Hey there! We're the Aldridge family, and we are fundraising to bring our daughter home from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Throughout the month of September, we are asking people to fill a little house with extra change to help bring Emily to her forever home. Check your couch cousins, clean out your car, dig in the bottom of your purse, and help there to be one less orphan in this world. Want a little house? No problem! Just e-mail us littlehousesforemily@outlook.com. We'll e-mail you a little house for you to fill. At the end of the month, just make a donation here in the amount you collected in your little house. Every penny makes a difference; every penny is one penny closer to having her HOME. Would like to make a donation but little houses aren't your thing? That's great too! Thank you for supporting us as we follow God's call to bring His name to the nations and to care for His children. We hope you will follow our adoption journey at www.leemeandthegirls.blogspot.com.

We've reached the 25% mark! So far, twenty-seven houses have been cashed in, and we have raised over $1200 to help bring Emily HOME! I am not a crier. At least I wasn't until now. But each and every time someone has donated even a dollar to help bring our daughter home, I just can't help myself. I so truly believe that adoption is Biblical, that Christ calls us to care for His children, and that He desires for us to spread His name to the nations. My family longs to do that. My daughter is in Congo right now, waiting for me to hold her, to comfort her, and to love her. And you are making that possible.

If you have already donated, thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I honestly wish that I could hug each and every one of you and look in the face (which holding back my tears that just keep coming these days) and tell you just how much I appreciate this. YOU are helping MY family be together. YOU are helping a little girl in this world to have a mom, a dad, and two sisters who are dying to get their hands on her. There just aren't words to tell you how much that means to me.

So far, we've had TWELVE people cash in their little houses and have almost reached the $700 mark! There are still 103 houses out there. Have you cashed in YOUR little house to help bring Emily HOME? So humbled and thankful. High fives and big hugs for all who saved their pennies in September to bring our family together! THANK YOU simply doesn't do it justice.

September is almost over! That means it's time to start emptying your little houses and donating what you collected this month to help bring Emily HOME! You can donate any time between now and October 5th. Thank you again for your help-- you will forever be a part of our family's story! And if you didn't request a little house but would still like to contribute, that's great too! Thank you more than words can ever say!
