idol gives back

Last year we sat as a family and watched Idol Gives Back.  We didn't know what to expect, but the Lord ended up using this show to further convince our hearts that we had two children in Africa that were ours.  Moody and I cried a big ugly cry through most of the show! We were really thankful that the folks at Fox and many other companies decided to do something so positive!

Will you please tune into this years show?  The preview from last week showed two sisters from Ethiopia so I assume that there will be more footage from Ethiopia. Encourage your friends and family to watch!!

 Wednesday - April 9th
6:30 p.m cst (notice it is starting 30 minutes earlier than normal)

If you are not convinced yet, watch this video from last years show with Carrie Underwood.  I bet you will change your mind!! :)

I cry every time I watch that video. I tried to buy that song on I-Tunes but you can't. I think you could last year after the performance.
LOVE IT! I loved the piece they did this past week on the two sisters from Ethiopia.
I am so glad you mentioned it is earlier... Didn't know that.

Thanks for your encouragement this past weekend with the walk. It was so good to do. It always is. I miss my sweet MOM so much!

Thinking about you!
We are kickin the phonics today! Trying to do like 15 lessons to catch up! (but we still won't be caught up just yet)

Praying for your kiddies!!!!
PS when you saw the sibling girls last week didn't it make it more exciting about adopting sibs?!

I love American Idol and I also have also loved the whole Idol gives back movement. Watched it last year and will watch it this year!

this is great! we, too, cried last year when we watched. we were in the midst of changing countries from china to ethiopia during that time last year, and the idol gives back shows truly confirmed our passion for africa! i am thrilled they are doing it again for a second time and hopefully it will impact even more people this year to join in and help!

I LOVE Idol gives back. Although I'm thinkin' it'll be even closer to our hearts this year! Thanks for the reminder- and loved the video too. I'd never seen that. Thanks for all the encouragement's so great how God gives us friends (who are really strangers!)to help us and pray for us. We continue to pray for you and your kiddos too!
