Now Meet Darya & Nadine

Since reading about Darya and Nadine yesterday, I can't keep my mind off of them. Both girls are healthy other than Down Syndrome and deserve a rich and full life.


If you wish to help them find their forever home, go to this blog.

Meet the Hollis Family

Chappy, my sister's co-worker, & Melanie Hollis
Their children:
Caleb (biological,14); Lydia (biological, 11); Natalie (adopted from Russia and has Fetal Alchohol Syndrome, 11); Hope (biological, has Down Syndrome); Charlie (adopted, 1 year old, and has Down Syndrome)

The Hollis Family is nothing short of AMAZING!! Take a look at their blog and join in my amazement. They have a passion to adopt the kids that aren't "perfect" in most of the world's eyes, particularly those with Down Syndrome.

Pay special attention to this post, but grab a tissue first. They are currently trying to raise $20k to adopt 2 more Down Syndrome kiddos from Reece's Rainbow. These kids will be transferred out of their current orphanage to another at the age of 4 where they will be left in a crib with only enough food to survive. Many do not!

If you'd like to join in on their fundraising efforts, please let me know. I will give you their address.

For those of you that don't follow along on Hannah's site, life seems to pass us by at a million miles per minute.

Anyhoo, here's Hannah and Austin as Frankenstein and his bride on Halloween.
