Meet Porter!

I will write more about Porter and what it means that he has a 5/5/5 Warrior (that's me!) tomorrow or Sunday, but in the meantime...I wanted to post his picture to get people thinking of him and praying for his future family to find him soon!

Prayers work people! Kaylee has a family! Let's find little Porter a family too!

For those of you who know me personally, the fact that this child caught my eye is no surprise. For those of you who don't know me, my maiden name is Porter. :)

Quick stats- this picture is old- Porter's birthday is August 10, 2005 which makes him 5 years old now.

As always, thank you for reading, and for your support, and for helping these children find their familys. :)

{kaylee's.hope.}: The Beginning....

{kaylee's.hope.}: The Beginning....: "It all started with God's whispers. His whispers to help the orphan, the broken, the lost. He calls us to get uncomfortable. He calls us o..."


Good, good, good news today!  Kaylee's profile has been taken off the 'Waiting Children' page and has been relocated to the 'My Family Found Me' page! :) I am SO happy. Kaylee finally has her family committed and working to bring her home.

Derek and Alyssa Chirch saw her and knew that she was the one for them. They still have a long road ahead- lots of paper work and unknowns and lots and lots of fundraising- but the process has been started and Kaylee now has a family working just for her.

They will still need lots of support, so please keep in touch with their journey to adopt Kaylee on their blog, Kaylee's Hope, and on the Facebook fan page of the same name. Please share with your friends too, it takes a village to get one of these sweet little ones home!!

As for me, I will still be helping with the efforts to bring Kaylee home in any way I can- look for a few pieces of my hand painted childrens clothes to be part of the Chirch's fund raising efforts!- but since Kaylee doesn't need a Warrior anymore (she has a family!) I will be using the rest of my Year of Yoga for another child still on the waiting list.

I will share posts from the Chirch's blog over here to keep all of the Yoga for Kaylee's sponsors updated, so don't feel like you won't get regular dose's of Kaylee info...but be looking for posts on the newest recipient of my Year of Yoga efforts very soon! Let's help bring another child home to their family!!!

Congratulations to the Chirchs and congratulations to Kaylee!!!

Kaylee's adoption fund is at $300!!!  Three hundred dollars and one cent to be exact. I don't know who the person/people is/are who donated the amount to bring her fund over $300, but whoever you are, THANK YOU! Most importantly Kaylee thanks you. (And if you'd like to be featured on the left in Kaylee's list of sponsors, please let me know, I'd love to know who you are!)

I am so grateful and humbled to be able to be a part of Kaylee's life as her warrior and I thank all of you who are helping me raise funds for her adoption. :)

Guess what!  Kaylee's adoption fund has almost reached $300! Within two months its gone from $22.50 to $283.90. That's so great and I just wanted to share that this morning. I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!

Spring is here already!

Wow, its already a week into April. Where is this year going? I feel like November and December went by at a normal speed and then January 1st swooped in and since then 2011 has just been dragging me forward at warp speed.

I'm sorry I haven't written too much lately. I am still diligently doing my yoga six days a week but life is a little disorganized feeling right now, so I am just now trying to catch up on things that were in a holding pattern during the past few weeks. I'm taking steps to move forward with the things that I have control over. Limbo is a weird place to be for me, but I can't tell you enough how much yoga has helped me during this time. Some days have been well...blah, but as soon as I step onto the mat, my breathing calms, and my brain resets itself into a more positive space. It's awesome. I don't really know how yoga works on so many levels, but its enough to know that it does and I'm thankful for it! This year long yoga project has been such a blessing to my life during the year I probably need it the most.

Yay for yoga.

And Yay for Kaylee. As we move into the spring, don't forget little Kaylee and her need for a family who loves her. All the things you enjoy doing with your families during this beautiful time of year...keep in mind that Kaylee doesn't have a family of her own to do those things with. Let's help her family find her, shall we? Please forward and share Kaylee's information (or this blog) with everyone you never know who might be the person who knows the person who will go bring Kaylee home!

Happy thoughts indeed.
