Starfish supply raiser~

Kimberley over at the Seventh Diamond is doing a supply raiser for the Starfish Foster Home in China. All supplies will be sent to Amanda, who is a woman in China who started her own foster home to help China's most fragile special needs babies who may not survive in a traditional orphanage. Her orphanage is what we would consider a mid-sized apartment and she has up to 15 children living there at a time.She raises money on her own through LWB to pay for their lifesaving surgeries and goes with them to provide the love and support that they need to survive the procedures. She loves and cares for them as she prepares them to be available for adoption.If you join in, please put the Starfish graphic onto your blog sidebar to show your support. Also, please feel free to do a post to help the cause.

Here are some of the items they need:
Long sleeved onesies or body suits from 0-3to 2T.
Winter sleepers, the ones with covered feet from about 6-9 months to 3T.
Any summer clothes, Preemie to 2T.
Summer shoes from 0 to 6 children's.

Your box came today and all I can say is thank you so much. I was completely overwhelmed when I opened it. My son Tyler said, "Mom, one person really can make a difference in the world". And I told him yes, one person can.
Thank you so much for your generosity. I will do a post tonight. Amanda told me that she will do her best to show lots of photos on her blog of the children in their new clothes. The shoes are extra special too. I didn't think that many people would remember to send shoes.
