scentsy.us/Scentsy/Buy?partyId=97128222

You can make a tax deductible Donation to Gavin: http://reecesrainbow.org/36628/sponsorthomas-2

We have raised $13,385 in donation!! Amazing!! I want everyone to understand that the majority of those donation came from complete strangers. Actually these are not strangers at all, they are Gods Church Moving!! People with hearts of gold that believe in what we are doing and support us. I have trouble finding the right words to express my gratitude. Please know that we appreciate you. We couldn't have gotten this far without you. We cannot wait to have Gavin HOME. Thank you for your continued support as we travel this journey.  Gavin's new bed will be here on Tuesday!! Pics to follow :)                            Lets Reach this Goal Together!!

Kid's Love

I love watching the world through my children's eyes. Their views are nonjudgmental and pure. Their hearts are innocent to the world around them. I pray I can keep them this way until they are grown and ready :)

Update-where are we now

Sorry everyone for my absence this last week. I was away for a business trip. I had a great time but it is really nice to be home with family. Alright on to the exciting news!! Our Dossier was submitted to the ministry of justice and now we are waiting for our official referral to bring Gavin home. Want some more amazing news?? We are only $3418 away from being funded. WOW God has sent his angels in full force to help us. We had a very generous donation last week from an anonymous donor. Thank you!!! We are nearing the end of this part of the journey and praying to have Gavin home in time for a Halloween costume and candy :)  This is if everything runs smoothly. Gavin's new bed has been ordered and will be arriving in 2 weeks!! We are getting so close and could not have gotten this far without good friends. If you have not read Katie's story you should take a few minutes and read about this incredible little girl and her family. Her mama has done a special post for families also and Gavin's story was included. http://theblessingofverity.com/2012/08/a-little-help-for-our-friends/

We are $3418 away, That is so within reach. I just can't wait to title my post "Fully Funded" Will you help us reach this goal??? If you are unable to donate, please pray and share about our special little boy.
