We Could Buy A Pool!

The other day, I was sitting in the back yard watching our eight kiddos splash and play in the two small pools we bought from our local Fred's.  The kids were having such a blast with the four girls in one pool sitting so sweetly together and the four boys in the other pool acting like they seriously needed to splash all of the water out before they were through!  

I thought to myself "Wouldn't it be great to install an in ground pool, so they could really splash and play!"  And as I sat there a few minutes longer it crossed my mind that 1. they would all need swimming lessons so that my nerves would not be shattered every time we got in the thing, and 2. that it would cost us about $25,000 to have one built with all that we would need to accommodate their special needs.  It would take us maybe a year if we were really frugal.  Yea, we could build a pool.  But then it hit me - 

That $25,000 could save the lives of two kids!

As I continued to think on that, I again realized just how much of a good time our current 8 were having.  Would they love a pool?  Sure they would.  Would they rather have another brother and sister?  Absolutely!  So could we scrimp and save and hold yard sales to buy a pool?  Yep! 

But this year I think we'll  just take swimming lessons at the Y and save two more lives instead!  

We would love it if you came along on our journey or became a part of it by contributing to our adoption fund.  The donation button is on the right of this blog, or you can click here. It will convert many currencies for those of you who do not live in the USA.  

Thank you again for your support, love and prayers!

With love,
