She wants her brother home NOW!

Most of you who read my blog have been touched personally by adoption. As you know, adopting a baby or a child can be a blessing to everyone...including friends of the family. One of my friends and Paige's friend is anxiously awaiting word to bring home their SWEET son and brother from Vietnam. When they receive word that they can travel, they have to get plane tickets and make arrangements like YESTERDAY!!! Please head over to Lala's site and "CHIP IN" and help them raise the funds to bring sweet Coby home! Also, if you have a need or a want for some DARLING Matilda Jane clothes in sizes 8, 10 and 12, head on over to ebay to see my listings. All of the proceeds from these sells will go to help bring Coby home! The link to all listings is:

Go to Laura's site and chip in!!!!

Annslee is saying, "We're coming COBY!!!"

Thank you so much!!! You are such a sweetie and I am truly blessed to have you as a friend...oh, and Annslee to have Paige as a "big sister"

You are such a sweet friend, Missy. So giving and compassionate.

Hugs! Hope you had a great week. And maybe a long weekend- Monday off???

Oh what a great friend you are!! I already chipped in (I think, it feels like a long time ago now) and even though the clothes would fit Em, they are already items similar to what she already has (bummer).

Hope you have had a wonderful week:)

I just love this picture of Annslee and Paige. How great of you to sell Paige's MJ clothes to help Laura and her family. I can't wait to stop over to L&D and see that Coby is coming home!!!

Have a great weekend, Missy!

What a lovely gesture...I wish you much success...so touching!!!

I also just wanted to say I LOVE your re-design...and when I popped in this afternoon, it was to the tune of At Last by Etta James...which was the first dance Jim and I danced to at our wedding reception...obviously a favorite..made me all gushy just thinking about it.... :-)

What a blessing that you have such a sweet sweet friendship with this family now Missy. You are both special people. I can't wait for them to get the call and I am praying that the money comes pouring in!

Oh Missy, that is so sweet!
I am also anxiously awaiting Coby's arrival home - beautiful Annslee is gonna ROCK as a big sis!
You guys are so lucky to live close to each other...but I'll (hopefully) be in your fine state next summer and we can ALL meet face to face!
