Three years ago, you helped some of my best friends in the world bring home their little boy, Addai. Now, I'm going to ask you to help my brother's best friends bring home their little boy, Levi. But the situation is really different.
Addai was in Africa. Getting a baby from Africa to America is expensive. You helped make it happen.
Levi is in America. He's actually still in his birth mommy's tummy...only 32 weeks along. But his amniotic sac is broken, and he could come at any moment. (Sounds a bit familiar, doesn't it?)
Anyway, whenever Levi comes, it's very likely that he'll need to be in the NICU for a couple of weeks or so. His forever mommy, Shannon, will jump on a plane and head down to him. However, they'd like to have a car with them, so Levi's forever daddy, Jarred, was planning to drive down and meet up with them.
But it's a long drive. And I firmly believe that Daddy should be there every minute from the very beginning. I'll never forget Mike saying, "Oh my gosh! OH my GOSH! Oh MY gosh! Oh my gosh!" for the first ten minutes of Ruby's life. It's such an incredible memory.
Some of you know that I'm a whiz with Priceline, and I'm pretty sure I can get them roundtrip tickets and a rental car for the entire time that they're down there for about $1500. Probably even less.
So I'd like to do that for them, and I was wondering if you'd help me. I've started a ChipIn, and all the money raised will go straight to Jarred and Shannon's adoption fund for the purpose of covering their expenses while Levi is in the NICU and while bringing him home. If all of our blog readers and all of my Facebook friends give $5, we'll far surpass this goal. That's really all it would take. So, if you've got an extra $5 this month, will you please consider giving it to Jarred and Shannon? You can visit the link above, or you can click on the blue ChipIn widget in the sidebar.
If you'd like to read more about their journey and follow along with Levi's forever story, you can visit their blog: Piece of the Heart.
Thank you for helping me Live Love.
