Many Checkbooks Make Light Burden....

I think Heavenly Father just woke me up....LITERALLY... from sleep.

We do have a FEW very generous people that are willing to put in large amounts of money to get us jet fuel to get home.

That's Plan A. That gave us what we needed to tell the people trying to find us a plane that we can pay for it. Please find us a plane. Please get us home.

What if we could ease that burden a bit. What if we could find smaller amounts from a larger number of people. What if each of you reading this could find someone to give $10? What if some of you reading this could find someone else to give $100? What if some of you reading this knew Bill Gates, or Daddy Warbucks, or just some people who are able to bear that burden and those few people could give $1,000?

If you've already donated, will you see who else you know can assist? If you're not in a position to spare $10, will you find someone else who can?

Will you help me? Will you see if you can find us $10? $25? $100? $1,000?

On my blog http://countdowntohomecoming.blogspot.com is a PayPal Donate button. On Facebook on the Hope for Little Angels of Haiti is a PayPal donate button. On http://hopeforlittleangelsofhaiti.org under "DONATE" is... (wait for it).... a PayPal donate button.

Will you help me see if there's a Plan B here? Can more people help to bear this burden that it, too, may be light?

Still working with Department of Homeland Security, and the groups mentioned before on the plane.

Let's fuel it, shall we?

Lori, if you get some time could you post how much gets donated as a result of this post? I have officially made the call out to my circle of wicked stepmom friends and others I know and hope you get a little bit of a boost in donations today.

When the kids come home, we plan to let you all settle before visiting, but since you'll have to fly into Salt lake anyway- Matt and I would like to be there when that happens. We're available for anything you need, transportation, anything.

Brent and Lori,
Your sis-in-law Paige is one of my best friends from childhood. ( I was probably introduced to you at the wedding, but it's all a blur now!) I've linked over here a few times from her blog to see how y'all are doing, but just this weekend I've spent all my spare time reading all of your blog archives. I know that sounds stalker-ish, but I've been so grateful to be able to read through your journey. I have shed tears of joy and sadness as I've learned more about you, and just wanted you to know that I am praying for you and your sweet adorable kiddos. I've got a blog post formulating in my brain right now so that I can spread the word!

Heard of your exciting idea from a friend whose children will (hopefully) be on the plane ride home on Tuesday. Donating, praying, and hoping you find your precious little Jessica!!! Hang in there. From one adoptive mom to another!
Lots of love,
Megan

Just a small donation but I hope it will help. I will keep you in my prayers. May faith move a mountain and a plane load of precious children.

Lori a lady at RS on Sunday mentioned a group down in St. George called The Millionaires club. They've been helping out. Maybe you could contact them and see if they could help you guys. Here is their home page. http://tagr.org/index.htm

I found your blog through Loralee's blog.
I'll be passing this post along in hopes of sending some more donations your way.
I just want to thank you for sharing this journey and to tell you I am praying for you and your sweet family. {HUGS}

Really very nice and interesting blog....The traditional way of ordering and reordering checks is through requesting your bank union to issue a batch for you.
