$405 & Happier Than Ever!

Dear Mick,

I haven't wrote you in a while.  I've wrote on the blog, but not to you.   That certainly doesn't mean I haven't thought of you.  There honestly hasn't been a day where you haven't been on my mind MOST of the day.  I just keep thinking about you, constantly.  I think about what you're doing, if you are hungry, if you are happy or sad.  If anyone has taken the time out of their day to just sit and hold you in their arms and tell you how incredibly special and wonderful you are.  As I write this I tear up just thinking of anyone lucky enough to have a chance to do just that to you.   Hold you and love you.  It's something that I've wanted since I put my eyes on your precious face.    Mick baby, I love you as much as someone could love someone.  I would do anything for you.  I would give up anything just to see you have forever family that could give you everything you've always deserved.  
You don't know this, because I doubt anyone has ever told you, but sweetie you are so beautiful.  You are worth so much more than you've ever known.  You have a purpose that only you can fulfill.   You're gonna change someones life.  I know this because you have changed mine so much.   I never knew I could love someone I've never met this much.   You have a piece of my heart and I dream of the day I will be able to carry you in my arms and give you the hug and kisses you've never had, but always deserved.
I don't know where your mommy is, and I don't know how she was ever able to give you away, but I wish I could talk to her for just a few brief moments.  I want to tell her thank you.  I want to tell her thank you for giving you the chance to have someone wonderful find you, instead of choosing to abort you like millions of other children are/have been.   I know your life is nothing wonderful, but this led you to me and I will stay faithfully committed to you until the day your family has set foot on American soil with you in their arms.
I'm so grateful that I have this chance to help you.

Look at me, I got completely off track.  (If you've read past letters you already know I ramble off so easily, ha ha)  My main reason for getting online and writing a letter to you was to tell you that, baby you are currently at $405 in Angel Tree!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ahhhh!!!!  I couldn't even believe my eyes when I saw the amount!  And I said it out loud and I still couldn't believe it!   Honestly, writing this I am still in shock!  This is the most incredible thing!  You're getting so CLOSE to $500 which is halfway there!!

It's 18 days until Christmas and I'm trusting in God to send us exactly what you need.
He is an AWESOME and ALMIGHTY God and he has NEVER failed me.  He is faithful and I will continue to pray for you, your safety and health and that He's wrapping his unfailing arms around you everyday, comforting you in all your times of need.  

I haven't stopped smiling since I saw the amount on your Reece's Rainbow page!  Not much could make me feel happier.  UNLESS, you found a forever family for Christmas!  If that happens I think I might seriously die of joyfulness!  No kidding!!

I love you sweet baby boy.  Keep your head held high, because God loves you and with His grace and love I will rescue you. <3

Thank you for reading this letter to Mick, one day I will print these letters out and send them to him when he's found his forever family.   If you would like to make a donation to his Angel Tree please visit the link below, we just need $95 MORE TIL WE REACH $500!! <3

Giving Today

Today is is Giving Tuesday after a difficult fundraising week I am trying my hardest to not fall into discouragement.   I know that God has already set the exact amount of money that I will raise for Mick this Angel Tree season.  And if $325 is that amount, I will be happy and overjoyed just to have that.  But knowing that I still have 22 days left to try my hardest makes me refuse to give up.

I have an app that allows me to look at different webcams across the world, and one early morning at 2 a.m. I stumbled across the webcam in Ukraine.  The country that "my" dearest little man Mick is located in.  And while it was pitch dark here in the US at that time, the sun was just rising there.   It was heartbreaking to watch.  The morning itself was beautiful.  Here I was getting ready to fall asleep in my warm and cozy bed.  Inside my comfy heated house.  I wondered about Mick.  There inside those orphanage doors his day just beginning. Another day stuck inside those walls, cold, dark and dreary. He knows no different though.  Sad, but true that his day of no fun, no love, no laughter, no enjoyment or pleasure of any kind is the definition of a  "normal" day for him.  He waits day in and day out for that moment when the nannies bring him a photograph of his future forever family.  He watches the only family he's ever known leave with their forever families. And still he wonders..where are his?  Where is the mother that scoops him up into her loving and welcoming arms, kissing his cheeks passionately? Where is the father that plays with him and makes him giggle?  Where are those wonderful people that are suppose to rescue him from that dreadful orphanage? He waits and wonders.  He may not understand it all fully, but I'm positive he feels a feeling of loneliness and sadness when he watches other children say goodbye to the place that no child should ever have to live in.   

On this giving Tuesday, I hope that you will consider making a donation of any amount into Mick's adoption grant/Angel Tree.   Go look through my blog and see ways you can get things free for donating.  There are many.  (

Here's the link to donate: 

My intention wasn't to make this a sad post, but when I discuss Mick living unloved in an orphanage there really isn't another title to put on the topic other than sad.  It makes me extremely sad to know that he will be alone this Christmas again. His 3rd Christmas, and never ever celebrated it.  It's unreal and heartbreaking.    

Thank you for reading this short little post. I appreciate it! And thank you so incredibly much for donating! I can't even find words to begin to say how grateful I am for all donations to him. :) 

Please comment if you donate! You don't have to, but I would love to hear from you.  I'd to personally thank you. <3 

Thank you so much.

40 People Donate $5 = $500 for Mick Before December!!!!!

Hey everyone!  I'm super pumped for this little event, and by little I hope it's a HUGE turn out!    Mick is currently at $306 in his Angel Tree account.   That's SO CLOSE to being half way there!  We just need $200 more to meet the half way mark!

And as you read in the title, the goal of this post is to reach $500 before December!  I know it's not much time at all, only 7 days as of right now.   BUT.  My God is a big God and if it's His will, we'll reach that goal!

I will already tell you, I don't have a giant gift to give you in return for helping, I can't really give you anything, but please continue reading......

Mick's Story..

Mick a 3 year old orphan with Down syndrome.  Sadly there really isn't much more to tell.  Other than he is located in eastern Europe and has never felt love before in his life.    It's all okay though, that's where you come in!  You change this story.  By donating a small donation of $5 or more, you'll be making a huge difference in Mick's life.  Because your donation goes into his adoption grant which will help his future forever family adopt him much faster and easier.  Adoptions can cost anywhere from $13,000-$45,000 a child.      Angel Tree is an extremely big event for people like me that advocate for orphans on all year long.  The goal of Angel Tree is to raise $1,000 before Christmas Day for the child you've committed to being an Angel Tree Warrior for.

My child is precious little Mick.    I've been his prayer warrior since May 2013.  He's stolen a piece of my heart and nothing would give me more joy than to see him with A) a forever family by next Christmas and B) have $500 in his Angel Tree.  

How can I help? 

click here to visit his official Reece's Rainbow profile, there you can make a donation of what amount you'd like to!   (Please comment onto this post and let me know you donated!  I would absolutely love to thank you.)

What do I do to help in another way? 

I need every single person that reads this post to share my facebook page or blog!!  Email it, tweet it, instagram it, I don't care, whatever works!   This will spread Mick's name everywhere and help his forever family find him faster!


Make you sure you are praying for Mick.  Being so far away from someone I love so much, yet have never met, is tough!  You can't take care of them, you can't send them presents so the only way I can help him psychically is to pray that God will provide and protect him.   Prayer is POWERFUL and God is listening.
God made Mick and knows his story from beginning to end.  His love NEVER fails.  EVER.   So please pray that God will guide his forever family to find him SOON. :)

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for helping Mick.  I really can't describe my appreciation through words to you.  Just the thought of one donation from you is bringing me on the verge of tears.    

Thank you....for giving an orphan a Christmas he'll hopefully one day know about. <3

$306 & Thankful..

Oh my goodness!  Here's a post I honestly wasn't sure that I would ever be writing!   But yet again, God has shown his never failing love and grace on both Mick and I.   This week we reached $306 for Angel Tree!!  I'm still in shock!  This is the best feeling in the world!  Everyday, I pray that if it's God's will that he'll do something big for Mick, something special and if today is the day, his forever family will find him.  Though today wasn't the day his forever family would find him, God did do something big!  We reached another goal!  $300!!!!   And just as I said in the $202 post, if this is all I raise for him, if this is all he's meant to have from Angel Tree, I will smile and praise God for this incredible blessing!  I will be thankful for all the amazingly generous people that have helped me reach this point for Mick.  Without kindhearted people that have a love for Mick, none of this would ever be possible.   I certainly couldn't have gotten this far on my own.  God provides.  He really does. SO many people have helped make this possible and I'm not even sure I will ever find the words to describe my gratefulness for each person.  <3 <3 <3

Let's try to reach $400 before December!  Go to and "LIKE" the page.  Then share a flyer going around.  My goal is to reach 100 shares, at least ;)   

                                                            (Flyer posted below)

I am excited to see what God has in store for Mick!  I have a feeling that this journey is only beginning! <3

What's Going On

If you follow me on Mick's Facebook page then you probably know I've been doing a good bit of fundraisers recently.   I'm not completely sure that my blogger followers know all of what I'm doing so I decided it would be a great idea to make a little update post. :) '

So here's a list of the fundraisers and events going on right now!  

                                  Handmade Owls For Mick

Click on the name to look at the pages about them :)

$202 and My Wish For You

Dear Mick,

Oh sweet baby boy! I have big news!  You officially have $202 in your Angel Tree account!  I'm overwhelmed with joy and thankfulness! The Lord has blessed you and me SO much! <3 
We have $800 to go, but honestly, I'm not worried about how we'll get there! God's shown himself to be all around these fundraisers for you and He's brought so many people to come and help you so willingly and selfless.  It's incredible.  If this is all I raise for you than I will still smile and praise The Lord! 

I fail at finding words to describe the way I feel.  I'm so glad and incredibly blessed that I have this opputinty to be your Angel Tree Warrior this year.

Of course I want to raise the $1.000 for your adoption grant! But most of all I want to find your forever family. I pray every single  day that God will guide your forever family to you.  

Sweetheart, your like a son to me. I love you more than most could imagine. (Like some peope reading this on my blog , they think I'm crazy and immature) 
You aren't "just a photo" hanging on my wall. You're a big part of me now. And just like many of the orphans I've helped before, you little man have changed me.  I've learned to never give up, always keep hope and faith in God, and to be more grateful for the things I have in life.   You've never just need a face amount the  147,000,000 orphans in the world.  You always have and always will hold a very special piece of my heart. And if it's God's will, one day I will be able to scoop you up into my arms and kiss those adorable chubby last.  
And maybe one day I will have the chance to read these letters to you. You'll quickly learn that someone loved you so much when you were trapped and unloved in the orphanage. 

$202 isn't were I give up.  I'm going to continue to work on the auction, selling handmade items, Angel tree FB covers and more!  Whatever it takes, I'll do it for you.  

You're precious to me Mick baby. Remember that always. <3

$200 Today Pie Challenge

I'm feeling courageous enough today to do a fun little challenge!  Mick currently has $130 in his Angel Tree. That's a huge blessing! I'm so grateful for every bit God's blessed me with.  
I want to reach $200 at least before midnight  so we're going to do a pie contest!  If we reach $200 or more before midnight I will have one or two of my 14 siblings shove a whipped creame pie in my face. I'll record it and post it on here of course, for all of you to see!  This should be a fun game!  If we reach $230 I'll put food coloring of your choice in the pie and it will more than likely dye my face! Haha! But it's ALL worth it to help Mick! :)    

To donate go to Mick's link below and donate there!

 Feel free to comment on this post or email/message me to let me know you've donated!  

Thank you and please share to help! 

Let's pray God will lead people to donate and we'll reach $200 +!!

Handmade Owls for Mick

Hello!  It's been too long since I posted.  And for good reasons.  I have been so busy fundraising and busy at home with my family and my precious new baby sister.   But I really haven't left Mick out!   Almost every ounce of my free time has went into making Facebook Covers for Reece's Rainoow | Angel Tree.   Which is absolutely wonderful because I currently have $130 raised for Mick.  Only $860 left! :)    And  if you're interested in getting one, check out my covers here.

My wonderful grandmother has blessed me with the donation of her time and talented work by making these lovely owls.     
Each owl will come with a little card with it's name and a personality paragraph to tell you a little bit more about them, :)  

Each one of these owls were handmade and there isn't one alike! 
My grandma (Grammy) made these for me to "sell" for donations for Mick.   I'm so grateful for all of her hard work!  These are seriously ADORABLE!  

For a $13 donation to my YouCaring account for Mick  you'll get to chose which of these three owls.  
If you want one I suggest you don't wait to order because there more than likely won't be anymore this year.  

These owls are the perfect size for a stocking stuffer for Christmas.  In this photo the owl is sitting in my hand
These were made by a perfectionist!  She doesn't want to make anything unless she makes it the best it could possibly be!  Everything will stay together and last for a long time! 

This one is the cutest most spunky little owl of the nest!  With her pretty soft pink ribbon feet and Hello Kitty pattern print she's sure to please any little girl!   

I think this little owl is my favorite!  He's so original with his eyes. Any child would love to have him!  

Each one of these owls are ready to take off and be at your front door for Christmas! So email me A@ to order yours.   :)

One Big Step

My gorgeous baby sister, Victoria. 
Hello.  I'm back!  It feels like I've disappeared off the face of blogging world for weeks, but it's only the truth.   I have been extremely busy with my family over the last 3 weeks.   2 weeks ago today, my beautiful baby sister was born.  She had low blood sugar and had to be put into the NICU.  That following Wednesday night she arrived home for the first time, where her 14 older brothers and sisters all met her for the very first time.   On that Friday, the baby, Victoria, had a check up to see how her blood sugar was doing.  Her blood sugar was good, but now she was losing weight.  Her formula was going right through her.  The doctor put her on another kind of formula.  The next day, Saturday, she had to go back to see if she had improved.   Sadly she had lost more weight and was admitted to the hospital immediately.   They put her on a feeding tube for a couple days then slowly started feeding her a very special kind of formula, and finally on Wednesday my gorgeous baby sister was able to come home.  Exactly where she is right now. :)

During that time I was busy helping out around the house, I'm kind of the main babysitter, along with my two sisters that are near my age.  

With that being said, I've had very little time to get on the computer, much less blog.  I haven't stopped trying to raise money for Mick though.  I actually got to the fabulous amount of $100!!   Ahh!!  Such a huge step!!  Only $900 to go!  God has certainly blessed me.   I just want to thank every single person who has been praying for Mick.  And thank you to those who donated!  I'm so grateful for everyone's blessings to Mick.  I am so happy that I have reached $100 already!  Usually I don't get much more than that.  I am just overwhelmed with happiness when I think of all the kind people who are doing such wonderful things for "my" little man, Mick. :)

As of now I am making custom Facebook Timeline covers, and blogger backgrounds for just a $5 donation to Mick's Angel Tree fund, which is currently on my YouCaring account.

If you don't need or want one of those you can always purchase a piece of the puzzle.  PLEASE check it out!  I personally think it's one of the funnest fundraisers ever!   Check out the Puzzle Fundraiser, right here.  

I'm coming up with more fundraisers soon!  Now that life is slowly beginning to settle back into the "normal", I'll be able to plan much more!

Please keep Mick in your thoughts and prayers,  And feel free to share this blog!  It's so helpful and free!  So why not?! ;)  

Again I cannot tell you how incredibly grateful I am for all of your generosity!  You are truly helping save a precious life.

First Piece of the Puzzle

Hello little man!  I'm here to bring you some fantastic news!  YOU GOT YOUR VERY FIRST ANGEL TREE DONATION!   People that read this letter are going to think I'm absolutely insane, but seriously.  I got so excited to see that $20 in your YouCaring account, right before I went to bed last night.   I had been praying that God would bring someone along that would donate that first amount of money to your Angel Tree fundraiser.   Something that showed me I could actually do this.  That I can really raise a thousand dollars for you.   I refused to fall into discouragement and about an hour later I see that someone that loves and cares for you has donated twenty dollars.  They bought a piece of your puzzle.  They bought THE FIRST piece.   What a special, wonderful present for you and me both.  

I was gone all day but shortly after I got home I wrote sweet Melissa T.'s name on a piece of your puzzle.      

Melissa, thank you so much for this donation.  I don't know if I can describe my appreciation using words.  ((Hugs)) From me and Mick. :)

Mick we only have $980 to go!  I'm feeling so inspired and encouraged  by this little gift to you.  I don't if people realize what their love and kindness can make another person feel.  It's contagious really.   I am beyond grateful for this and for the chance that I have to be your Angel Tree Warrior this year.  

I love you tons and will be praying for you. Can't wait for you to get this puzzle one day...

First Keepsake Presents

Honestly, this is way overdue.  I've been Mick's prayer warrior for about 5 months and today is the day I start his special keepsake box.  

I make a keepsake box for each orphan I advocate for.  I see things that remind me of the child and I purchase them, knowing I can't send it to them automatically  I will be able to send it to them once they are adopted and home with their forever family.  It's special to the whole family when they discover that someone loved and thought about their little one before they found them.  

Though I've yet to find a cute box to begin the "keepsake box" I did find something that will kickoff the start of Mick;s keepsake box.  

When I spotted this book I knew I had to get it for my little man, Mick.  This book is so sweet!  It reminds me so much of him.  My incredible mom bought it for me.  She wants to help him the ways she can, which means the world to me. ( I'm incredible blessed to have such a great mom that supports me and wishes to help me bless these orphans.)   

I can picture Mick now and his future mommy reading the book to him, and him pointing out the giant colorful pictures.  My heart melts just thinking of that moment.  I pray that it will all come true soon,  

My sisters, mom and I are planning future fundraisers for Angel Tree, I am growing more excited for Mick.  I'm feeling so hopeful.  I know that God has big plans for Mick.  

I appreciate you reading, please pray for Mick.  It would mean a lot to me.  

Oh and don't forget about my last post about Mick;s puzzle fundraiser.  It's a very special way to get his fundraising started!  

Thank you! :)

A Piece of the Puzzle

I'm happy to introduce the very first Angel Tree fundraiser for Mick!  A puzzle fundraiser!!  There isn't a big fancy prize involved but there is something extra special that you will get out of donating to Mick's AT (Angel Tree, the donation box at the top right side bar.)   

Here's how the puzzle fundraisers work.  

I have a cute little 24 piece puzzle for Mick.  I'm going to put the puzzle into his keepsake box that I'm making for him.  I will one day give the keepsake box to Mick when he's home with his forever family.  

If you donate $5 to Mick's Angel Tree you are purchasing a piece of the puzzle.  What I mean by that is, you will comment on this post with your name and then I will write your name on the back of a piece of the puzzle.  Then Mick and his future family will always know who loved and cared about him before they came along.   

I absolutely LOVE these kinds of fundraisers.  They're so special!  I will be posting on the pieces of the puzzle with names of the generous people who have donated.    That way if you donate, you'll be able to see your piece.  :)  

How do I donate? 

There is a box labeled  "Wishes for Mick" , it's a YouCaring donation box.  The money will be saved into that account until after November the first.  That's when Reece's Rainbow (the site the orphans are listed and AT is held) begins counting donations to the $1,000 goal.   You can find the box at the top of the right side bar on this blog.  

Here's a couple pictures of the puzzle I've got for him. :)

A look at the whole puzzle. :) 

This photo is a little blurry looking, mostly because this side of the box is 3D, like the actual puzzle. I can't get over how cute the sea turtle is!! 

If you have any questions whatsoever just comment or email me and I'll respond back as soon as I can. :)  

I really do appreciate you taking time to read this and I am so extremely grateful  for any donations!  I'm praying so hard that He will help me reach the $1,000 goal for Mick's Angel Tree. :)  And in case you were wondering, the Angel Tree money goes into his adoption grant.  :)  

Thanks again!
