Have a Heart :)

The "Born In My Heart" Art Auction begins tomorrow, April 24th - April 29th (Beginning the 24th @ 9:00am PDT)

In nearly every orphanage in China, children in need of heart surgery wait to be healed. In an effort to help as many of these orphaned children as possible, Love Without Boundaries began the "Born In My Heart" art auction five years ago. This is an annual event that serves as a special tribute to the miracle of adoption, and also as a fundraiser to help provide these essential operations to children who need emergency heart surgery. You can help to save the life of a child by taking part from April 24-29. Every penny raised will help to heal precious children and give them the opportunity to grow and thrive, and perhaps even find a family of their very own. So please bid often and bid generously!

Auction items will begin to launch at 9am (Pacific) on Thursday, April 24th. Nearly 300 items will be added throughout the day, and the auction will close Tuesday, April 29th (again, with items closing throughout the course of the day). They will have some absolutely incredible items this year, all donated by LWB's fabulous supporters! Just a few of the items you won't want to miss are: "Jia: Portrait of Hope" by Leila Ashton: an original oil painting of one of our LWB heart babies, a life-size replica jade burial suit, two giclee prints of "Qi Pan" by Zhao Kailin, personalized digital lifebooks, the most beautiful collection of quilts imaginable (including several "100 Good Wishes" quilts), beautiful paintings (both originals and giclee prints), calligraphy, custom adoption videos, amazing photography, embroidery, gift baskets, jewelery, clothing, heritage items and so much more!

You will be able to access the auction from the Love Without Boundaries website homepage at: http://www.lovewithoutboundaries.com/ beginning April 24th.

Tomorrow is my birthday and I will begin bidding on Jia: Portrait of Hope as a present to myself. You can read about this amazing little girl at: http://lwbchinablog.blogspot.com/2008/04/story-of-hope.html

LWB is the most amazing organization. They sponsored Ethan's life saving heart surgery and he is a healthy boy today because of their good work.

If you have enjoyed reading this blog and have cared about our son and our family then please consider bidding on an item and saving a child.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

With love,

Lori

I will definitely be checking out the LWB auction this weekend. LWB is definitely a cause we support in this house. They have helped so many children in our extended family there is no way to not support them somehow.

Hope you're having a great birthday!
