Ready to go!

We’ve had lots of fun trips to see Great Grandma Howard in Colorado (like this, and this, and this). This visit was a sad one to say good-bye to Great Grandma.

It was a hot day in Minnesota. A great day to go to a Como Park look at the animals and ride a ride.

The “end of the ride” reaction.

Morning Star Orphanage

Posted by danaandtammy on Tuesday Mar 29, 2011 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs, Travels

On our trip to China, my daughter and I (Tammy) had the honor of bringing some medical supplies, clothes, and toys to Morning Star Family Home, an orphanage specializing in the care of critically ill children. The Morning Star Foundation also works to raise the funding for the kid’s life saving surgeries. We want to share a few pictures and stories of the cuties and some ways that you can help out.

Our daughter enjoyed playing with the little ones, but still struggles understanding all the details of kids without a mom or a dad.

 

 

 

There are lots of ways to help…donating towards specific surgeries, sponsoring individual children monthly, donating towards general needs of the orphanage, adopting, spreading the word, volunteering (medical experience a plus), and prayer as you follow the stories of the children on Morning Star’s blog.

You can find more details at their blog, but here are the children that weren’t in the hospital when we visited.

This is Adam. He’s currently 8 months and still looking for a “forever family.”

Hope turns 1 on Easter, April 24th, and is waiting for a “forever family.”

Joy is just over a year and is waiting for a “forever family.”

Corrie is 3 and is loved so much at the orphanage, but is waiting for a “forever family.” Please take the time to read more of her story.

This little guy is Daniel and he is just waiting for his “forever family” to survive all the paperwork and come and pick him up. Yeah!

Emily was full of smiles for the camera and had lots of fun playing with our daughter. Emily is still looking for a “forever family.”

Josiah is almost 2 and is also adopted.

Last but not least is Luke, who has quite a story (you can read it here and more here). His “forever family” is also getting ready to come and get him.

There are others that we did not get to meet on this trip.

These children are so loved at Morning Star, but even the amazing directors Bill and Lynsay would be the first to say that what they all need is a family to call there own.
