Jailynn's Prayer

I have a wonderful friend that is having a fundraiser for our family and I want to invite you to look at her blog she made for Jailynn. I am deeply touched by her efforts to help and amazed at her kindness. She adopted her daughter last year and Jordyn remembered helping the Nannies take care of her. The red thread has woven an amazing and beautiful connection and friendship.

I hope that you will visit her blog:

I am so happy to be doing this fundraiser for Jailynn. It just so happens that my daughter, Jordyn and Jailynn are all from the same orphanage. Jordyn would often help the Nannies with the little ones and one of those babies was Kira, my daughter. So it is with joy and hope that I return this favor of love and caring, to help Jailynn find her way to her waiting family and sister.

Hey Melanie, I've checked out your friend's site, that is so awesome of her to do this for your sweet Jailynn.
The kids and I had hoped you were going to have a drawing for a video game system or something too, I know you had mentioned it.
Have you received TA yet?? Keep us posted.
Love ya,
Sheri (Leilah Di's Mommy)

Hi! I am glad you are visiting my blog! Please sign my guestbook or leave me a comment. It will mean so much to me, Jordyn and Jailynn!

The rest of our family

In case anyone was curious: Here are som pictures of my oldest son, Joey and his family. Joey and Kym have three children: my beloved grandbabies: Hayden 4yrs old, Noah 22 months old, and Phoenix 9 months old. We have been helping Joey and Kym get on their feet and they have been living with us since December. They are now able to get their own place and will move out in April. I will miss them and miss the babies. I will just have to babysit!

God Is Awesome!

We have also recieved generous donations from wonderful people through this website and through Jailynn's Prayer. So far, the total fundraising has reached a total of $4000!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank You! Thank you to everyone for helping us to bring Jailynn home! We are hoping to travel sometime this month and still need to raise money. I know that God is providing for our family through the unselfish and generous giving from special and wonderful people like you!
