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

Good Morning Everyone and Welcome to the Sat Chat! I would like to say CONGRATULATIONS! to Donna and Joe for the referral for beautiful Lauren Elizabeth. I'm sure that most of you know and have seen her photos, but if not, you can visit her blog 'Waiting for Lauren Elizabeth'.Want a Wii for Christmas?? Kris from 'Tell Her This' is raising funds to bring home her daughter. Head on over to her site and register to win! She also has a sidebar graphic, so let me know if you want the code so you can help her out and display it on your blog.

Lastly, I have only had one person sign up for Project Christmas Angel to send a bag of rice and a toy to a child in the Three Angels Orphanage in Haiti. I was so excited about this project and was hoping we could send 30 boxes. If anyone else is interested in helping, please leave a comment or e-mail me at

Two Projects that Need Your Help...

Three Angels Children's Relief has a Christmas Project running and so far I haven't had anyone volunteer to join in. Participants will be sending a shoe box with a 2 pound bag of rice in the bottom, a small gift for a child and ten dollars to help cover the postage to Haiti, along with any letters or photos we would like to include. The boxes will need to shipped to a church in Tennessee where they will be forwarded on to the Three Angels orphanage in Haiti. This is really a wonderful project that we will be working on in conjunction with a church in TN. Please leave a comment and let me know if you would be willing to participate. There is a link on the top of my sidebar that takes you to a form that explains everything.

The One Child At A Time Auction that was created by Daleea needs donations. I know that Amanda has 2 new babies right now as well as one infant in the hospital and a new child who she just left with to seek medical care. She is in a unique position to be able to have access to these children who need care and we are in a unique position to be able to help. Please look through your closets and see if you have anything you could donate, or pull out your sewing machine and see what fabulous creation you can make. I have received several letters and e-mails from the Starfish Board of Directors acknowledging what you ladies do to help this cause and these children. They are so grateful for your hard work and dedication.

Lastly, get out there and vote!!

Special Needs....China

I talked about this a little bit on the Sat Chat and I was able to see a new copy of the shared list yesterday. If you have decided to pursue a special needs adoption from China, re-think whether or not you would like to bring a son or daughter home. The vast majority of the children on the list right now are boys. I think that you could be matched much sooner if you let your social worker know that you would like a boy or would consider either a boy or a girl.
