31 for 21: I Really Need Your Attention

In a few minutes I'll be getting everyone up for school, and my day will be insane. This is one of those days that every time you check your calendar there is something else on it. I won't be done until,a round ten tonight so I really thought this could not wait .

$2700.00, Two thousand seven hundred dollars.  What is this number? This is what the Abell's need to bring Olga home.  After all of the months of fund raising and praying and praying and working to bring their girl home, this is all they need.
I am seriously begging and pleading to anyone who still reads this blog to please, please donate.

Please give whatever you can. This is such a small amount. This is when 5, 10, or 20 dollars really does make a difference. 

I know I have a couple of new faces here so I'll fill you in. 
This is Beautiful Olga, she sits in an orphanage in Eastern Europe waiting for her family.  $2700.00 is keeping her apart from her family.Olga is very special to me too. I fell in love with her last November and became her prayer warrior. I've also become good friends with the Mom and Dad. I cannot sit silent and let a mere $2700.00 keep them from bringing her home.

I went to a Gala the other night which was  raising  funds for the arts. It was beautiful and necessary and I hope successful. At one point during the night a very handsome dancer took the stage to talk about the importance of the arts, and how we should do everything in our power to keep it alive. He spoke for no more than 10 - 15 minutes and raised to my ruff calculations over 20,000. People were writing checks from $100.00 to $5000.00 on the spot. I was thrilled to see the support but you must know what I was thinking. 
I, of course was thinking that all that money collected in just minutes could fully fund so many families.  I wish I could take the stage, being my blog, say a few words and collect $20.000. Olga is very important too. And we need to do every thing we can to keep her alive!

I know times are tough, trust me I flippin know!! My husband has been out of work for over a year. I don't even know how we make it through each month. But I also know that whatever we are able to give, we get back. I donate what I can whenever I can. And God always replaces it.
Please, give to The Abells. Please this child needs to come home! THEY are her family!!

Please, just this once listen to me. Trust God. Donate and wait. I promise that money will come back to you somehow. It happens every time  with us.  God sees what's in your heart and He knows what you can do. And He will definitely see that and bless you efforts. 
This is a life, a child's life  and $2700.00 is standing in the way of her happiness and her safety. We need to help.

Please visit Jenn's blog read her post , they need us!!! Olga needs us!!

Please trust God and please donate whatever you can!!!

Steph, I can't wait to finally meet you and give you a big hug. I have been in tears all morning. I woke up to $290 in donations and then as I went through my blog list & facebook I kept seeing our blog. So many sharing & praying & donating. I don't know if I will ever truly be able to show how much it means to us that people who don't know us help so much when our own family & friends don't. Thank YOU!!!!!!!!!! Your friendship is such a blessing and I look forward to the day Olga & Em can meet :) We only need $2410 now :) We're gonna get to our girl. God is SOOOOOO good!
