This is the update we have ALL been longing for!


This precious, beautiful, Christian family has sent in their LOI for our sweet boy.  We are asking for LOTS of prayers as the family awaits PA (pre-approval).  I can't wait to share more 

BUT...SERIOUS PRAYERS ARE NEEDED that they are granted PA!!!
I have no doubt how much each of you have grown to love this sweet boy. Please continue to pray...Oh, the joy if they are granted PA...we are beside ourselves with hope!

~BUMPING it ONE last time~
I'm bumping this post last more time!
NECKLACE GIVEAWAY drawing will be on December 11th!
Still time to link up, spread the word, shop, win a Solomon Beads necklace!

Christmas Frenzy is for EVERYONE!!!
You will fit in one of two categories....
1. Fundraising family
2. Supporting family :)'s how it works. All of us LOVE to give Christmas gifts EVEN when times are financially tough. Having just finished the fundraising journey, I keep thinking how can we help other families?!?! Soooo, here's my idea.

~You must be in the process of adopting a child that is NOT already don't have to be matched yet, though. You must be using the funds from your items to directly fund your adoption costs.
~You are selling an item to help raise funds to bring your child home. (no raffles,'s okay if you are currently running a raffle BUT you MUST be selling fundraising items too, like shirts, etc...that is what you need to be linking to)
~If someone is giving your family part of the proceeds for items, like Scentsy, jewelry, THAT WORKS, TOO :)
~You need to post on your blog and/or facebook about our Christmas Frenzy and link back to my blog. This is CRUCIAL...the more awareness we raise the more supporting families we will have.
~Please make sure you create a NEW blog post regarding the Christmas Frenzy...don't link to an old post. BUT don't forget to highlight what YOU are SELLING in that post :)
~I would love for you to become a follower of my blog...just cause I wanna know who my friends are :)
~Add your blog LINK to the BELOW Linky tool (at the bottom of this post)
~Fun idea for fundraising guys can swap items and then have some fabulous items to do a raffle.

~Make your Christmas list and try to support as many families as you can by purchasing their fundraising items as gift. (click on the below links to see the families)
~Please help spread the word for these families!!! Blog, facebook, tweet, and link back to my blog!!!
~I would love for you to become a follower of my blog...just cause I wanna know who my friends are :)

The prize...Winner of the giveaway will receive a Solomon Beads necklace of their choice!!!
~ONE giveaway entry: If you purchase an item from one of the Fundraising Families, leave me a comment! You don't have to tell me what you bought or who you bought it from...just that you helped ;)
~ONE giveaway entry: Raise awareness about our Christmas Frenzy, facebook, tweet, email...leave me a comment that you've raised awareness and you'll get another entry in the giveaway.

Adoption Art....

I don't know about you but I often look for adoption art and have no luck finding anything I like. I'm not looking for a kiddie type picture...I want something beautiful, simple, & elegant to put up on my wall...something that will reflect our hearts and something that will reflect what scripture says about adoption!

Kaden's daddy has designed the most wonderful piece of adoption art and I just HAVE to share it with you! AND the best part is there is still time to order it for Christmas AND you will be helping them bring Kaden home!!! He's also working on a similar piece with a cross in the background...I can't wait to see it!!! How cool would this piece be on your about your hubby's wall at work??

Pictures do not do this justice...I'm going to put mine in a dark frame!!
