"Fill Their Stockings With Hope" Thank you's and MORE!


It is so hard to hug everyone of you from my office here in MSP...  But, that is exactly what I want to do!!!!  So many of you joyfully gave to 20 special orphans in China...  You gave so much that we are hopeful that the number of children in our care will grow next year..  We are hopeful that one or two can be pulled from their orphanages and put in to the loving care of a family until it's time..  Time for their forever!!!

I can promise our precious Bamboo Babies will have birthday parties, gifts, clothes, food and lots of hugs in 2013.  Some of those may come from me personally..  I have been invited to love on our Bamboo Babies this spring..  The details are being finalized soon, but I am praying that I do indeed get to go.  
And, if I do, I am going to tell them about some very special angels that care about them from afar. What a blessing that will be!~

Together we raised $7520 for Pearl River Outreach!  That is 151% of our original goal!!  How awesome is that?  Pretty fantastic I think!!


But, it get's better!!!  Look what we raised as a group for the children affected by "Fill Their Stockings With Hope!"  
It has been a blessing to partner with my friend Stefanie representing, "An Orphan's Wish" and my friend Lisa representing, "Half The Sky."  It's so humbling to be a part of this event!  
One I hope we get to continue together annually for a long time!
