It's Packed!

I'm so excited to tell you that the shipping container we have been talking about for more than a year is now packed and ready to go to Ukraine! After many delays, the US State Department approved a grant to send this container with blankets, clothing, shoes, and baby bouncers to Ukraine. So many people worked very hard on this project and we certainly learned a lot. After packing and repacking pallets this morning, we are all thrilled to know that tomorrow this container will leave for the long, 2 month journey, to Ukraine. Hundreds of pounds of clothing, baby bouncers, shoes, and blankets totaled 16 pallets and will be distributed to children throughout Ukraine.

We thank you for all your donations to this project as well as you patience while we worked through the necessary steps to finally make this a reality. The children who will receive all of these items will be so blessed by each of you.
