Copied from the blog of Tracie Loux:


American Express is giving away a 2.5 million dollar gift to different organizations who are doing charitable work, and who also get enough nominations to qualify to be chosen for this project. (1.5 MIL will be given to the top nomination and an additional 1 MIL will be split between three other worthy organizations). We need 700 more votes to help qualify a very important organization called Reece's Rainbow. They are doing a tremendous job of helping orphaned Down Syndrome children through their adoption agency. This is the agency that where Derek and Renee are adopting Misha. If Reeces Rainbow were to win this gift, this would enable them to adopt out almost all of the waiting DS children with full grants!

You DO NOT have to own an American Express card to vote. Just sign in as a guest and remember to vote for Reece's Rainbow.
It will only take 1 to 2 minutes of your time and your vote could make it possible for an orphan to be placed in a forever family. Thanks so much for considering this wonderful opportunity to make a difference in the life of an orphan.

Please log on to THIS SITE to vote!

Shopping for Interns

Havah looks a little concerned, but really she was having the time of her life being packed in with a bunch of groceries. We left with three full pallets and three full carts. We had to go back the next day to get more. We will have to go back tomorrow...and the next day too.

Be There or Be Square

Well...if you can't be then you can give...

My dear friends are working on bringing home their little one. It is going to be one great party!! I can't wait to celebrate with them!!
Has it really been three weeks?

We are in Washington DC for another week. We've been in the area for one week already. The first few days were spent in Annapolis with our new wonderful friends. Now we're staying in Capital Hill making more food than I've ever seen in my entire life! The Henry's and Gram are making food for the Awakening Teen Interns, TheCall Staff, and the onething inters. Yikes... that's a lot of people.

I'll post pictures as soon as I can.
