Updates and Great News

Digory, close upThe great news–so much has come in from the fundraiser that we are very, very close to having a start date for building our home!
In the meantime, largely due to the generous volunteer labor of some friends, we have water, septic, and electricity.  We are so thankful.
(We also have bluebirds in the birdhouse the kids made several years ago!      Pictures in the photo gallery on this website.)
A friend of ours has started a GoFundMe account for us, to make it even easier for people to help us have a safe home by winter.  It is here:

We appreciate so much all who are sharing, giving, praying, and donating time, energy, and effort.  It is hard to describe the feelings of hope (and tears) that well up when thinking we actually might have a safe place to live this winter.  I can’t even imagine it.

About Christa Upton

I am a wife and mother of three children ages 11, 14, and 18. I used to be a stay-at-home mom (teaching piano & dance, volunteering, etc). From 2007 to 2010, I suffered accidental Toxic Injury (also called Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or MCS). MCS has had major impact on our family, but the forced time in bed has given me time to write. So far, I have published 4 children's books (2 in e-book format on Kindle, one in Print-on-Demand at CreateSpace, and one printed by a local printer). Sometimes I miss my old life, but I love writing for children!
