Happy Birthday!

Today, a beautiful little boy celebrates his 5 month birthday in an orphanage in Addis Ababa. No one sings him happy birthday, recognizes the milestones he has met, takes a picture of him, or marked his growth and weight to remind them of this day. This little boy has a family waiting for him. But an estimate 146,999,999 more do not. In celebration of his life, and the impact he's had on ours, we are promoting 147 million. 147 million is an organization who wants to help as many people as possible to see the 147 million orphans worldwide as their brothers and sisters in Christ. Support the needs of an orphan by purchasing on of these stellar, cute shirts by clicking the link below. Happy birthday, "Baby Opia"! All our love and wishes to you on your birthday!

    I have looked at every single airline under the sun--it would be good to bounce ideas off of someone else! Most of the rates I've seen are for around $2000 per ticket. This includes the rates Susan Parr sent me.

    Looking forward to "talking" with you :)
