I’m thrilled to announce… No wait, not thrilled. Overjoyed? Over the moon? REALLY, REALLY REALLY EXCITED!!! Yeah, really, really, really, really excited to announce that: We are hosting Nazar for Christmas!!!!!!!!1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   This sweet little face is coming soon to my house:       I wonder what he will be like.  I can’t wait to buy little boy clothes and stuff.

Fundraising to host an orphan this summer!

Exciting news! So exciting I’m about to explode. Our family has decided to host an orphan from Ukraine this summer for six weeks.  Rosie is absolutely thrilled.  She’s already pledged all the money in her piggy banks to go towards the fees. We’re going through the program Children’s Cultural Connection. The little girl we want to host is six years old.  Her name is only listed as “K”.  She likes play dough, dancing, dress-up, and is above average in her studies....
