Do you ever wonder what happens to the children who "age-out" and are no longer adoptable? The outlook is grim, but there IS HOPE! We can do something. Check out this video sponsored by Gladney Center for Adoption. Get involved! These children need us.
Holiday shopping time is here! What better way to spend money than to buy gifts that give two-fold. Give a wonderful, handmade gift to a friend, family member or co-worker, and know that the proceeds are going to either an orphange &/or the poor beggars in Ethiopia (check out this blog for CUTE stuff like the threads Gabriel is sporting), or towards women in Uganda working to sustain a livelihood and improve their community (check out www.suubiafrica.org).
BTW: Gabriel could be a model, huh?! (This will be the closest he gets to modeling as long as I call the shots, however).
Loise Hogarth, the director of "Angels in the Dust" requested I post the "director's trailer" version of her wonderful, heartbreaking, must-see movie. She also would like others to check out these bracelets women from South Africa make. Please go to http://www.orphanbracelet.org/ to help out orphans and mothers. Also, rent the movie. It is so well done.
