So as many of you know we are adopting a little boy from Eastern Europe and we are so very excited about this! But as many of you also know International adoption is not cheap, after all is said and done we will be paying close to $30,000.00 for our little boy, who by the way is completely worth it:) And seriously which one of us would not pay even more to save the lives of our children? Some of you may be asking yourselves, "Why are they adopting if they don't have the money?". Well we believe that God is calling us to bring this beautiful, precious little boy into our family and He has asked us to step out in faith. We already know that He has gone before us and has prepared the way. And we also believe, and know from past experiences, that when He asks you to do something the best thing to do is listen and obey. I also believe that He wants to be glorified throughout this process and wants to see His beautiful bride, His body of believers be His hands and feet. And what better way than to come along side fellow believers and play a part in bringing home this sweet angel.
I am in the process of setting up a fundraiser for our little guy here on my blog and am asking for your help. If you or anyone you know of would like to help us by donating an item to our fundraiser it would be greatly appreciated. Items could be anything from gift cards, to services, or to those who sell their wares on Etsy or are just creatively gifted. I am thinking of hosting it mid-April, so if you could let me know soon that would be awesome!! You can email or Facebook me whatever's easier. So spread the word and let me know. I love you guys and am so thankful for all of you and I know he will be too:)
And just a side note I had to take our pay pal button down because Reece's Rainbow was having so many hits and donations that their server could not keep up! And having the donation boxes on all the blogs was too much for it to handle. Isn't that a wonderful problem to have, the situation these children are facing is being spread far and wide and people are realizing the huge need for these kids! I LOVE IT!!!!! Our donation box will be back soon but if you would like to donate to our adoption just click on Sergey's picture on the sidebar and it will take you to our Family Sponsor Page. Thanks again:)
