We witness a miracle each time a child enters a life. But those who must make their journey home across time and miles, growing in the hearts of those waiting to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny. And placed among us by God's own hands.

Miraculous Monday

Not feeling so miraculous but we will see, perhaps some news this week? In the meantime here is my organization for today. Everyone has heard of Heifer International right? Well did you know that you can search a map on their website to learn what specific projects they have going in each country and then if you want to specifically donate to that project you just indicate the project number on the memo line of you check. It was a little hard to get the cursor exactly on Rwanda but yes Heifer International has a large economic development project underway in Rwanda ton help girl headed families and female genocide survivors who were raped and infected with HIV/AIDS. There is also a large project in Ethiopia to assist with the development of a existing Environmental Development Association. To check it out go to http://www.heifer.org/ and click on "Our Work" and then "Our Projects". We recently bought a flock of chickens for the Rwanda project for my mother-in-law for her birthday. Hmm who has a birthday coming up next so we can donate to the Ethiopia project? I have found that gifts in honor of someone make much better presents then trying to guess at something that they really don't need.

Heifer beneficiary, Channel, age 6 years, daughter of Frida, posed with "Superbness". Frida, 33 years old, is the mother and beneficiary of a cow she named, "Superbness". A Jersey that was placed in her family on February 12, 2007, the cow produces 14 liters of milk per day. The benefits of this yield cannot be underestimated as Frida is the mother and primary caregiver to 12 children (5 are biological, 7 are orphans of HIV/AIDS relatives of hers).
