From Minute To Minute

Oh how a few hours can change your day, your thoughts, your prayers. The $8000.00 grant for the older girls is gone. Angelina got it! Good for you sweet pea!

Brigita still waits, but with hope...

And Lera still waits, with a family, but still so far away from them.

Remember the momentum we all had last year. Remember all the posts and prayers and pleading. What happened? Why did we stop once Lera got a family? Was it that we were all in such a tither when she kept losing family after family, that when we new she was''safe" we all just breathe a sigh of relief?

I was in a different place last year. The thought of fund raising for someone never entered my mind.

What a difference a year can make. But unfortunately it has been another year that Lera has been waiting. I have a very uneasy feeling about that. A feeling that I didn't do all I could do.

Lera was transferred to an institution. She should be home by now. My heart bottomed out when I heard that. She has a family yet she was transferred.

I feel like the song that is playing right now. Did I sit back and wait for someone to do what God has called me to do?
If I did, then I apologize. I apologize to Lera and to the Higbie Family. We are a family out here. A family that pulls each other along, shares the load and sees each other through, all the way!

Please show your support to Lera and her family. Because of some incredibly beautiful and generous people an amazing fund raiser is happening. Let's take care of Lera, and get her home!

We get complacent and think others are doing it so we don't have to. We can't stop advocating for these kids. We can't stop help with fundraising. We need to look around and see what we can give up. That's what it's really all about...are we willing to give up that extra coffee, that extra night out, that restaurant meal. It can be done...we can do something. I pray these kids get their funding. Hugs and love

Thank you my friend for doing everything you are doing for these beautiful helpless children. I so agree with you...we are a family here and we need to help each other. I think we all got a little complacent once we knew that Lera had a family, we just took it for granted that yes now she will be home, that now she's safe. But these children are not safe...till they are literally safe and that means at home.

I have donated and Facebooked about Lera, I just hope and pray we can motivate enough people to help her get home. Remember nothing is impossible.
