UPDATE! Please help if you can before 4 am CST!

Edited to Add: Since the last update, there has been a NEW matching grant offer in addition to the one below for donations up to $500, which will double the amount to $1,000!  This matching grant challenge is through Project HOPEFUL. Please see details below on how to donate. Thank you so much to all who participate!

Update on Lillian's condition: Praise God Lillian came through surgery this morning and is recovering. The surgeons are pleased that they were able to remove a lot of gunk out of her lungs and are hopeful that she will make a full recovery. Please pray that she will respond to the meds that she is on and that her O2 Sats remain high and that she will be able to be moved out of the PICU to a regular room and eventually discharged. Please continue to pray for healing for Lillian, rest for Diane and the family, and wisdom for the doctors treating Lillian.

Financial Update: The Higbie's are still short approximately $2,500 of what they need for their next agency payment that is due on Tuesday. For it to arrive on time, all donations must be made no later than 4am Monday morning CST, so they can be processed and in the mail in time to arrive on Tuesday. If you can help with this by sharing of the need with others or making a donation of any amount, it would be greatly appreciated!

There is a giveaway ongoing for the Higbie Family. ALL donors will be put into drawings for:  1.Girl's Hawaiian dresses (from Hawaii) 2. Project HOPEFUL necklaces 3. Project HOPEFUL jerseys. Donations can be made through Project Hopeful via:  or through Grace Haven via:  There is a Donate button on the upper right hand side of this blog for Project Hopeful donations. This was just tested a few minutes prior to this post, and it worked, but some users may have experienced difficulties. If there are any issues, please go to the Project Hopeful web site linked to above, and when you make your donation, please reference "Lera" in the comments. For Grace Haven donations, please click on the Donate button and also reference "Lera" when donating. The first $500 matching donation challenge via Grace Haven has been met! However, another donor has offered to match up to $500 also!

Donations made after Monday morning will be held for the Higbie's travel fund or for their next payment due to the agency in August. More fundraisers will be hosted between now and then, so please stay tuned for more announcements.

In honor of Mother's Day, please prayerfully consider donating to the Higbie Family to help them move forward on their journey to bringing beautiful Lera home.
