Please Consider Helping These Families!

Adeye at No Greater Joy Mom (who I just love!) is trying to help about 20 adopting couples bring their children home. There are some urgent cases, and some where the financial mountain is so huge it's discouraging. So many of these couples are alone in this journey. It is sad to say, but very few churches "get it" concerning adopting, or they don't want to set a precedent in their congregations, and so they do nothing. I hate that. We have experienced that as well. One day I a going to write a post regarding my heart on that issue as well. But not for here....

No I just want you to go to Adeye's blog and view the couples up there who desperately need help. Then consider donating $10 or more. Every little bit helps. You may think, what can $10 do? But believe me it all adds up and immeasurably helps. It might help offset the cost of a plane ticket, or it may help pay visa fees, or passport fees for the new child.

If you donate a minimum of $10 you are also eligible for a drawing at Adeye's blog for a $250 Walmart gift card. I also have a friend who is on there who is trying to adopt a last chance orphan in Russia. He is 16 years old, and will be on the streets soon. He has an 8 year old brother who they are also trying to bring home. The amount they have to raise to adopt these two is staggering. Over $65,000. Crazy! She is also offering a $50 gift card to Target for anyone who donates a minimum of $10 to their adoption. So if you choose to donate to her family, you can leave a comment on her blog, to be in the drawing for a $50 Target gift card.

Whatever you do today, take some time to go to Adeye's blog and view the couples that are on there... and consider helping in whatever way you can!
