About Me

Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

living in India.  The news of orphans in India is certainly not unheard of but the 25 children living together as a family (ages 3-23) in this movie make the statistics so much more meaningful.  Their individual stories are ones of abuse, neglect, torture and abandonment.  Their days are filled with begging for money and drug use.  It's almost too terrible to imagine.  Thankfully, there is hope for some of the children through a local children's home called Harvest India.  While watching this movie my heart was broken many times.  I was touched by the way that this make-shift family of children cared for each other.  They took the filmmakers, David Trotter and Shawn Scheinoha, into their lives and shared their stories and circumstances.  David and Shawn even spend the night on the dirty streets with them.  

Mother India is a short movie- only 49 minutes long.  It gets right to the point- touching your heart.  I loved watching the group of children go to Harvest India in hopes of providing a better life for the two youngest members, Polayya and Koteswari.  My greatest wish is that there could be a brighter future for all the children, though.  www.31million.org is the website that tells more about how you can help India's orphans.  Watch this movie and see if you can help make a
