2 Weeks And Counting!!!!!!

We leave to meet our little man in just two weeks!!!!!  AHHHH!!!!  We are so excited and have SO MUCH TO DO!!!!  So many of you have asked if there is anything you can do to help.  Here is a list of things we are looking to donate.  Additionally if anyone local has a luggage scale and/or adapters.  We would LOVE to borrow those things!  We also have the option to buy and donate things like formula for the Transition Home while in ET.  If you would like to send a monetary donation through paypal or a check we would be happy to take that with us and buy formula while there.  If you believe you can donate any of these items please feel free to drop them off or shoot me an email telling me what you have/will get (shandevol@yahoo.com)

There are several items that the transition home is in need of for the older children• Musical instruments
• Athletic clothing and shoes for soccer
• Christian videos or DVDs
• Swimsuits for boys and girls

Orphanage and Transitional Home General Donation Needs: o Puzzles for young children
o Toy cars and trucks appropriate for toddler aged children
o Diaper rash ointment (A+D preferred)
o Children’s clothing (new or slightly used); Boys and Girls; sizes 0-8 years. Clothing needs include day clothes (especially pants), pajamas, underwear, and shoes.

Additionally we will, hopefully have the opportunity to visit the one or two orphanages.  We would love to take 75 or so ziploc bags full of goodies for  the kids.  These would be filled with things like blow up beach balls, bouncy balls, little toys/games, crayons, bubbles etc (think oriental trading type things NO CANDY).  Sadly we just don't have the time or the resources to put this together right now.  HOWEVER, if someone would like to take this on as a project in the next week and get these things to us by next weekend we would LOVE to take it over!
*Update: We have someone willing to buy the things to go in the bags, however, shipping to get them here in time is $30 (if we order ASAP).  So if anyone is willing to chip in the shipping amount then we can take these for the kids!  Let me know if you would like to do this!
