A Cute Girl in A Cute Hat To Save Olive!

Want to see a very cute girl in a very cute hat? The hat is hand-made by a lovely young woman named Ashley who is adopting a beautiful little girl with Down syndrome. The little girl's name is Olive and she is waiting for her Mama to bring her home in just a few weeks from an Eastern European orphanage. Olive's Mama made these hats to help raise funds to bring her home. Ok, enough talk...Here she is.....

Get Ready......

Keep going.....It will be worth it...

Ok, here she is in her new hat....

Man, am I in love!
