Crayons and Construction Paper

Hi to all our readers - We are making a plea today.  Our orphanage has hired a wonderful lady named Emma to come in and work with the children so that they can learn a few English words (such as momma, daddy, drink, potty) and basic concepts (shapes, colors, etc) before they leave for America.  The families adopting through Harmony House are wanting to send over a care package or monetary donation to help buy supplies since they have told us that finding preschool materials is almost impossible in that part of China.  They would love to have some simple things like crayons, construction paper, glue sticks, child scissors, labels, markers, coloring pages, etc - and apparently, even though we can go to any store on the block and find these things in America - that's not the case in China.  So, I am asking if each of our blog readers would make a $5 (or more or less) donation this week using our Paypal button.  Just mark it HH Supplies and we will get it to the right people so these beautiful children can work with Emma and be ready for their new families to bring them home.  We say "Thank You" in advance and we'll let you know how much is raised through our blog this week.

June 1st was Children's Day in China and here are some pictures Lori's orphanage sent over yesterday.  Enjoy!


  1. Hey--I made a donation, but didn't see a spot to mark it for HH Supplies. So...if you see one from me, it was for that purpose! :)

    Lori is looking mighty cute!!! William and I were talking about her pictures and we can't wait to get our hands on her! She's precious!

  2. LOVE these pics!!! I can already hear her and Chloe chattering back and forth:) Didn't know you put the "donate" button on your blog. If it's okay, I'll add a link to your blog on the facebook event for your fundraiser so people can donate if they can't make it. Let me know....

  3. I am so glad I found your blog! Your daughter is beautiful, absolutely precious. Be confident that God will provide a way for you to bring her home. He has been unbelievably faithful in his provision with our family, taking us on a journey we never could have planned for to make a way for us to adopt.

    Sikeston is an every-other-year stop for our family and we LOVE it. Many fun memories from my childhood eating meals at Lambert's and shopping at Boomland. Thanks for the comments!

  4. Hi Camille!

    The little store is in Delta, of all places! Nuts. She is a little too expensive, but it is a neat little trip. My address is 505 Park. I am going to make a donation it!
