Praise God...keep spreading the word

In the last 24 hours over $6000 has been raised to purchase desperately-needed formula for Ethiopia! This formula will supply AWAA's transition home (where Micah lived for about 5months), as well as affiliated orphanages!! Let's keep it going!

THE GOAL IS $12,500 BY MOTHER'S DAY!!!

Someone asked me yesterday if it would have been possible for us to take a suitcase full of formula to Ethiopia when we traveled to pick-up Micah...WE DID!! We took 2 18-gallon Rubbermaids full of formula...and the airlines charged us $300 USD for our extra checked baggage, too! While families continue to pay the airline fees to take donations to Ethiopia, each family can only supply a few days to a week's worth for ONE institution, but there are HUNDRED'S that need supplies--- the need is soooo great! When you think of orphans, think in terms of millions...yes, I know it's difficult to wrap your mind around that figure (it was for me), but now I've seen it with my own eyes!!!

Keeping checking Tom Davis' blog for more amazing stories from AWAA families -- visit blogs I have listed under At Home With Their Children, too. Many families are sharing their before and after pics (which is very painful for most us) to help raise awareness for the many precious babes in Ethiopia.


For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe.He executes justice for the fatherless and the widow, and loves the sojourner, giving him food and clothing.
Deut 10:17-18
