Wow, I can't believe it is already Thursday.  Our week has just zoomed by.  I took my sweet Aaron to the ear doctor yesterday and got the A OK, that his ears were healing well and that the patch on his ear drum, was not forming any scare tissue, so he shouldn't lose anymore hearing!!!!!  THANK YOU LORD!!!!  We have been blessed.  The steroids and antibiotic they gave Hannah last week, kept her out of the hospital, though there were two days I really was worried we were headed there.  Thank you for all the prayers!!

Now, the point of this entry.  We only have 3 gaves left in our Ipad II fundraiser and we are still very short in our funds.  I have been praying about this and this is what I have been told.  I am changing my goal for this fundraiser.  It was originally $17,000.00, but I have prayed and prayed and prayed about this.  I have been shown that my new goal should be just $2000.00 for this fundraiser.  We still need a total of $16,000.00 to ransom Clare's sweet little life!

I am not sure JUST is the right way to put it.  Let me show you what $2000.00 + what we have already made, will do for us. 

$2,000.00 dollars for OUR ADOPTION will: 

Will help make our final payment to the agency.

Will help us make sure our dossier will get Notarized, Certify and Authenticate.

It will make sure our dossier is translated and sent to China.

It will help pay the fee to the Chinese government, for them to review our paperwork.

There will be some left for travel expenses and other fees that will soon come due to China!!!

Isn't it amazing!!  We are almost half way in our fundraising and $2000.00 would get us there.

             DO YOU THINK YOU CAN HELP US???? 

It is easy, we are in great need of prayer.  Prayer doesn't cost you much, just a little bit of time and will be greatly appreciated!!  He will listen to our prayers!  Please pray that the funds will come in, that my "Alien" file will be located and our I 797 will be approved and mailed to us soon, for patience and grace during all of this.  Thank you

Spread the word.  I have over 1000 friends on facebook, if everyone could spread the word, I would forever be grateful!!  Blog about it, tweet about it, email your friends about it, and please facebook about it.  Please ask your friends to spread the word or send them here to read and decide on their own.  There is great power in masses.

Donate.  Every penny counts towards saving our little girl.  Every penny we raise gets her closer to her forever family, to her momma and daddy, that can't wait to hug and kiss her, her new friends, and a new life of freedom.  She will be educated and she will receive the medical care she needs.

Look at this beautiful face, isn't she worth the effort??

Look here, my girl is learning to walk!!  But please look past her, this one time.  Look at all the sweet babies that are in cribs, they all have something "wrong" with them and have been deem "unacceptable" where they live.  Please help us bring Clare home, so she doesn't have to spend her whole life "hidden from the world".

God Bless everyone that reads this and everyone that acts.
