Saving Olive

Dear friends, You may notice the new picture link titled "Saving Olive" I have added to the right column of my blog. Well I have recently learned (from a fellow SB mom) about a family that is trying to rise money ($6,000 to be exact) to help cover the costs of an international adoption. They have a website: http://savingolive.blogspot.com/ where they detail their journey of how they are desperately trying to save a little 3.5 year old girl by the name of Olive (so cute!) from a life in an institution. Olive, who was born with Down Syndrome and a heart defect, lives in Eastern Europe where she is likely to suffer at the hands of ignorance unless she is adopted and brought home to a family who loves her.

They are making and selling some adorable hats and I thought I would pass along their website just in case anyone wants to order on in support of a family that wants to help a sweet little girl. You can also choose just to donate to their cause if you wish. Thank you so much for reading.

These hats are designed to look like olives and are green with a red center on top! So adorable - this is the one I want to order for Jet. The girls version has scalloped edges, and the boys has a clean finish.
And I love this for a little girl!

I don't know this family but was touched by their story. I also think the little hats are adorable. The wife, Ashley, sent me this link when I contacted her about purchasing a hat: http://savingolive.com/

Thank you for sharing! I think I'm also going to get a hat for little Ansley :-) She'll need to keep warm in January!
