Bring Anna Home

Some of you might remember this from last summer. This was discussed at our reunion in Door County--and I took some of my money that I had been setting aside for a new camera and donated it. I know money is tight for everyone, but every little bit helps. And every child needs a chance.

Subject: New announcement: Bring Anna Home!
> Remember our efforts with Operation Chance...bringing 3 children from Russia to the US for medical evaluation?? > > Well, the sweet little 7-year old with cleft lip and palate (Anna) has finally found a home! The family was not looking to adopt (they have 5 children), nor were they familiar with cleft lip and palate. They did not know Russia was one of the most ex-pensive countries to adopt from..but, they followed their hearts! They worked very diligently to complete a home study only to have both parents lose their jobs within a period of 2 weeks (automotive-related industries). Job loss has affected their ability to qualify for loans or other programs.> > They are determined to bring Anna home but they need some help. We are asking you to help raise $10,000 immediately to assist with the approximately $50,000 in adoption fees. Trip 1, scheduled for early July, is when many of the fees are due. We have $700 donated already- Won't you please have your children help Bring Anna Home?> > See attached document for details. Send your tax-deductible pledged donation today to BRAFF, P.O.
