Book for Hanna, update!


Book sales for the book I put together to help Children's Heaven have netted over $1200 for Hanna's health care. I'm thrilled. Shouting out a huge THANK YOU to Ethiopian Orphan Relief for sponsoring this fundraiser! And, sending love and appreciation to all the adoptive families and friends who purchased a book. I hope you get some good cuddle time with your children while you read and look at the photos together.

Love the book! It is really, really beautiful, thank you. We are leaving on Sunday to go get our little boy, I can't wait to share the book with him. We will also get to visit Hanna, which I am really looking forward to. I hope that we will get to know each other through these adventures.

Thank you again for the book. It is a great idea, and we love it.

Max loves this book and keeps taking it off the coffee table and putting it in his room. He loves looking at the pictures and knowing that it is Ethiopia that he is looking at. He has such a sense of pride at this young age and this amazing photojournal helps to bolster that. Thank you for doing this and sharing it with the rest of us, and our children.

Well, now I might have to go and buy that book. I just got a letter in the mail yesterday from the girl I have started sponsoring at Children's Heaven and I was so excited. I found out about Hanna and her organization from your blog, so thanks for that!

Oh, I'm so, SO glad to hear that you found her here. And, I'm thrilled you are helping one of the girls. How exciting!! How old is she? I'm going to Ethiopia in a few months, let me know if you want me to take her a gift from you. My email is hmcine at yahoo dot com.
