So Remember the Story about the Girl and the Baseboards...

... that I posted the other day? The little girl that saw the info about Haiti and our kids and wanted to know if she could clean baseboards to earn money to send "to those kids"?

Last night about 8, there was a knock at our door. When I went to answer it, there was little Alli and her mom. Alli had her hand out and in her palm were 6 quarters.

She said, "I know Brent leaves early in the morning and I wanted to make sure he had the money that I earned for Jessica and Nathan."

I gave her one of the silicone bracelets we have that have the O name on it. Her mom told me later that she said she's not going to take it off until Jessica and Nathan are home.

Thank you for your example, Alli!

If only she were always this sweet! But it gives me hope that some things she learns at home and church seep in! She is being a true example to me right now. She wont stop praying they find Jessica! She wants to read the blog everyday! Thank you Lori for moving in so we can have this "teaching moment"
