Look what I get to do!!!

I get to volunteer at An Orphan's Wish!!!

Truly, I am humbled and grateful that I can be part of such an amazing organization!

I have left a big part of my heart in China!
China is where Shea and Avery were born!
They have a history there....

Because of them, China will always be a part of my life....and I embrace that!

Somehow, I know that China is not done with me yet!
I am not really sure what that means....I am waiting on God.... in the meantime.....

I get the supreme privilege and honor of not only working with a bunch of incredible women....

But, I get to 'work for' a bunch of adorable children!!!

Several months ago, Stefanie, the Ni Hao Y'all lady, (who also, btw, is the US Director for An Orphan's Wish) figured out the perfect 'job' for me. 

I immediately fell in love with this opportunity!!

I get to thank {some very wonderful} folks who become sponsors to one of our little darlin's!
I get to 'meet' all kinds of really cool people.
People who love children!!!
People who want to help children receive the care and love that every child has a right to!
I even get to 'meet' people who live in Australia!!!  Who say things like cheerio, g'day, and mate to me via email!!
How cool!
(I know I am kind of a dork like that!)


The real reason for this post?????

How about you???

Are you looking for a way to impact a child's life?

Is there a little part of your heart in China???

An Orphan'sWish

We at An Orphan's Wish are currently working real hard to get 100 {new} Sponsors in 100 Days!!!

We began this effort in July.....we have until October 17th to achieve this goal!

Right now we have 39 NEW sponsors!!!!
We need a 'tad' more!

Would you consider becoming a sponsor?
Would you like to become involved in our 100 Sponsors in 100 Days effort?
Please feel free to contact me at
(Cuz, y'all know how much I love 'talking' and getting to know people....).

If you become a sponsor during this time, you get a super cute tee-shirt, a button for your blog, (or Face Book) and the chance to impact a sweet little one's life!!!

Just look at all these cuties!!!

All these kiddos need more sponsors....
One of these buttons could be on your blog!

Oh yeah.....
Just one more {little} thing!

We {the volunteers} have a chance to travel to China with Stefanie & LeeAnn (the AOW president).
How, you might ask????

Pretty simple.
For every person 'we influence help' to become a sponsor....
Our name gets put into a drawing....
FOR A TRIP TO An Orphan's Wish IN CHINA!!!!!!!!!  Woo-hoo!!!!
 So maybe can you mention my name...?????
 Pretty please????

You know how I said that 'China is not done with me yet'????

Well, maybe...just maybe....????? ( one can only dream.....)

More importantly, this is really about the children at An Orphan's Wish.
It is my prayer that each and every one of them becomes fully sponsored!!!

Talk about making a difference!


  1. How exciting! Love the phrase you've coined ... China isn't done with me yet. I will be using that in the future! We sponsor Jackson at Orphan's Wish and I would love to get one of those buttons and more regular updates on him. Hoping my name is in the entry for a trip to Orphan's Wish to meet Stefani and LeeAnn.
    Love & Blessings from Hong Kong,

  2. Isn't awesome to work for AOW! I have been truly blessed! God answered a prayer of my heart too! We can't wait to see what God has planned for us too! Praying for God to lead you.....maybe back to China....:)

  3. Yay AOW!!! That is fantastic Chris! We love our little Sara that we sponsor at AOW! It's about as close to ever having a girl as I think I can get!!

  4. Oh that is wonderful Chris!!!!! Big hugs:)

  5. I love that you are doing this! Sponsorship is one of the most rewarding things our family does.

    Have I mentioned that Orphans Wish is my TIP TOP favorite???
