Today, I would like to draw your attention to your ability to help. I am asking you to help the babies of the Starfish home. Prayerfully consider what you, your business, your church, or group can do to help Amanda and the Starfish babies. Thank you for caring and sharing what you can.
To help a child is always a good thing,
I have copied Amanda's blog entry below for your consideration. You can find out more about the babies and what Amanda and her staff are doing by clicking on the links.
Looking For Skilled Volunteers
After being in the same place for five years STARFISH has to move. We have found a house which is really suitable for us, but needs some major work and we found out yesterday that we will be able to move in there, but before that happens we have to renovate. In order to do that, I will need some major help. Do you perhaps know a plumber, electrician, handyman experienced do-it-yourselfer that will be willing to come to China for a month or two and come and help us get this new place ready for the babies?
Time is of the essence and I will need someone as soon as possible. Nothing like having a plan and giving you a long lead time. As one of my favorite adages teaches: IF IT WAS NOT FOR THE LAST MINUTE NOTHING WOULD GET DONE!
For all the people in China, do you perhaps know if any companies that do construction and decoration that would like to make a donation in China to Starfish, please put us in touch. We could even use samples of household products and appliances, and we are going to need air conditioners for sure. If you can think of anything that could be useful to us, I would like to know.
Life, love and laughter,

At Starfish, we have taken care of 118 children to date, arranged more than 100 surgeries and had 38 international adoptions, so our little starfishes live all over the globe: the US, Netherlands, Norway, France, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Canada and in China. Our latest adoptions took place recently and now we have a fifth baby in Holland and our first baby in Washington State. We have also added another baby to our count in Holland. We currently have 51 babies under the age of 3 and three foster homes. We have fifteen babies matched and we are waiting for their families to come and get them.
