It's a bedtime tradition that began with Little Nutbrown Hare, and each night we try to outdo the last...I love you to the moon and the beach and the mountians...and one of my favorites, "to Jesus and the angels" and back...We never imagined we would be saying, I love you to Africa and seems like the furthest imaginable place, but yet in God's perfect timing, we plan to go.... to Africa and back!!! And when we get back, we will have another little cheek to kiss goodnight...please keep us in your prayers and enjoy this journey with us!

We are scheduled for our biometrics (fingerprinting) appointment for next Monday, one more thing to put behind us! We are anxious to get this done so we will hopefully receive our I171h letter soon. That is the very last document needed to complete our Dossier...We have submitted what we have to this point and are on the waiting list for a referral but can not be offered a referral without the complete Dossier. Basically, we are having our place held on the list... Over the past couple of weeks we have had a couple of fundraisers! Some friends had a bake sale/jewelry/donation table for us at a yard sale (so sweet, thank you guys!) and my hair stylist hosted a fundraiser weekend, selling jewelry and taking donations for us. We are so blessed to have so much support!!! Thank you for continuing to keep us, and our journey to bring our little son home, in your prayers...

My Sweet Helper... Emmaline is helping to carry some of our 147 Million Orphans jewelry into a boutique. We are working to get our jewelry featured in some local stores to help spread the word about our adoption and fundraising! She's so excited to be starting swimming lessons soon, she had to wear her hat and goggles out that day :-)

Here are the pieces of jewelry I have on hand right now. The earrings are made from broken glass and rubble in Haiti, by Haitian women. Purchasing these helps to employ the women, allows 147 Million to give 50% of their profits to orphanages around the world and helps us raise money for our adoption expenses! If you see a piece you would like, let me know. You can pay using the Paypal Donate button and I can ship them to you. I've placed a quarter and dime by them for size references. Earrings $17 each, beads $22. Contact me:

Kentucky Blue :-)


Beads made in Uganda out of recycled magazines. I will be ordering more hoop earrings and multicolored beads
