Bring Yana Home!

More Beautiful Children

As many of you know, my sister has become a warrior for adoption and particularly adoption through Reece's Rainbows. The little girl pictured above has a forever family just waiting to her home! Please donate and help them bring her home soon. She's such a doll, isn't she?

Please HELP!

There is a little girl named Elizabeth that needs your help! She is beautiful, smart, and happy! She was born with down syndrome in a country where her mother was either not allowed to keep her or didn't want her. She was placed for adoption and at age 5, when she had not yet been adopted, she was sent to live out the rest of her life in an institution. She does not belong there. None of these precious children across the world from us deserve to be institutionalized but it happens every day. We cannot save every child, but there is hope for Elizabeth. She has a forever family that is ready to bring her home. (This is where you come in!) They need a little help with the funding.

Did you know that if everyone who clicked on this blog each day contributed $5.00 that the Clark's would have enough money to bring Elizabeth home in just one day? I don't have many readers. It does not take much. That is a coffee or lunch at Subway. It is the stickers you buy for your child at Target or the beer you have at happy hour after work. $5.00 could change the life of a beautiful little girl and her waiting family.

Amanda is 2

Amanda woke up sick on her 2nd Birthday.

Dear Amanda,
Today you are 2. The last 2 years have been so full of joy. You are a bright star. You are strong-willed, independent, and so sweet. You talk very well and love to tell your big sister to "go to time-out!" I think that you are one of the prettiest little girls ever. Your smile makes me smile every day. You are a wonderful daughter, little sister to Olivia, and big sister to Hanna. We all love you so much and wish you a HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY!!!

4 Wheel'in

Those of you that know me, know that I am afraid of ATV's but this is just a kiddie 4 wheeler and Amanda couldn't really reach the peddles. She just looked so cute sitting on it. She can be girly and outdoorsy~ A perfect blend!

Visit from Nate

We kept cousin Nate last weekend and Liv was so helpful. She loved feeding him. It was neat to have a baby boy around for the weekend too !

Feeding Nate again!

Best Friends!

Abbie is rock'in her 80's layered pants!

Hanna says "I will pull your hair!"

And Abbie says "Then I will bite your toes!"

These 2 little squirts love to be together. They do things like try and bite each others toes, lick each others faces, and poke each other in the eyeballs. They are destined to be best friends forever! (Isn't that how all great friendships start off?)

My Little Stinker!

Who could I possibly be referring to?

This little person got up from her nap today and ran into her sisters room. I called her name several times and got no response. As I walked back to check on her, (hearing my footsteps) she called out "No Mommy! Stop!"

She was covered in her big sister's make-up! Little Stinker...

Parties! Parties! Parties!

Reagan turned 3 last week and had a great party at Chuck E Cheese on Saturday. The girls had so much fun. I think Reagan was in shock about how much fun it was! And Olivia is just hit or miss on the smile these days. They had games and pizza and tickets and prizes on the brain!

It's hard to tell but Olivia, Reagan, and Amanda are all in this car. The 3 Muskateers!
