I have hinted that something has been in the works, and boy has it!!!

If you have ever been to Africa, you know that it gets into your system. You come back a changed person( I know I have said this a thousand times). You just feel like you have to do more. You feel restless until you do more. So the announcement is. . .

Awaka Children's Foundation has come to life!!!!! I have joined forces with 3 other adoptive moms to start a non-profit organization(NGO). Our goal is to work with orphanages in remote areas of Uganda. We want to provide these orphans with the same level, if not better, of care that our children received at Sanyu. We have made contact with an orphanage in the Kabarole area of Uganda, that is currently trying to take care of 200+ children. Notice I said trying.

We are in the beginning stages of our dream. We know we don't have all of the answers, but we are eager learners. Please visit our blog,, and join our facebook page to keep up with our progress.

Please let us know if you would like to sponsor a child.
