A year and a half ago, I made some pockets for Lori to take with her on her trip to Africa. Cami and Noah loved the pockets I made for them, so I filed it away as something I wanted to do for Lainey’s orphanage when we travelled to bring her home.
Fast forward to NOW!
Everything is happening so quickly and we might be traveling in a little more than TWO (max four) WEEKS!
TWO weeks! I can’t believe I may actually be holding my little girl!
So I started knitting away! Trying to calculate how many of these I can get done on a flight to congo. I know its quick, but anyone who’d like to donate a pocket or two. You’d need to mail it off by the end of next week to assure that I’d receive it. These knit up really fast… and not to leave out those who crochet, my friend Kristi from Needles ‘n Knots created a pattern for you to follow. You can comment below or email me if you’d like to donate! I will be filling these with snacks and small toys. If you don’t knit or crochet, but would like to donate formula, snacks or small toys. We will be filling our suitcase with as many donations as we can. I spoke with my agency and she told me that there is about 80 kids at Lainey’s orphanage (pictured below). Chris and I are intending at least two of our four suitcases to be donations.
80 pockets in 2 weeks.
Baby Girl in TWO WEEKS!!
I won’t be posting while I’m over there. Just soaking up time with our little girl, but I’ll be sure to share all about our trip when we get back.
