How Can you Help?

We still haven't heard about our court date. It's been a hard week of waiting for me. My heart skips a beat every time the phone rings. I think 6 court dates were given out this week and we still haven't heard anything. Despite that, it is time for us to start planning for our first trip to Ethiopia. We will probably be traveling in December or early January.

We have had many people ask us what they can do to help us as we prepare for our trip. One way we are preparing is we are starting to collect donations for Hannah's Hope. Hannah's Hope is the transition home where Mia Grace will be. She isn't there yet, but we are praying she gets to move very soon. Our agency sent out an urgent needs list last week. If you can donate any of these items, we will greatly appreciate it.

Donations Items for HH:

1. Diapers (all sizes)

2. Soy-based Formula

3. Shoes and Clothing for Older Children

4. Shampoos, Conditioners, and Lotions for Older Children

5. 10-20 three-ring binders (2-3 inch)

6. Cold medications for older children and adults

7. Amoxicillin for all ages (250mg or 400mg)

8. Whole Organic Flaxseed

9. Slash Pocket Folders (photo attached)

10. Laptops, specifically one for the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs in Mekelle, Tigray

11. 2-3 Pairs of Reading Glasses from CVS (actual prescription strength not known)

If you want to donate any of these items or anything else you think the orphanage could use, please let me know. I don't mind coming by to pick things up.

Also, we are planning to have a garage sale December 3rd at the ULM BCM. We are still trying to raise the last bit of funds for our adoption. If you would like to donate anything for our sale, we would be so thankful. Again, I don't mind picking up anything. Some sweet friends have offered to let us use their storage building to store garage sale items, so we can store whatever you would like to donate for the sale.
