My wonderful Mema donated a beautiful quilt to help raise money for our expenses once we get our boys home. There will be many from beds to clothes to medical expenses!
This is quilt is truly ONE of a kind; hand stitched by Mema, who is 80 years young. She only uses a machine to sew the edges so it can be machine washed, the rest is all by hand!
It measures 6’ 11’’ by 5’ 9” and its beautiful!
Just make a donation of $5 or more! Click on the Chip-in button above or email me for my address.
We will use random.org to draw the winner on
January 15, 2011 (or when we get home).
and give to the DS boys 6+!
Yea, hopefully this will help find Heath and Maxim thier families!
Also, please feel free to post this on your blog or your social networking sites!
Thank you to you all for your continued support!

I found this post on Julia's blog. Momma to Aaron who was just brought home from an institution in Eastern Europe. She has other posts about her time there and they are definitely worth reading but you must read this. Please spread the word!! http://covenantbuilders.blogspot.com/

I read this on my friends blog. She is in my boy's country. I just had to share this information. This little dude was one of the first to be transfered after I started following RR. I remember my heart sank after I got the news, now I feel there is still a chance for him to find a family. Please share his story.
Recognize This Face?
I don't know if I can openly share how the whole encounter went so I will just say that we were able to go and while we were there I was able to see Maxim. To hold him and love on him. To laugh as he passed gas and laughed about it. That was one of the best parts of the visit, how he thought "tooting" (is it called that when boys do it?) was just the funniest thing - just like any other 6 year old little boy would. He was so sweet and so alert and attentive to those who had come to visit with him. Here's a little rundown of his abilities that I witnessed first hand:
- He can pull up to stand and walk with assistance.
- He knows his name and responds to it.
- he has a sweet nature, personality, and sense of humor
- he copies hand motions (I believe he could learn to sign)
- He can crawl
- he likes cars! :) They said he crawls tro the window to look out when the car comes to their building.
