Piper’s Friends Playground Fund

July 17, 2008

Hi Friends!  With Piper’s first birthday coming up, we have done a lot of thinking about what is important to us.  We realize how much our friends and family mean to us.  We would have never made it through the past few years without you!  We are having a big birthday party and welcome home celebration for Piper to see her new friends and to meet some that she hasn’t had a chance to meet yet. 

Piper has more of everything than she could possibly need, so we have decided that in lieu of of any gifts for her birthday, we would love for you to please help some of the friends she left behind in Vietnam.

We have started a playground fund for the Relief Center in Vietnam where Piper spent the first nine months of her life. Many of the children living there will not be adopted, and will grow up at this center.

The Relief Center is a place that is very full of love; however there aren’t many toys for the children to play with.  Please consider making a donation to help us build a playground for her friends back at the Relief Center in Vietnam.  It is our wish that her new friends here will join together to help the friends she left behind find joy and the art of play.

Please visit our website for more information.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Darren, Nicole and Piper
