The blue van…

What are we going to do when Mayer outgrows his beloved blue van?
He sure does love this thing.

Remember this video from last summer when he first came home?

I can hardly believe how much he’s changed in a year!  

That blue van has been a favorite every since.

There are no words….

There are no words to describe how much this hurts my heart.
This little girl is eleven years old. ELEVEN. She weighs 10 pounds. Yes, you read that right…TEN POUNDS. She is dying. Not from cancer or some other deadly disease. She is dying from a lack of food, a lack of medical care, a lack of attention, and lack of the love of a family.

This is happening now. This little girl is fighting to stay alive right now.

If you can help provide the funds her family (wherever they are – and yes, I believe a family will step forward to adopt her!) will need to bring her home please go to this blog and chip in. Anything will help.

Pray for Lilliana.

Fairtime fun…

Mayer’s first fair! We also took him to the demolition derby. It was exciting for about…oh…10 minutes. Then we were done. But he loved the rides and his first elephant ear…fair food! Yum!

It’s not OK….

It’s not OK that in the year 2011 children are still living (and dying) like this.  See the link below.  My heart breaks for this precious girl and the thousands of others like her throughout the world who don’t have families fighting for them.   It’s almost more than the heart can handle….
