Project Impact

This last weekend was incredible! We had the honor and privilege to attend the Project Impact fundraiser in Portland, Oregon, hosted and organized by Ray & Theresa VanWetten.

It was amazing to actually meet families face-to-face that I have chatted with, laughed with and cried with online. We got to meet Jori Armstrong, Kari & Zoie Gibson, Lusse Family, Stager Family, Joner Family, Nunez Family, Gamble Family(who invited us into their home and showed us amazing hospitality) and our wonderful AWAA program director, Duni and her husband & son!

All proceeds from Project Impact will go to supply the AWAA Transition Home and Kid's Care Orphanage with much needed formula, diapers and wipes. The night raised $40,000! What a miracle!!! God truly moved in the hearts of those in attendance.

Here are some of the pictures from our weekend.

Nathaniel doing his favorite thing: eating! It is a good thing these bibs really work. BTW where did my son get his love for squash? I can't stand the stuff.

The night of the fundraiser.

Best friends forever.
