Another Update on the Run for the Little Flowers Virtual 5K



Please excuse the numerous updates, but I need to make sure that everyone sees this.  I will be cross posting, so that people know where we are at.  First, we are at 193 runners/walkers!  We have far surpassed the goal of having 147 runners/walkers; one runner for every 1 MILLION orphans.  I am amazed by your generosity! And, although I do not have an official total yet, we will have reached our goal of covering a Nanny's salary for 6 months! Praise God!

Now, to the "business" end of this email.  And this makes me both happy and sad. Happy, because it means we are reaching our goals. Sad, because we will not be able to accommodate many more runners/walkers who want shirts.

First, the medals are gone!!  So anyone who has registered starting mid-day October 4, 2012, will NOT receive a medal.  I only ordered 150.

Second, there are only a limited amount of shirts left.  I am trying to keep these numbers up to date. As of tonight, this is what I have left:

Youth small- 1
Youth Medium - 0
Youth Large - 1
Adult small -0
Adult Medium - 11
Adult Large - 1
Adult X-L - 0

If you try to register and do not see your size on the side bar PayPal link, that means that that size is no longer available.

Once all the shirts are gone, I will close registration, BUT I WILL STILL ACCEPT DONATIONS for Little Flower Projects up until October 20, 2012.

If you still really want a shirt, but your size is gone, please email me (katiepetko at yahoo do com), comment below, or contact me via our Facebook page.  If there is enough interest, I can order more shirts. Just note that you would not get one until after the run is over.

Thank you all for your patience with me and this fundraiser.  This is the first time I have taken a fundraiser like this on and I am learning the ropes as I go!

Thank you, especially, for your generosity to the precious "Little Flowers" with Little Flower Projects!









Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.
James 1:27

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part I

(I started writing this post months ago, but have not had time to refine it and finish it.  I have felt the need to hit "publish" lately though.  Maybe it is because Hope is too quickly approaching 12 months old and my desire to share it's sentiments would be lost soon. Or maybe it is because this week is the March for Life and the sacredness of life is before me in a precious little girl and I want to remember that, in words, here.  But whatever the reason, here is our story of seeking God's will and and being open to life.)

Shortlyafter we announced that we wereexpectingbaby Hope, I felt that I needed to share ourNFPstory.  Partially, it was because we had so many people say thingslike, "What a miracle!" or share stories of how people they knew were infertile, adopted and then had a baby of their own, thatI feltthat many people probably got the wrong idea about why we had three boys, waited a while and adopted and then found out we were expecting a baby wh…

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

Hope's Birth Story

When it comes to birth stories, most women do not write up, nor do I think they want to read about, scheduled c-sections. But, I want to remember the day and if I do not write it here to publish, it is unlikely that I will sit down for my own sake, and write, so bear with me as I recount the day.

As with most scheduled, repeat c-sections, the date was scheduled months in advanced.  I knew that Hope would arrive on May 3 unless she decided to surprise us and my body would decide to go into labor for the first time ever.  Although I am older and anything is possible, I thought it highly unlikely, so I was not too worried that she would be born any sooner that May 3rd.

The hospital that I deliver at has started something called the "Family Centered C-Section."  If you are having a scheduled, routine, c-section, you can elect to have a family centered c-section.  Basically, they allow you to have some of the experiences that you miss in a c-section that you have in a natural birt…
