Leaving On A Jet Plane for China! -Guest Author: Sara Heinz

Andra asked me to do a guest post about  the Leigh's Blankies that are going with us to China!  Andra is a dear friend, and when she told me about the blankets she was sewing for children in memory of Leigh Ann, I wanted to help in any way I could.   It warms my heart to remember Leigh Ann in this way.  She was such a great friend and never failed to make me laugh and give me perspective on things in life that really matter.  Leigh Ann loved Jesus, her family, children, and had a such a servant heart.   Leigh's Blankies is such an awesome representation of something she would have been excited about. 

"Say China!!!!"  Here is a picture of our two boys opening up the much anticipated box of Leigh's Blankies to go with us to China.  Jarrod and I will be on an airplane in less than 48 hours on our way to our daughter, Samantha!  We will have the privilege to go to New Day Foster Home in Beijing and hand deliver blankies to the children who are still waiting for their forever families. 

Here is a picture of our daughter - I can't wait to snuggle her in her very own Leigh's Blankie!
We are so grateful for this opportunity to show the love of Christ in a practical way to little ones on the other side of the world! 
Love, Sarah and Jarrod Heinz
