This is only a portion of what Braeden's teacher donated to us for Davids.  We are so THRILLED!  This is such a BLESSING!  We only need PJs, underwear, socks, shoes, and a piece of luggage still.  Sounds like a lot, but having all these clothes and the swimsuits someone else donated, is amazing!  Next Monday Olivia and I go to her three month Dr. appt and will stop at our favorite thrift store on the way home.  I'm hoping to find PJs and luggage there! :)

Davids has official travel dates now of June 25- August 1.  Can't wait to meet him and spend time with him!!!

*** Update *** A great friend and Braeden's godmother just texted me that she has luggage to donate for Davids!!!  What a terrific blessing!!!

question do you have to send the luggage with clothes in it to davids before he gets here? Or does he wait to get here before he gets the stuff. If that is the case of waiting tell he gets to you i dont understand the luggage part but if you send it to him that would make sense of the luggage.

Hi! I guess they literally come with the clothes on their back? This is new to me, but in our manual we're told to provide clothes, a piece of luggage to go back with, a good school backpack as a carry on to go back with, and a few small toys/personal items.

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
