The images are heartbreaking….
….like scenes from a movie that one would hope could never happen in real life….
I find myself glued to the news every time I am in front of a television and each day the images seem to get worse and worse.
The death count rises, the nuclear plant has more explosions, loved ones are still missing, towns and lives have been washed away forever. I sit at home on Baby Monday feeling completely helpless. My heart goes out to all of those people who have lost loved ones, those who don’t know where to begin looking for theirs, and all of the lives that have forever been altered by natures catastrophic events in Japan. Seeing as I cannot be there to offer my help I want to try and do my part from afar and I hope those of you reading our blog will to!

I cannot even begin to imagine the devastation that the people of Japan are experiencing at this very moment. You can never be prepared for something of this magnitude…. but people around the world can help them rebuild with small donations!
