We had supper last night with Rachel and the boys. we always miss them when we go , so it was nice to spend some time with them last night .
so we are all packed up .. 9 bags between the three of us .. we are only allowed to have one bag each so we will have to pay for extra bags $50 for the first and $150 for the second extra each .. fortunately we have donations specifically raised to cover the 400 lbs of Vitamins we are bringing .
I do have one other small dilemma.. so I am going to leave this one up to you guys to decide. I have received a request for a special wheel chair. It is for a 6 or 7 year old child that has CP. the child is in the orphanage, and the family comes to see him, but can not take him home because they don't have a chair. We have been asked to find him a chair to help get him around, as well so that he will have better posture when he sits to promote better health. I thought finding the right chair would be the hard part, but we did find one . The problem is that it is too small for me and I can not pretend to use it to get it on the plane, and we already have too many bags. I just called the airlines and they will not budge .. it is going to be $150 US to bring it with us. So here is what I am going to do .. I will have it ready to go, and if someone sponsors this chair before 8 am tomorrow , I will bring it with me . If not we will try again in the fall.. the next time we travel over. If you would like to help with this , you can use the donate button on the right side of the blog .
