Happy New Year

Wanted to share a couple of sweet praises with y'all!

First - ANYA has a family commited to adopt her!  Isn't that exciting?!  (And no it is not us in case you were wondering.)  Its been almost a year since we first advocated for Anya with a giveaway last January.  Praying for a family to go get this precious little girl.  God has answered this prayer!  Her Mom is a sweet gal who is so excited about her!  I'm excited that I get to walk with this family as they go to get her.  I am honored to continue praying for Anya and to add her new family to my prayer list.  When they are able to go public with this news - and if they have a blog - I will surely share it!

Second - The Angel Tree ended yesterday.  This is a huge fundraiser for the children on Reece's Rainbow.  The goal this year was to raise at least $1000 for each child.  Each child had someone working to raise funds - but it isn't an easy thing to do!  As of the morning of December 31st, there were still many that were not close to their goal.

People continued to pray and to donate as volunteers added in the monies up until midnight.  Want to know the final result?

EVERY child is has met the goal!  Is that a sweet answer to prayer or what?!  Here is the Angel Tree if you want to peek for yourself.  (I'm not sure how much longer it will be up though!)

There is still more work to be done, but as always, it is God working through us.  To Him be the glory!  Praying that this new year sees the grants rising so that more of these sweet children will be home by next Christmas!  Will you join me in praying that more children will find families?

I'll post more later on our New Year's Eve activities.  I hope the start to your year is a fun one!
