World AIDS Orphan Day

There’s a movement growing. Everyday in the Western world someone’s eyes are opened to the orphan crisis that’s ravaging the developing countries. The problem seems so large and we seem so insignificant. We can make a difference though. By raising awareness we foster a community and as a community we can provide. We’re asking you to help us in creating that community. World AIDS Orphan Day is May 7th. The AHOPE Store has developed a t-shirt to commemorate this day and the community of supporters that are growing year after year. Please join us in raising awareness. It’s simple. Order our newest t-shirt from the AHOPE Store for a $10 donation. (All proceeds go towards care of the children served by AHOPE.) Wear your shirt as often as possible, and especially on World AIDS Orphan Day. It will serve as a reminder to your community. It may even create a dialogue. That dialogue could open someone’s eyes. You might inspire them to do more, give more. We are asking you to join us in creating a community that is committed to orphan care. After seeing what one little t-shirt can you might be inspired yourself. If that’s the case be sure to check out the World AIDS Orphan Day website. Here you can find further information on this grassroots campaign and how to organize an event in your area. The campaign was founded by FXB International in 2002 and continues to grow year after year. To order your shirt, please visit For orders of 20 or more please contact Marissa Baker at Thank you very much for your support of AHOPE! Please share this on your blog and through email. We are excited about this shirt and hope that you will be too!

A Full Moon Morning

I have no idea how this happened since he didn't make a peep last night, but this was the beautiful sight we awoke to this morning! Michael said when Marley actually woke up and Mike went in there, he grabbed his diaper, handed it to Michael and said "uh-oh"...too much!!
He's sooo gonna kill me when he's 16!

Domincan Family Photos

We had such a wonderful time during Spring Break at the Domincan Republic! One of the highlights was the professional photographer we hired to take some family photos. It was kind of hot that day and we got in as many as we could before certain people had a melt down...and before Marley got tired too!
