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.

Orphanage Donation Drive

We are keeping ourselves busy right now by collecting donations that we will take to the Home of Hope Orphanage in Kigali, Rwanda. It is my understanding that there is a definate need there. When we traveled to Ethiopia to adopt our daughter we brought two huge suitcases full of donations for her care center as well as for the AHOPE orphanage. This is the best way for them to get the items that they need as shipping to Africa is obviously enormously expensive. So we are filling up bins again that we will disperse into our luggage when we travel to Rwanda. The following is a list of the items that we are collecting. If you have any of these things laying around that you would like to get to us just drop me a line.

Infant Motrin or Tylenol /Children's Motrin or Tylenol
Children's Cough Medicine
Antibacterial Cream
