Mina is a precious little girl recently rescued from an orphanage in Eastern Europe who is now finally home with her forever family! She had been without a mother or father to love her & care for her each day. No one to rock her, kiss her gently or tell her she's loved. She is blessed with an extra chromosome known as Down syndrome, which for her that meant a life of being viewed as worthless in the country she was born into & a life without hope. Because of this her parents gave her up at the age of 6 months when they found out the diagnosis & from there her life progressivly went down hill. We are the Gower family residing in OKC who recently adopted this little angel. She was extremely malnourished and unable to do just about anything when we first met her. She will be 2 in January & is the size of a 3-6 month old weighing 14lbs. She continues to amaze us at how quickly she is progressing with love and nutrition. She has learned to sit up, roll over, feed herself finger foods, hold her own bottle and loves to interact with toys and other children. Her life has changed so much in such a short period of time and will forever be changed! Thank you Lord for putting a burden on our hearts to rescue this little blessing and making her apart of our family!

Fliers in the JBF Sale!!!

I talked to the JBF consignment sale coordinator this morning and found out that we can put 500 fliers in their family packs for just $50. They will be handed out at the week long event here in a couple weeks. I have to get the fliers made, printed and to her by tomorrow am. 

We are so excited about it and feel it will be a great opportunity to get the word out there for these little ones.  My prayer is that it won't just help us financially but be a voice for others as well and lead other families to have a heart for adopting and through that more children can find a forever home!!!

So that is what I am working on today!! :) Praise the Lord!
