Here is Lydia's interview.....she did GREAT!!
We want to thank all 300+ individuals who have participated in the "Darya Project". From Mr. Tim's Candy Canes to all those who brought their cars through the car wash.....from Ondrea's photo shoot to all those who purchased the bake sale goodies.....from the Poppy Dip Dress sale to Stephanie's dirt and lace design donation....from the 147 million orphan tshirt contribution to the free haircuts offered by Angie at Great Clips.....from almost every state in our great country....from several who are serving in our armed forces.....and from four countries abroad.....each of you are a part of this Thanksgiving Miracle.
Donations have still been coming in this morning, so Mr. Tim, the Candy Cane Maker, wants to contribute his handmade candy canes to be put in your yard to commemorate Darya's Thanksgiving Miracle for the next 10 donations of $25.00 or more who live in our area (They are too big and too heavy to ship--sorry). You can pick them up at our house.
We have already raised money for Darya, and now, all additional gifts will go to the Hook family for their adoption of a child with Down Syndrome through Reece's Rainbow. Just like the fishes and the loaves, God multiplies, and His arms are far reaching beyond our comprehension. I believe in His excitement in seeing all of the generous giving, God was anxious to provide for another family's adoption too. Through you.
So today, in an orphanage far away, a little girl with big brown eyes who is never spoken to....never held....will get a visitor. The visitor will walk to the lonely crib that is tucked in a corner and say: "Darya, your family is coming to get you real soon."
Praise God from whom ALL blessings flow!!!
