This is great

A few weeks ago we were contacted by Nicole who lives in South Carolina and is in the process of adopting from Kazakhstan. She works for a radio station and created this spot:

You must listen! How awesome is this! The commercial is now playing on one station in SC every hour and they will add it to another station next month with the hopes of getting it played in more cities! Thanks so much for your support Nicole!

From Kaz

We wanted to share this picture with you -

Anna recently traveled to Kazakhstan and brought a donation box with her. She repots back that her box was very well received by the orphanage director. Thank you Anna!

If you are traveling soon and would be interested in taking a box with you, please contact us at

By donating a little luggage space, you are making a big impact in Kaz!

Thank you this week to the following families for your donations-

The Blackburn family (AL)
The Fordham Family (NY)
The Hoffa Family (PA)

One year ago -

One year ago this week Stacy and I embarked on a journey that would forever change our lives.  With one phone call, and many, many name ideas, Two Hearts began.  Stacy was ready for a change in her life and wanted to take action.  My goal since high school has been to run a non profit organization for orphans.  Put those two desires together and nothing would get in our way.  We heard the Lord's call and here we are, one year later totally amazed at how a little can do a lot.  

We are thankful to each and every person who has donated an item, their time, their hard earned money, and their prayers to assist us in making our dream a reality.  With your help we have collected over 20,000 items to send to Kazakhstan.  We are thankful to the families who have donated their luggage space to bring donations.  

It is unbelievable to see how much work all of us have done in one short year.  You trusted us, embraced our cause and made us stand in awe many many times.  The true and genuine giving we have witnessed is overwhelming.

Thank you seems like it is not enough.  Know that we mean it from the very bottom of our hearts and the deepest parts of our souls.

This week we would like to thank the following families for their donations:

The Bell Family (TN)
The Birnett Family (VA)
The Blackburn Family (AL)
Teresa Craft (SC)
Susan Helms Daley (MA)
Cathy Williams (FL)

Also, please don't forget about our raffle.  Here is a picture of one of the items you can win.
