Last Minute Things......


There are so many things I should be doing, but thought I would take a minute and check in....

Looks like Kerry and his Dad will have the opportunity to visit with Amanda at Starfish Foster Home. Daleea is taking monetary donations for Kerry and his Dad to take to her. I am so excited about this. I read her blog daily. I can't imagine what it would be like to visit the babies and help out for a day. What fun!! This should happen around the 28 or 29 of September. I am hoping Grace will enjoy the visit also. It might do her some good to see other kids and interact. I will add a pay pal button if anyone wants to donate in the short amount of time we have left, all the money will go to Starfish.

We are waiting on an update on Grace. I would love to get a current picture or measurements. I don't think this will happen and it is only four more days until Kerry will hold her in his arms anyway.

Wow, is that possible?? Only four more days. It seems like she will be here in no time at all. I pray that the transition goes well and she adjusts ok. Her whole world will be turned upside down within a matter of days, not to mention that of her foster mama. I feel for her, it will be hard to lose a baby you have cared for. We will be able to send updates regularly to her foster family through the organization that sponsors her though. I am not sure if that will make the loss easier or harder??
Almost forgot, we have a travel website, you can visit here.
