tell a friend


Calling all prayer warriors..


Please do not forget to pray for our friend
Ollie Faith today!!

This beautiful little girl has captured the hearts of so many, and we are praying for a quick recovery from her open heart surgery as well as grace for her family....

Spread the word!

And speaking of telling a friend..



Please be praying and spreading the word for this beautiful little girl....


As of right now Albina does not have a committed family, and although I hoped to be posting news on that, so far she is still available for adoption. If you hadn't noticed, she now has over $10,000 in her grant fund on Reece's Rainbow, thanks to the generosity of an anonymous family who matched the donations that came in for her during the month of May!

I just wanted to thank everyone who commented on this post. It really helped to validate my feelings, knowing that there are quite a few other parents who have dealt with these kind of things before. I took a lot away from the comment section and made some mental notes about how to handle situations like that in the future.

And speaking of the comment section- if you come here often and don't leave a comment because you think I don't read them or need them...I do. They mean so much to me, and I often go back to re-read them when we're having a bump in our otherwise happy and smooth road! And even if you read, but don't have a child with special needs, I love to hear your questions or input. It's funny how much the comments mean to me, but if you're a blogger you know what I'm talking about:) Feedback is wonderful!


One more little order of business- I've wanted to do a giveaway for Lily's followers for awhile. We're approaching the 500 mark, and when we hit it I'll be hosting a Five Hundred Followers giveaway with some sweet prizes! So tell a friend and spread Lily Love !


Feel free to grab her button off my sidebar and post it on your blog...and let's get this party started!

Tell a friend!

Miss Lily is very bust on the phone :) She is just adorable. I have been waiting on an update on Albina.. I check daily on your site and RR to see if she has been moved to "A family Found me" hopefully soon.... :)

Love the pics of Lily on the phone. I've been praying for Olllie & her family since our family is familiar with that difficult day & the miracles that are worked by God and by the hospital staff. Thanks for sharing Lily with us. :)

Lily is such a beautiful little girl. She looks so sweet talking on the phone. I have visited your blog several times but never left a comment before. I have an 8 year old son with speech and developmental dyspraxia. He is also a very beautiful child and his strength and determination is amazing. He is my little star.
