Wonderful Wednesday

What a difference a week makes!!



Aaron's first casting was HUGE. 



 The difference between the first and second casting was enough to shock the doctor into saying we may only have to do this two or three more times!!



WOW!!



Wow!!



We were expecting at least 8 weeks of grueling trips, and now we may only be doing half that number.


Wow!!



Aaron is only looking pleasant in this picture because Dr. Z has not started the hard part.  When the real casting starts... Mama is not taking pictures but is instead loving on her screaming babe!!

But Wow!!

We are so relieved!  Of course we are not being overly optimistic.... but cautiously happy.... Oh Yes!!

Okay... On this Wonderful Wednesday....

While I rejoice in our casting good news...

 I want to share what one 19 year old girl is doing for a couple of needy TRANSFERRED orphans....

She's doing a LOST GET FOUND Giveaway... 


and DO YOU RECOGNIZE ONE OF THOSE ORPHANS???? 

SWEET LITTLE HEATH!!

One of our Lost Boys.

Both these babes have been transferred and both are just desperate for a family.  

And a 19 year old girl who has her head on straight is doing everything she can to help them find families!!

She gets a standing ovation in my book.

She is fighting for these two babes and people... we need to support her!!!

  

She was able to acquire a whole ton of Giveaway items so your chances of winning something is pretty huge!!  So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE donate to either Heath or Celine.

PLEASE GO HERE AND SUPPORT THE EFFORTS OF A GIRL WHO IS NOT OUT PARTYING BUT WHO IS FIGHTING FOR TWO HELPLESS BABES ACROSS THE OCEAN.  

And finally.... whoever sent us the sweet package from Art of Appreciation Gift Baskets... Goodness me what a sweet surprise!!  Thank you so much... And the family who sent Aaron a 150 piece large sized puzzle... THANK YOU - he is chomping at the bit to build it!  And the other family who sent him a nerf gun he can use with his mouth.... WE ARE JUST OVERCOME!!  The kindness of strangers takes my breath away!!  These are but a few of the gifts we have received over the last year.  I am so lousy at thank you's.... I get stunned by the gifts and just overcome with how to even express our gratitude.  Please know that we are so blessed to have so many who love our son and who have lavished him and his family with blessing upon blessing.

  6. Hi Julia,

    The news about Aaron's cast is wonderful. What a relief.

    I posted this on Patti's blog too but wanted to point out, if you didn't notice, that little Brent (Spencer's friend) has also been transferred. Please keep showing those boys' faces. They need their family to see them and start working to bring them home! He heart just fell when I saw Brent has been transferred too.
