“Children are a gift from God.” Psalm 127:3

remember this post?

now's your chance....

In 2006, All God’s Children International opened their arms to Ethiopia’s children through adoption and orphan care programs. Their facility, Hannah’s Hope, is home to over 50 children in Ethiopia. Located in Addis Ababa, the capital city, Hannah’s Hope is a transitional home meant to provide love, shelter, safety, and medical care to orphans waiting to be placed with their forever families.

Josh and Kristi Ausbrooks will travel to Ethiopia to bring their son Eli home soon. Eli has lived at Hannah’s Hope since he was born. When they travel, they will take as many items for the children at the home as possible. Please help us bless the children there.

We are having a “shower” for Hannah’s Hope on Monday, Jan 26 at 6:30 in the fellowship hall of FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH in Loogootee for all of the ladies. Light refreshments will be provided. More information will be shared about Ethiopia and the adoption journey.

Items needed include:

· Diapers of all sizes, particularly newborn

· Sealed packages of wipes

· Desitin

· Formula

§ For ages 0-12 months

§ Powder only

§ Similac preferred, but any accepted

§ Dairy, vegetable, or soy based

§ Any size, even samples

Gifts do not need to be wrapped. You are also welcome to give monetary donations, and the Ausbrooks family will purchase needed items.

I know I have been letting you know about lots of needs on this blog, but I want to encourage you. My readers are awesome and they know how to give, because Christ has so faithfully given to them. I love you all, and even if you can just spread the word if you live in the Loogootee area, it is deeply appreciated!

Check out the Ausbrooks Family and their adoption journey...

Eli is so cute I may have to make a special trip to Loogootee just to babysit for him sometime. His little brown eyes would melt your heart!
thanks, you guys are beautiful.
