Hope

Posted on

Hope is beautiful.

image

Hope has so much potential.

She is 7 years old.

7 years old and just 10 pounds! 

She has the chance become part of a loving family, the Horton’s.

She will be a daughter for the first time.

She will be a sister for the first time.

I’d like to introduce one of Hopes new sisters, Sophia. 

image

Sophia is from the same orphanage that Hope is in. 

You see, when Sophia was adopted by the Horton’s at age 4, she weighed just 10 pounds. 

image

I met this angel shortly after she came home. She fit in an infant car seat and looked like a baby.  This, from years of neglect.

But living with this amazing family, little fragile Sophia became a happy 26 pound 6 year old! 

Tell me that’s not astounding.

Tell me that’s not remarkable.

Tell me Hope hasn’t got the same chance to be a chubby, smiley, happy kid. 

The proof is right in front of your eyes with Sophia’s transformation.  

I know this family, the Horton’s.  They are truly amazing people.  Right now they are trying to expedite Hope’s adoption due to her fragile condition.  It is so much more dire than imagined.  But with that, comes more need, more fees and a totally different timeline.  But despite these unforeseen hardships, they don’t want to let Hope down, they want to go get their daughter.

Please go here to help  any one of three different amazing causes, the Horton’s included, or donate a little to each of them!  Oh, and when you donate, you’ll be entered to win some money and some bling!  

Let’s  band together and do something great today!

Hope and the Horton family thanks you!

Joshua

Posted on

I’d like to introduce you to an amazing kid.

He is 8.

I am told he is super sweet.

He is bright.

He wants to go to school.

He wants to learn to read and write.

Oh, and he loves Minions!  Yes, the little yellow guys.

But he gets teased…  Why?

Because of his face.

image

He has such a beautiful face though, doesn’t he?

However it isn’t only about the teasing.  For Joshua the protrusion on his face is life threatening.

Thankfully, Maya’s Hope has stepped in and offered to help raise funds for his surgery.  In the Philippines, you have to prove you can pay before they will treat you.

Joshua needs Maya’s Hope, and Maya’s Hope needs YOU!

Please go here to help one of three different amazing causes or donate a little to each of them!  Oh, and when you donate, you’ll be entered to win some money and some bling!

Let’s  band together and do something great today!

Thank you!

Little Princess Chesca

Posted on

I know many have read about the fundraiser that I’m currently running.

One special reason I am doing this fundraiser…  6 year old Chesca.

image

Look at this beautiful girl! She is so special, and from what I’m told, quite spunky. She loves princesses and dolls just like any other 6 year old girl. But sweet Chesca has something else about her…

She has stage 4 Ewing’s Sarcoma and we recently discovered that she has no further options.  The cancer has spread and chemo is no longer possible.

image

Maya’s Hope funds her care, and has been for quite some time.
This tough little angel has been through so much in her short life.  She has been an absolute inspiration for all who follow her journey… Being positively charming and strong through multiple rounds of chemo, pokes and tests, all while the cancer and her enlarged arm is causing intense pain. 

image

Now the focus is on giving little Chesca the most comfortable life possible for however long we still have her.  You see, in the Philippines, you must prove you can pay or you cannot receive medical care.  Without your help, her treatment and pain management will not be possible. And without medication, she is in unimaginable pain.
Please consider donating and helping a worthy cause. 
If you want to help Chesca and some other great kids, and maybe win yourself a nice prize, go here to learn more.
