Snow in China

I know I haven't done a great job of posting every day. It's been really busy - and I hope you will forgive me.

However, I wanted to bring your attention to my friend Rett's blog and her most recent post entitled "The Girl's Homeland". Rett and her husband recently adopted twin girls from China.



The orphanage where these girls lived until they were almost 2 years old has been greatly affected by the record-breaking snowstorms in China.

There is an organization that is doing what they can to help:

"LWB is a volunteer organization so 97% of all donations reach the children. Also, all donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a receipt for tax purposes. We can take donations either online or by check.

If you would like to donate online go to http://www.lovewithoutboundaries.com/ and click on ‘Donate’; click ‘Other’; enter your information and in the ‘Notes’ section please write ‘Yifeng Orphanage Assistance’.

To donate by check make your check payable to ‘Love Without Boundaries’ and write ‘Yifeng Orphanage Assistance’ on the Memo line. Mail your check to: Love Without Boundaries, 306 S. Bryant St., Ste. C, PMB 145, Edmond, OK, 73034."


I hope you will take the time to read Rett's blog and learn about her journey to her babies, and think about donating to help these people who helped raise these beautiful girls and continue to care for other children who are waiting for their forever families.

"Yet I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; O my God, do not delay." -Psalm 40:17

Thank you Beth, for getting the word out. Love Without Boundaries has been working hard and we have reached our initial goal of $2,000!!!!! That means the orphanage will get new heaters this week!

Any additional funds will help with blankets, clothing, and food! Everyone has followed God's command to love the fatherless and we are blessed to be a part of it!

You all ROCK and we love you guys!!!

(Our girls thank you too! Their friends will be warm soon!!!)
