A chance to do good

I know that many of you read Patrice's blog and through that, you have gotten to know our great-nephew, Jonah. Jonah has Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), and while until two years ago I didn't know what it was, today not an hour goes by that I don't think about it.

Patrice has reached out to tell us about two young orphaned boys with EB in Eastern Europe. They are brothers, now separated for two years because they are in different orphanages, who are waiting on their family to come and get them. Karrie and Donnie Cannell are in the process of adopting them. They will be traveling within a month, and they still don't have the funds they need to travel.
Because of adopting in two different regions, the length of their stay, and the increased travel expenses (the boys are 400 miles apart), they still have $25,000 to $35,000 to raise before they can go.

If you have time and haven't already done so, please read the post Patrice wrote about these two sweet boys. When I think about my boys being separated by hundreds of miles -- and sick -- it makes me ill. I want to do anything I can to bring these brothers back together and unite them with their new, loving family.

Please pray that God will move mountains to make that happen, and if you feel led to help financially, you can donate securely via PayPal. Thank you so much!
