New Week, New Family

You guys, I am so tickled to introduce you to a seriously awesome couple,  Colleen and Jussi Yrjana. Watch their video and tell me you don't want to adopt them. They've got their hands full with the adoption of their littles (a sibling set - two girls, 3 and 6) from DRC  and the impending arriving of their first grandchild! Stay in the loop on their blog.

I love love love this video. I cry happy tears like a goofball at the end!

Ready to slam that donate button?! Let's get those little girls home!

*tiny side note: this is our first Canadian family! when you donate you should know that it makes a conversion and your US dollar (if you're American) will be charged a few cents more than usual. literally, just a few. but just a heads up. :)
