A Day To Save Tabitha: Spread the Bear Love = $$$

This is a very difficult post for me to write because it means that I have to let go.

Tabitha, Russia region 15H, Born May 2010

She is/was our daughter.  The daughter that Andrew and I cannot physically rescue.  The daughter that cannot be ours.  As much as it saddens me that we are not going to be her forever family, I KNOW that God led us to her for a reason.  I am devastated to say the least, but I must let her go.  However, I will not do so, until I have found her true forever family.

Forever Families are found in many ways and I know that exposure is one of them.  I also know that $$$$ helps.  There are families that want to adopt and save an orphan, but money is an issue.  A child with a large grant may increase the likelihood of being adopted.

Tabitha: Isn't she the most beautiful little girl?

So here it goes:

I currently have 49 The Chronicles of Ellie Bellie Bear followers.  Thanks followers, you are very much appreciated! Through blogging, I not only wanted to show how completely beautiful and awesome Ellie is, but to also increase awareness about Down syndrome and to increase awareness about the plight of these orphans in other parts of the world.  More followers means more awareness.

From now until Friday July 29, 2011, I will donate $1.00 per follower up to $150.  Unfortunately, I cannot afford more.  As of this post, I will be donating $49 for my fabulous 49 followers.
