Amazed, and Overwhelmingly Thankful.

It was just three months ago that Hannah and I first began searching, dreaming, and praying for a way to honor Liu Yi and Paige's lives. Their sweet lives touched ours, and because of it, we were never the same. 

We wanted to remember Liu Yi and Paige by helping Tabitha and Lydia, two little girls who also had severe heart problems, and were in desperate need of surgery. So we told their stories, shared their pictures, and then asked for your help. I think it's safe to say we could have never dreamed of this......

  • Tabitha was miraculously healed.
  • Lydia's live saving surgery is fully covered, thanks to your donations, prayers, love and dedication to helping the fatherless all over the world. 
  • Lydia's acute medical costs are also covered from the remaining donations (she has been in the hospital for over a month with pneumonia) Wow. 

To say thank you just doesn't seem adequate. We are overwhelmingly grateful for your support throughout these three months, and absolutely amazed at how God has worked through you

Because of you, two little girls lives are forever changed. 

Thank you, for being a part of the miracle.

Something's Happening

Lydia has been in the hospital for nearly a month. She's been in PICU for nearly two weeks. Now, it looks like she may be released back to a regular ward. Heal, baby, heal!

And other things are happening too. Just check out that chipin! 77% is quite marvelous and I'm amazed. Can we do 33% in three days? Honestly, it's okay if we can't... I don't want to pressure anybody! But, if your spare change is adding up into something rather substantial, you're trying to avoid caffeine this summer and suddenly your coffee budget has a surplus, or maybe you are stocked in summer clothes already and don't need to go shopping...consider putting that extra cash to help save the life of a baby girl who has no mommy or daddy.

A little girl who is fighting for her life.

A little girl who needs us - you.

Something is happening, and you can be apart of it.

Why not?

Five More Days

Five more days until the chipin ends and our fundraiser is over.

Five more days, and this little "honoring" of Liu Yi and Paige will be over.

Here, though not in our hearts.

Lindsay and I are so grateful to those who have come along side of us and helped raise the amazing $10,400 that has come in so far. Thank you. We have raised enough for Lydia's heart surgery, and quite a bit to go towards her other acute medical costs... like this current hospital stay due to pneumonia.

If the fundraiser ended today, we'd be happy. Satisfied. Our darling angel's lives have been honored and honestly, that's all that we set out to do.

So, five more days. Who knows, maybe more money will come in? Maybe it won't... but either way we're excited at what has happened through this fundraiser. Lives are already changing...
