Where in the World?

Some of you may be asking where in the world I've been. I even missed out on my favorite Sunday blog hop. Things have been extra busy as we are trying to get Tom ready for a trip to the States for our annual fundraising. He'll be gone for two months! I know, feel sorry for me. Don't worry, I'll be sure to mention it again in order to receive your full sympathy.

It isn't as if I haven't had anything to write about. Not at all!

First off, there was this cute event:

Theresa--4 years old
A wonderful charity donated dance clothes for our little girls. I plan on writing about this very soon in greater detail and showing more pictures.


Two of our children celebrated birthdays.
Ernest turned 5 and Jennifer turned 3. 


We all worked together on cupcakes and a Thomas the Tank Engine cake made with fondant icing. I'd show you more about that, but sadly, the pictures didn't turn out.

I do have this picture from the party, though. You're welcome!

One of the big reasons we've been busy is that Tom has been filming and editing a promo video for the orphanage. It is a huge project. You can see the video from 2009 here at Vimeo. We will be uploading the videos for 2010 and 2011 next month and I'll be sure to share the links with you then. Until then, I highly recommend you watch the videos from 2007 & 2008 as well.

Today Tom posted a couple interesting pictures from his blog. Click here to check them out.

If you are visiting here for the first time, welcome. I hail from the U.S, but live in Kazembe, a village in northern Zambia, Africa.

  27. Good morning. I'm stopping by from SITS comment hour just a little late, but I am really glad I did.

    I adopted my oldest daughter from Russia and my youngest from Guatemala. I always wonder what it was really like for my oldest as she spent the first 9 months of her life in an orphanage. I am in awe that your life's mission is to take care of children who would have no one else. Bless you and your family for giving them lots of love and a great home.

    I love, love, love your little ballerina!
