Puzzle Update - PLEASE HELP!

Repost from Handiwork for Lilly. I don't know when I'll be back to reg blogging, but hopefully soon! :)

Sixteen years ago today, a very special person made her appearance into the world. That person is Rachel. She has grown into such a mature, beautiful young lady and I'm proud to be her friend.

Here are some pictures (of pictures) I found in my mom's albums (our parents have been friends since before I was born), and while we were looking though her mom's albums at her house today. :)

Note: She's probably going to kill me when she see's I've posted these, so you'll know why if you don't ever hear from me again! ;)

Today, being her birthday, is also our goal for having the butterfly puzzle completely filled in. Here is what the puzzle looks like as of today:
Just over half way there!!! Thank you SOOOO VERY MUCH to each and everyone of you who has donated and sponsored a piece of the puzzle!! We are so very grateful!!

But, we still have a ways to go. We are at 275 304 out of 500 pieces right now, which leaves 225 196 left to fill.

If you have not already gotten a puzzle piece, or even if you have, would you PLEASE consider sponsoring a puzzle piece or more than one??


This isn't for Rachel, although we have used her birthday as a goal. This isn't for me, although I am putting out the plea for help. This is for Lilly.

Lilly has been laying in a crib for 5 years, in a room with many other kids, staring at nothing. All. day. long. Can you even imagine???

No hugs, no love, no nothing. Just a grated bottled with mush or hot broth in it once or maybe twice a day. That is Lilly's life. That is why she needs your help to get out.


Rise to the challenge, friends.

Lilly needs our help, and you have been COMMANDED to help! Not by me, but by God. That's right!

God has commanded us to take care of the widows and the orphans (James 1:27). Tare care.
That doesn't mean give a little or say a prayer and hope someone else will do the rest.
It means pray without creasing.
It means give as much as you feel led God tells you to give.
It means consider if you are able to adopt her.
It means adopting her if God has told you to.
It means spreading the word so many other can hear about her plight.

And this is not just for Lilly you are commanded to do this, it's for all the orphans. Think there are too many to help? Well, you may not be able to help them all, but you can help save one. And it will make a difference to that one.


We need your help to finish this puzzle, we can't do it alone.
We need your help to raise Lilly the money her family will need to adopt her,
we can't do it alone.
We need your help to pray, pray, pray for her, we can't do it alone.
We need your help to spread the word and her picture so her family will find her, we can't do it alone.

I'm begging you to help us help Lilly, we are worn out and tired from all this fundraising, and a little discouraged she doesn't have a family yet, but aren't going to give up. No way! But we can't do it alone.

Lilly was out of time several years ago, it's a miracle in itself she is still hanging on. She needs out now. Please help her!
