Good Morning Ladies and Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group!

Good Morning Ladies and Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group! November is National Adoption Month, so let's do what we can to promote adoption in our churches and communities. Start or join a support group. I love Amy's First Friday group, maybe we could talk a little bit today about the groups you are a part of or how to start one.

FOR SN WAITING PARENTS, I HAVE SEEN THE SHARED LIST RECENTLY AND IT IS CLOSE TO 90% BOYS. FOR THOSE OF YOU GOING SN, WOULD YOU CONSIDER A BOY? I THINK YOU COULD BE MATCHED FAIRLY QUICKLY.

Also, today is the kick-off of the Seventh Diamond Christmas Project. So, I will share some more information about that with everyone!
To see more about this organization, click here 'Three Angels Christian Relief'.



To learn more about our Christmas Project, click here 'Project Christmas Angel'

This project is being led by Cora at the First Christian Church of Titusville. I had the pleasure of talking with her husband who is definitely a southern gentleman. I don't think I have ever been called Ma'am so many times or talked to with such respect. He said, "God Bless You Ma'am" at least 3 times. I told him about our group and how we are mothers who are waiting for our children or raising our children who come from all over the world. These are very kind people who want to help these children and the project is pretty easy.

We purchase a 2 pound bag of rice and put into the bottom of a shoe box, then we also add a small gift for a child along with a letter or family photo.
We also include $10.00 for shipping, if you send $12.00, they will buy the rice for you and add it to your box so your shipping will be less, just make sure to send a note letting them know this is what you would like done.

We ship the boxes to Cora at the church and they coordinate the shipment to Haiti.

If you would like to participate, please e-mail me at timnkim@gmail.com and I will get the address to you to send your package. They will be sent to Florida. Our goal is 30 boxes.

THE CHATROOM IS NOW CLOSED...HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

Tyler is Trying Out for the Basketball Team...

Out of nowhere, Tyler decided to try out for his school basketball team. Now, I have never known of Tyler to ever play basketball, not even under the hoop in our driveway, so I was a little surprised. His Dad and I got everything together for him to try out (you need to attend a meeting and have a physical form filled out by your pediatrician).
Yesterday was his first night of try-outs and he felt pretty good about it. I was so relieved...I don't even know if he can dribble a ball. He's played tennis, hockey and soccer in the past but has never seemed to find his sport. Maybe this is it~
Tonight he has try-outs again, evidently there are several teams and everyone should make it. I so hope he makes it onto one of the teams. I am proud of him for stretching his limits and trying something new.

A first glimpse of The Seventh Diamond Christmas Project...


I have met a wonderful woman named Lena through 'No Place Like Home'. She volunteered with Three Angels Children's Relief and worked in one of the orphanages in Haiti. She is adopting two children from there. They have a program put together to increase their rice supply and provide a small gift for a child in one of the orphanages and I would like to help...I would like us to help.
On November 1st, I'll tell you what we can do.
