Countdown to ET!!!

 I leave in 4 days to head back to ET!!! I can't wait! My sister, my daughter and I fly out on Friday and will arrive in ET ready to hit it hard on Sunday.

I have gift packages from some of you ready to take over to your precious little ones as you wait on your court date.  I can't wait to give them big kisses for you......and take lots of pics.

This trip will be focused on visiting waiting children in order to get some good pictures and video of them and blast them out on our Speak Up.  Make sure to sign up if you haven't already, to receive our Speak Up emails. Email info@ordinaryhero.org in order to get signed up to receive the emails.

I am totally scrambling last minute but if you would like to make a donation for something for me to pass out to the kiddos in the orphanages while I'm there, you may do so by clicking HERE.

If you would like to send something in order for me to take to them you can email me at Kelly@ordinaryhero.org and let me know. You can mail it to PO Box 1945 Brentwood TN 37024.  I must have it by Thursday of this week because I leave on Friday.

Good things to take are small toys (dolls, balls, cars, coloring books, crayons, candy, suckers, crackers,etc) We also need diapers and formula.

Of course I will be taking tons of pics and posting as much as the internet will allow :) I plan to blog everyday I have internet so make sure you follow along on this exciting trip.

As soon as we arrive we head 7 hours out to a remote orphanage.  We may even head back to the city with some kiddos in tow with us the next day :) We plan on an action packed, nonstop week.

We welcome and thank you for your prayers, especially!!

ALSO.......TONIGHT I WILL DO A DRAWING OUT OF ALL MY FOLLOWERS.....

ONE WILL WIN THE COFFEE AND TUMBLER AND ONE WILL WIN THE CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT.

STAY TUNED.......

  3. Hey Kelly I would love love if our paths cross a world away. I talked to Sue and she said that she is not staying at New Flower :( Our trip will be busy too. So it really would be a miracle if we get together. But here is to praying it happens! I would love to just hug you for all you do and have done for our family! Safe travels!

  4. Kelly,

    How exciting! I will certainly be praying for you throughout your trip. I have followed your blog for a long time now, but I've never commented before. I've been a lurker. :) My husband and I are just beginning the process of adopting our first little one from Uganda and I can't tell you how much of an encouragement your blog has been to me! Thank you so much for sharing your story!

    Blessings, Karly
