A year in review from Facebook...

2014 Year in Review from Facebook on Vimeo.

This one is a lot better. Than this one.

A YouTube year in review

Before you read on, I’d love it if you would consider supporting Child’s I with a small monthly donation. They are an amazing small organisation working in Uganda to help abandoned babies be reunited with their families. If no family members can be traced, then Child’s I find a foster or adoptive family. Child’s I are small and really passionate about what they do. I love them.
