I just wanted to update everyone on the diabetic orphan I posted about earlier. Her name is Diana, and she is a 16 year old Russian girl, living in an orphanage. The Antares Foundation, a group that helps orphans, has everything in place for
her to come to the states for treatment, but they need to raise funds for her to
travel, approximately $5,000. Please go to http://deescribbler.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/07/a-child-in-need.html to view a photo of this beautiful girl, and learn how to make
a donation in Diana's name and help save her life.

Thank You for this wonderful information Toni....I will pray for this young lady, "Lord we ask for all the funds to come in for this precious young lady, We ask you to fly her quickly here to the U.S.--Put this young lady on the hearts of many people Lord...If just 5,000 people would give $1.00 a piece Lord she could come here to the U.S. Lord we know nothing is to hard for you. Lord, We give you Praise and Honor for your name's sake Lord., Selah Amen "
