We are excited to announce that we have another daughter waiting for us in China!  She turned 4 in April and we are hoping to travel to meet her and bring her home in the fall or early winter (sooner would be better, but try telling that to the officials!).

Please feel free to visit our main family blog to meet all of us - at http://mcnewfamily.blogspot.com/.

How Close Are We?

The Raffle Drawing


Congratulations, Mari!  You are the winner of the raffle!

I hope that you will all forgive me, I didn't think that we were going to make a movie of the drawing - you get to see me in all my unprepared glory!  Yikes - you never realize how goofy you look until you watch yourself on screen, heh?

Skirts and Pants Fabric Choices

We have skirts, pants and bloomers! My Mom has graciously (and excitedly, I think!) agreed to help me out in my fundraising by sewing some ADORABLE tiered, twirly skirts and pants with your choice of ruffles or a shaped cuff! All of these are available up to a size 6. My COST is $15 plus shipping for each skirt or pants. My cost for the bloomers is $10 plus shipping. I am asking for a donation of love in addition to my cost to be directly applied to help bring our daughter home from China! For the best possible fit, please send me your sweetie's waist measurement and the desired finished length. dlmcnew@wwestsky.net

Blankets Currently Available

Oversized blankets for your sweetie's (and yours!) cuddling pleasure! These blankets are big enough to tuck in on a toddler bed! They are lovingly crafted for you with a soft flannel on one side and a coordinating ultra-soft minky on the other, or a knit/flannel combination. They are on average 45" x 60", although due to fabric irregularities, the actual measurement may vary slightly from blanket to blanket.

As with all of my items, I list my cost to make the blanket, $25 plus shipping, and ask that you include a donation of love in addition to my cost. All proceeds are helping to bring an orphan, crying out for help, home to her waiting family. dlmcnew@wwestsky.net
