Our project is over...

But that's no reason to stop giving!

Our official end total was sent to me today.
Thank you all so much for ever penny of love you sent this way. You made this year count!

It may be a new year, but the "give" page will still be up on the blog in case anyone has it on their heart to love on these little ones again. I will continue to give some updates here and there so please don't forget about the LBD Project!

Thank you
being a part of this family!

Day 365

I put my little black dress on for the last time this morning.

It feels like a dream almost. A small-worthwhile-ever-heart-changing dream. I don't believe it. I wish i could properly articulate how i feel right now. What these last 365 days have meant, and who i've become because of these children. There's just over a dozen of them, but that was all it took to change my life. One year & 13 very wonderful children.

I'm realizing how blessed i've been, & how much of a blessing i've had the chance to be for these little ones on the other side of the world. How sometimes deciding to do something hard and out of the ordinary, will become one of the best decisions i've ever made in my entire life. At this very moment, i've come to the conclusion that these past twelve months didn't look anything like i thought they would. They were so much better, so much more. Maybe we didn't finish out by making 10k, but we finished with changed hearts, creating a community that cares, and learning what it really means to give.

You & me together. 

I cannot thank you all enough for caring for these children. For spending a year following what i had to say, even when i had nothing to say at all. For the encouraging notes, e-mails, comments, and prayers that were said and sent. You blew me away. The total on the sidebar will forever just be a number. This was more than the amount of money you gave, more than however many times you clicked the give tab.

This feels like a small family now. You+me+the fatherless.

Good job,
sisters & brothers.
(you made this year count.)

Happy New Year.
Let's celebrate.

Day 364

One more day.
One more dollar.
One more prayer.

This could change their lives.

Day 363

Hello friends!
The project is coming to an end in two short days. (I apologize for the lack of updates the past week. Being on the road has made this entirely too impossible.) But I want you all to know my heart has been so excited for what has been accomplished this year for these beautiful children. And I want to thank you for taking a part no matter how big or small. We may be far from our original goal, but I am so sure that whatever amount we end up with at the end of 2013 is and always will be perfect. I cannot thank you enough for caring for these children.
You gave.
You prayed.
You read the blog & left encouraging comments.

Without you, we would not have come this far.

I would be so honored if you would finish out strong with me.
Maybe you have a few minutes you could use to whisper some prayers to The King 
a few dollars you could give to love these children.
Whatever you give, give with all your heart please. We would be so glad!

Day 351

I spent my day wondering the forrest with my older sister and little brother. We found the most unperfect perfect tree in this entire world.
But more importantly, I also spent my day thinking about some pretty amazing children. I've never met them, but i've heard they're the beez kneez. And that's just one reason i'm in this little black dress right now.

You can make your way to the "give" tab if you think the same thing i do. They-are-worth-it.
