Play Silks

We received some play silks from Mandy over at Blessings Eternal and the kids loved them. Bethany especially seemed to enjoy playing with them. She said she had seen them in a magazine and had always wanted some. Mandy is selling them to raise money for their adoption. They are in the process of adopting two children — one who is the brother of Ben, the little boy they just brought home last year. They didn’t realize that Ben even had a brother. When they found out, they felt that the two boys should be together. Adoption can be expensive and it can be especially hard when you have just completed one. So if you get a chance, stop by her blog and make a donation or purchase some play silks, audio books or jewelry. 







Bella’s Book

I mentioned in my last post that I would love for Bella’s orphanage director to see some pictures of her, and see how happy she is and how well she is doing. Well, right after I posted that, I had several emails from families traveling to the orphanage she was in, and from people who knew of families traveling there — all volunteering to take some pictures of her to the orphanage for me. I was so excited that I immediately made a small book of pictures. It has already arrived and I will be mailing it tomorrow to a family getting ready to travel. I am so happy that I am able to do this. Not only am I sending a book this week, but another family traveling in a couple of months said they will take more pictures for me.  It is so kind for people you don’t even know to volunteer to do something so nice for you. 
The book was a rush job so not the best, but I am still so happy to be able to do this. Maybe next time I will have more time to think about what pictures to use and how to arrange them. 
This is the front of the book. 
This is the back.
Bella, just being her cute self — just taken, so not included in the book. 

We got snow and Bethany built a snowman.
