147 Million Orphans Blog
how many hits?
I havent blogged lately because I have been swamped getting all of our new gear for the fall out! Gwen is all about the admin of 147 and I do the designing, ordering, printing, etc... We have a lot of new products this fall. We are SO excited! We were in "crunch mode" because we leave for Texas next wednesday, Sept 29 for the Together for Adoption Conference. (there is STILL room if you want to go and haven't registered) We will be stopping at my sweet friend Meredith Messick's house in Dallas for a "purchase with a purpose party!" If any of you are in the Dallas area OR Austin...we would LOVE for you to come by and see our new stuff. If you want info on either of these, just email us at twomoms13kids@gmail .com.
Yesterday I went to Vanderbilt for Josie Love's routine infectious disease doctors visit. Every step through that hospital people call out "hey Josie Love!" It is the FUNNIEST thing! As she stomps through the long halls, she smiles ear to ear, eyes squinted closed (have NO idea how the child sees a thing...) collecting lollipops, hugs, and waving, saying "see ya later!" I am going to video it sometime just so that you guys can experience it! I couldn't help but to think "thank you Lord for this...to think that I MIGHT have missed it?!?"
The pediatric eye specialist examined her eyes last week. While they are not opened totally, they are now opened enough so that her vision is not affected. She is pleased with the healing, and will assess her again in a year. If they have not opened up more by the time to start kindergarten, she will do another surgery and open them some more.
AND, we started gymnastics! Gwen and I have our on class with our youngest ones! how funny is that? They decided with a hearing impaired child, a child with blown up saline pouches in her scalp, Hiv+ and a WILD three year old (Caleb) that they might need to have just a little extra attention....hahhaahhha. So, we have our own class. IT IS WONDERFUL! Gwen and I just sit and laugh. we do not have to worry if they cut line, jump on the trampoline out of turn, disrupt so that learning is or if they have runny noses...we're just glad that they are getting some energy out!
That's all for now...I will update you on the conference asap!
Til they are all fed,
- I am a lover of Jesus. I have the most fabulous husband that anyone woman could ask for. The Lord has blessed us with 7 beautiful children. I started this blog so that friends and family could follow our trip to Uganda to visit Katie Davis. I have decided to keep blogging to help bring orphan awareness to the world around me.
