Back in July I had butterflies in my stomach for several reasons:

We were moving to a new house, traveling around the world as a family for the summer, working toward the abolition of child trafficking while there, and I wanted to invite you readers on the journey with us somehow.

Whew, it was a lot to take in.

Having never done any type of fundraising before on this virtual space, I didn’t know what to expect. But your response blew me away. Your generosity, your concern, your passion for education.

All children deserve a chance in this world–You understood that, and through your giving you fueled more children having a chance at life and freedom.

Even since we’ve arrived home donations continue to come in!

The girls at the Round Home are now enjoying the home library we purchased for them–with titles in all age ranges, in English and Filipino–available for them to read all day every day.

Thank you so much for not only embracing our family’s work with Love146, but for also partnering with us in the cause of abolition and restoration.

(If you missed any of my posts this summer, you can find them all here.)

Now on to our weekend links:

  1. I always look forward to these weekend links. Thanks for such a thoughtful collection of things to read, ideas to consider …

  2. I love the links! The one about homeschooling a child that doesn’t like to read….that one really spoke to me!
