I have found a new passion in life... telling ANYONE who will listen about adoption and sharing info about adoptive families fundraisers. So, here are a few more families to introduce you to. I hope these links are encouraging and show you to "normal" families, just like you and I, who have NO idea WHERE the money will come from, but trust God and follow the call, the CONVICTION to adopt. There are 147 million orphans in the world; what is the life of one one...nothing but a drop in the bucket... yet it is a life created in HIS image for HIS glory! And to think WE will be the ones who truly receive a gift.. a child, a life to love and raise! The reality is, adoption, especially international adoption isn't free... and in most cases, MONEY is the only thing that stands between an orphan and a home.... so here are a few families working hard to come up with that money which stands between them and their child!
I LOVE this family! Daleea and her husband have a son, adopted from Russia and a daughter, adopted from China. They are now in the process of adopting a little girl, who has special needs, from China. She makes beautiful bracelets; 3000 bracelets sold will be her daughters "ticket" home. Go here to see her lovely site.
Like my great blog design? I totally cannot take credit for it. Jen over at "The Art of Living Designs" is amazing. And, what do the profits from her fabulous work fund???? Their adoption from China! It is so neat to think the profit she made designing this site goes to help her little one in China, yet the work she did in this site will benefit a child in Ethiopia.... I love how it all fits together! If you want to customize your blog, check out her work!
If you have not yet check out Leigh's site, go here to do so.... But please don't bid bid on the "Africa Moma" Giveaway ... I really want that one :)he,he. She has such great stuff on this weeks bid!
