Did you see it? We are on the "Almost There" page on Reece's Rainbow! So what does that mean? It means that right now the only thing that we are waiting for is a travel date. I am so excited and nervous all at the same time. I have been so moved by your outpouring of love for Sydney and Lucien. We are working as hard as we can to get everything done for Sydney and Lucien to be home. We have the nursery all set up for them and can hardly wait until they can sleep in their own bed in the comfort of their own home!
Recently a mother posted about her child that she adopted... she said... "It's hard for us in America to even fathom the neglect, but it is very real and damaging to their little bodies, souls and minds.
He was left in a crib for his entire life. Resulting in many sensory issues, a mouth full of rotten teeth (he had 10 pulled), not knowing how to even chew or swallow, non-verbal and cannot walk - at 7 years old! I believe strongly that it is just as important to rescue these children at a young age as an older child. The damage that is done due to to the lack of touch and love is devastating and completely unnecessary. WHY couldn't someone see a little baby that needed love and not leave him in a crib for 6 years!"
Please help us make sure that Sydney and Lucien do not have to endure that. Let's get them home!!
We are so close!! Only $8500 until we are fully funded! Thank you all so very much we have a fundraiser going on if you are looking for something for Mother's Day! You can check it out HERE !
Also, to help bring in the last $8500 we are having a little giveaway. For anyone who donates OR who will share our blog between now until May 19th, your name will be entered into the giveaway for a $50 Sephora Gift Card. For every $3000 raised we will add another item to the give away. Please leave any donations on the FSP instead of the chip-in. I know that is a lot to raise ($3000) to add another item to the giveaway but our time is limited... we could get a travel date any day now! Once we get a travel date we will only have two weeks to fly out after that so we need to raise the last $8500 FAST!! Unless you decide to be anonymous with your donation, I will be able to contact Reece's Rainbow to find out who all donated. If you shared instead of donated, please leave me a comment so I can add your name to the giveaway.
Thank you all so very much and God Bless!!
