Pay It Forward

Baby A Shower

Ok guys, I want you to think back on a time in your life when someone gifted you in an amazing way. Could be financially, could be emotionally, could just be a kind word, or it could be that they were such an impact in your life that you vowed to A- never forget them, and B- pay it forward.

Now is that time.

See that button above? That button represents one less orphan in Uganda. That button holds the key to his forever family. Mothers & Fathers, think of your own children now. If they were lonely and crying out for you and ALL you had to do was click this button and donate a few dollars in an effort to free them, would you do it?

I know I would.

This is the story of my blog friend, the Farmer's Wife. I have never met her and I kinda stalk her a little bit, but in a friendly awe-inspiring way, like, I'm not creepy AT ALL. Since we have mutual friends, both have hearts for Ugandan orphans (actually, ALL orphans for that matter), and are both planning trips to Uganda in September, I can't help but feel a sisterhood with her. Plus, she also has great hair and an ADORABLE family, so it's like we're practically TWINS. *winking smiley face with a tongue sticking out* (Confession: I don't actually know how to use emoticons)

Anyway, Lara (TFW) announced this AM that they have a court date for Sept. 27. That means that airline tickets need to be purchased, like ASAP. That means that WE need to help HER do this. But wait! THERE'S MORE!


Confession #2: I actually just copied and pasted the remainder of this from Shelly, who hijacked Lara's site. I don't think they'll mind at all.
