In Need Of Help
Though I hate to do this, I have to. I need to ask to help. Unfortunately, we have to pay $10 a day to stay at the Ronald McDonald house, on top of that we have all of our regular bills at the house. On top of that Cody broke 2 of his teeth and he does not have dental insurance so we have to pay more than $500 out of pocket to fix his bottom tooth. His top tooth is chipped, but it isn't a big deal the bottom tooth is cracked down into the gum and is a big deal- it is painful for him. Kevin took off of work for 2 weeks when Cami went into the hospital and it was not paid. So, we are up a creek. I do not have a paypal account anymore. If you are able to help (even $10 will help tremendously) you can mail a check/money order to the Ronald Mcdonald house at

Ronald McDonald House
1315 Barbara Jordan Blvd
Austin, Tx 78723 to donate using a credit card

or call


you can write on the check/money order my name Christy Faglie Room 28 or give them my name & room number when you call.

If you are able to donate directly to them, that will help me tremendously- that way we won't owe them so much. We still owe them $80.00 from when we were here when Cami was born and as of now we owe them another $120.00. So, we are up to $200.00 now. I don't work- I stay at home with the kids and since Kevin was off for 2 weeks unpaid and any money I do have has to go to get Cody's tooth fixed- we are broke. We are not going to have a very good Christmas this year. Cody & Cami will be taken care of though- family has made sure of that. Kevin and I do not need anything- we just worry about having our bill here paid.

I am sorry to ask for anything, I know this is a horrible time of year to ask for anything- I know my readers have their own problems to deal with and their own families to buy for. However, if you do have anything extra and can help- I would appreciate it.

They moved Sissy off of the strong ventilator that collapsed her lung today- they were worried that it may collapse her other one and that would be devastating. So, Sissy is now on the regular ventilator. That is both good and bad- good because it won't collapse her remaining good lung and they can also give her breathing treatments with this one and bad because she is de-satting with the weaker ventilator. I feel like I am on a roller coaster. However, it isn't about me- it is about that little girl who has been through so much in her 4 months & 2 days on this earth. Camryn is a little fighter, she is a strong little girl.

Thanks for reading & God Bless you all

Buy now buttons on our stores ARE WORKING NOW

Our buy now buttons on our stores are up and working right again. So if you have tried to make a purchase on either of our stores, you can go back now. They all should be working now. If you have any problems ,PLEASE e-mail us at jngcampbell9@msndotcom.. We are so sorry about this. We have been wondering why our fundraiser was not going well at all. I am so busy i forgot to re-check each button..
I have been flying by the seat of my pants with trying to get everything done.Plus with our newest daughter Chrissie , she is into everything she can get her hands on. So we are working hard to get her to listen and do as she is told. Boy is that a chore.. She has a mind of her own and prefers to do what ever she wants..She likes to pound on everything , and has broken at least one window in her bedroom. Dad put plexey glass up over the windows now. Chrissie bangs on the floors and tables and what ever is in her reach. So even after parenting many,many,many children you get a new one that has many new challenges. So we are all learning new ways to help Chrissie deal with these issues... We love her and want her to have a very productive life. Ok enough on Chrissie. Now for Dez and Andrew, you know that children with FAS/FAE do not deal well with changes. So this time of year is very hard for them and us also. They have so many out burst and tantrums that it really takes up loads of our time. We try to keep things the same ,but with the holidays it is impossible to do . So we are keeping them home as much as possible . One of us does the running for shopping and then stay up late to shop on-line. Boy will i be glad when January gets here. Yes, i really do love Christmas and the true meaning. What i do not like is the new version of Christmas, the i want everything there is out there. I really do not think children need and should have everything they should want.
Ok , even Bella has been acting up . She has bitten two of children in the last couple days. Bella has not bitten anybody in along time. Enough said . We have much still to do to get ready for the holidays.

Please if you can spare a few dollars to help little man Srecko to be able to have enough funds to come home soon to his adoptive family. You can donate right to him with the chip in or if you still need to buy gifts we have some really nice fleece blankets or wood signs still for sale... Just click on the buttons on the side bar and they will take you to our stores .

Thank you so much !!!!

Our biggest Fundraiser yet !!!!

We have been working over time to have enough Fleece blankets and wood signs to have a huge fundraiser for our little buddy Srecko aka. Scott. Remember that little guy, how could you forget. We talk about him a lot.. He is always on our minds!!! He is needed 1.500.00 dollars for his part of fees to come to the USA with his new family.. He needs a plane ticket, and medical exam, and his visa approval from the US Embassy to be able to travel to the USA.. We are having a big sale on our adoption fundraising stores !!! We have three stores to get ready , so it has taken many hours to get everything ready ..

Right now we are having our biggest fundraiser yet!!!! We are helping a very sweet family to raise the funds to be able to travel and bring their new son home. You see they are adopting a third child from E.E. and fell a little short to be able to travel to pick him up. This little guy is 7 ~ yes that is right he is seven and he has been waiting seven~7~ long years for a family to come and get him. He has seen many new families come and get their new child and he watches as they leave . Waiting for his family to come and get him. This little guy has C.P.~ Cerebral Palsy and he really could use some therapies to help him. Please help us in helping The Severson family to be able to raise the much needed funds to bring their son home... 25 % of every sale of a BLANKET OR WOOD SIGN will go to the Severson family fund to help bring home their son. His travel expenses are around 1,500.00 dollars to get his plane ticket , medical and visa for their son to leave the country he was born in. We also will have a chip in set up if you would just like to donate to help the Severson family....
Thank you so much for shopping Mama Bears Fleece Blankets !!!

Thank you so much for shopping The Campbell's Country Store !!!!
Also we are having this fundraiser on our E-Bay Store also~ But on the E-Bay Store you will be donating two times..One time will donate 25% to the Severson family and then there is 10% for Breast Cancer or Reece;s for every blanket sold.
So if you would like to do a double donation for the holidays, you can shop our E-BAY Store @
Visit us HERE!

You can also donate by the chip in on the side of our blog, it will go right in the Severson family fund for them to travel to get their son...You can also visit The Severson Family Blog @

We will be having the fundraiser starting today until Dec 20th, 2010. We sure hope and pray we will have all his funds needed to purchase his plane ticket and pay his other fees and maybe have a little left over for him to have a very nice dinner in his first country before he gets on that plane for the USA... BOY WILL WE BE VERY HAPPY WHEN WE CAN POST THAT OUR LITTLE BUDDY HAS ENOUGH MONEY TO BE ABLE TO COME HOME TO HIS FAMILY!!! That would really make us so happy for Christmas!!! All i want for Christmas is Srecko to have enough funds to go home to his new family... Please God help us raise the much needed funds , very very soon!!!
Thank you all so much,
Gary & Jody

Orphans Prayer


Each night before I go to bed I fold my hands and bow my head
Praying for a family and the day she will come for me I ask God
to watch over my friends at the orphanage The place that I call home
Wishing we find families and rooms of our very own.
I finish my prayers and climb into bed
Hoping that God heard what I said
My prayers usually turn out to be my dreams at night
Hoping they will be standing there when I wake to the morning light
One very special morning, I will hear their call
I jump out of bed and run down the hall!
Is it them, Is it them, is that why they've called my name?
Running I hear them shout "It's them, it's them, they finally came!"
Have all my prayers been answered, have all my dreams come true
There they are in front of me, Oh Mama & Papa! Oh Mama & Papa!!
Is it really you?

"Yes, it is my darling, We've come to take you home,"
"We will love, protect and cherish and you will never be alone."
Mama & Papa looks at me so differently a look so new to me,
They touch me so gently, just as I dreamed it would be.
As I look into their eyes I watch them fill with water,
They embrace me and whisper, "I love you so my daughter".
They take my hand and hold it tight, I will never
let it go, I hold with all my might. Hand in hand we walk together,
No one needs to speak; we know this is forever.
And through our journey when we finally meet each other,
She will have found her dream and I will have found my mother & father.

Yes, i know this talks about a girl, but we think of a little guy. He really needs to get to have his own family. A mommy and daddy of his own.. A sister and brother also.

I am so happy for our family and friends , that we could all be together for Thanksgiving. We had really awesome food and lots of family time. We are greatful for all of the food and family...

But i really still think about all the orphans , that we got to see while adopting Bella...One little guy still stands out.. Do you all know who that is??? Yes that would be Srecko!!! We really want to see this little guy be able to come home to his family... We are working on a fundraisier to get his part of the adoption part paid for him to get home .. That would be his airfare, medical and visa. We will be posting our fundraisier very soon. He needs 1,500. to get his ticket and medical and visa to come to the USA...Yes , that is all he needs for his part to be paid for . What a gift that would be for Christmas!!! For him and for our family , so we would know that his is home with his family ~The Severson Family~

Check back soon for details!!!!

Happy Gottcha day and 2 years of being a Campbell !!

This is of Bella , when she was still at her first home.. So tiny , We so loved getting new pictures of Bella as we waited to go and get her. She is such a blessing in our family. We all love her so much.

Bella and Natalie going for a walk around the house. Bella is the big auntie of Natalie. They are so cute!!!

Dixie : the kiddos O.T therapist , working with all three of the kiddos at once. Bella is still working hard to learn new things. Now that she has Chrissie here with her , they find lots of trouble.

Big sister Deztany:: Teaching her little siblings.. All the big kiddos take turns working with their little siblings. THEY LOVE TO SEE THEM LEARN !!

Bella walking all around the house, by herself.. She is doing so awesome. Now she will be able to keep up with the big kiddos. Bella has been a Campbell now for 2 years!! We love that she was able to join our family.. Bella has worked very hard to learn many new things in the last two years. She gets more attention than she probably thought was ever possible.. There is always somebody there to help her learn , and to help keep her and Chrissie out of trouble.

I would do it all over again to get Bella:: I had never been on an airplane, that is until the trip to get Bella. We new from the start that Bella was severely delayed , but it never made any difference to us. We loved her from the start and we love her so much more now that she has been home for two years... She is like a sponge, she is soaking up all the information she can. Bella is very smart, she just needed her family to help bring it all out.

If you feel that nudge , that calling , or what ever you want to call it. That feeling that your family is not complete, go for it. Step out and adopt an orphan, it is so worth it. Our Bella has been such a joy to our family. It sure was worth that time away from our other children. We were so worried to leave the children at home. But the time went quick and soon we were home with our new daughter. Bella has been such a snuggle bear , she loves to get up with you and have you rub her face and snuggle you. We so enjoy holding her and snuggling her.

Every child deserves a family to grow up in. Can you adopt an orphan ? If you can they are so worth all the work of getting the paperwork done and the travel time away from home AND YOUR OTHER CHILDREN. YES, WE MISSED OUR FAMILY WHEN WE WERE GONE.But we all did wonderful.

I will never forget the first picture we saw of Bella. That was our Princess waiting for us to come and get her. It never mattered what they said was wrong with our Bella , we were going to get her home with us forever. We were told from the very begining that Bella was very delayed, and our we sure we want to adopt her. Yes, we still wanted to adopt our little Bella, she was our little Princess from the first time we saw her. We our so so happy that we stepped out of our comfort zone to travel and get our little Bella home.
Happy 2 years of being a Campbell ~Bella Faith ~ We love you dearly !!!!

Mom , Dad , and all of your family..

And The Winner Is

Congratulations Jody aka Mom on a great honor. Jody was chosen as the 2010 woman of distinction this evening out of a group of 11 nominees. The local newspaper holds this contest each year to recognize outstanding women in our area for their different accomplishments. She was nominated by our friend Denise back in October for being such a special person and caring for everyone she comes in contact with.We all felt confident that she would be chosen as the winner, but being the humble person she is she was hoping someone else would be chosen. You are very special to all of us and we are so proud of you. Congratulations from the whole crew
