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!

Garage Sale July 15, 16, & 17 8am-4pm

Ok... so I'm extremely exhausted and can barely keep my eyes open but thought I'd write a quick post to update everyone on the sale!

I have spent this whole past week cleaning out the garage, organizing, moving hundreds of boxes and getting things ready, now the sale is here and I am down right tired :)

So my garage is completely full to the brim. There is hardly any squeezing room between tables and things to get the garage door closed but we managed to cram everything in.   We will be getting up around 6:30am to start pulling lots of stuff out of the garage to line the driveway. 

We have just about anything imagineable:  beds, furniture, antiques, books, children's stuff galore, children's books, toys, clothes, shoes, bedding, Adult clothes, shoes, purses, accessories, etc, holiday, houseware, kitchenware, decor, picture frames, paintings, candles, baskets, crafts, books, movies, electronics, tvs, computers, keyboards, etc, etc, etc.....

Please pass the word on to any Oklahomans in the area!! :)   Also please be in prayer for an amazing turnout and that the Lord would continue to provide for us financially!  Thank you all!!!!

WHEN:  July 15, 16, & 17th  (Thurs, Fri, & Sat) ~  8am - 4pm

WHERE:  6312 Westpark Drive  OKC, OK 73142

WHY:  To help us raise funds to bring Mina home!!

Now off to bed to get a few hours of shut eye before it's time to get back to work! Can't wait to have this baby home & all the hard work paid off! :)  Only 2 weeks till we leave!!! Horray!
