I need your help ... Suzanne's 40th birthday is next Wednesday and what do you get a sister, who always takes care of everyone else and has a giving heart ?????  Well, God woke me at 3:30 in the morning with this idea and I am GIDDY about it !!!

Suzanne's friend (and mine too of course) Tosha is adopting a  4 month old little girl that we just found out about 2 weeks ago in Uganda ... Tosha is a school teacher and I so get how hard it is to raise funds for an adoption on a teacher's salary much less on a really quick time frame.  SO HERE IS MY SUPER BIG, SUPER COOL, SUPER FANTABULOUS IDEA ...

To honor Suzanne on her big 40 for all that she does for others and how she encourages so many with her blog, I am asking for anyone that has ever been touched by her or her story to donate on the button above that says BRING ABIGAIL HOME ... $1, $2, or $5 (or whatever) ... NO AMOUNT IS TO SMALL ...

If you would rather write a check then send it to - 147/ Gwen Oatsvall P.O.Box 2929, Brentwood, TN 37024 ... (makes check payable to : DREAM OF A BETTER WORLD )

Suzanne has been working hard this last week to help Tosha raise the funds and 147 is doing our part, but I would love to tell her next week that we have raised enough to cover it !!!! SUZANNE WOULD BE OVER THE MOON EXCITED !!!

I am doing my best to keep this a secret ... Suzanne has been given strict instructions to not read my blog till next Wednesday so don't spill the DEAL !!!

We need $9000 .... Let's get rolling and help me spread the word !!!!

I LOVE that this would make her more excited than anything else!!! How Loving!!! Glad to be a part of bringing that baby home!! Praise God!!
Oh, and I can't tell you how many people, my husband especially, we come across who express a desire to adopt (teachers, nurses, etc.), but think it's impossible due to the cost. If it's God's will, He CAN make it happen, but we have to be willing to take that first step...and maybe the second and third.
