Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Bloom Get out & play day

So the Awesome "Bloom girls" and I spent Saturday spreading the word about our Charity organization.. There was a small family festival, and we had a booth where kids could come and plant their own "bloom".. It was fun to be out there,  trying to get our name out there a bit, and spreading the word about the big golf tournament coming up in April.. Last year us girls put the tournament on in record time...  I think we had about 4 months to get it put together & that is with me traveling to China & "E" adopting her sweet bundle within weeks of each other... It was nutty to say the least.  So this year we are excited to have a little experience under our belts and a lot more time to make it a fantastic event....  Other HUGE news from the bloom front... We found an orphanage in Haiti to partner with!!!   So while our main focus is helping out people in our area that are adopting, we also want to try to help children in impoverished countries where adoption is not as commonplace. We will be suppling them with beans and rice for near a full year.  We are also going to try to work with them to come up with a way we can set up a sponsorship program for the kids living in the orphanage...  They got by this last hurricane by the skin of their teeth.. The lady that runs the place seems like such an amazing soul.. She does so much for these kids, and never turns any child away...Which seems rare in a country where people are literally starving...  We have big hopes for serving this orphanage.  I am so lucky to be working on this project with the greatest girls in the whole world... We have fun, and hopefully we can make our little dream ...a HUGE success!!!
