The Big Push

I want to show you what my children have done and how excited they are to bring their brothers home from Ethiopia.

My sons have taken up making survival bracelets in order to sell to help raise funds for our adoption. This was brainstormed by my eldest and he took the time and effort to learn how to make them. We are providing one for every $10 donation that is made on the blog. They can custom make them to your wrist size and your color preference. They can make solid color bracelets or bracelets with two of your favorite colors. We have many colors, more than what you see in the below pictures. If we don't have the colors you want, we can get it. Just indicate the color (s) and wrist size when you encounter the message prompt when you donate on our blog. Here is a picture of what they look like:

My daughters, on the other hand, have taken their creativity and decided they would make stationary to help fund raise. It is gorgeous and I am beyond impressed at the final product. Each pack includes eight decorated note cards with envelopes. We are offering these with every $10 donation. In the message prompt, you will need to choose if you want the stationary OR a survival bracelet. I am not sure the following picture does their art work justice, but believe me, the designs they have come up with are amazing and beautiful!

Also, we are holding a benefit for our adoption at the
Cary Towne Center Chik-fil-A on Tuesday, October 25th from 5pm to 8pm. The owner, a dear friend, has been very generous in letting do this and he is donating 20% of the proceeds from this evening to our adoption. In addition, there will be a raffle for a year's worth of chicken sandwiches. So, to all my local peeps, it would mean the world to us if you would come join us for good food and fellowship. To see all your faces will bring us to my knees in absolute gratitude for your support in bringing our boys home!


  1. we'll be at chick fil a . . .no doubt about it!
    I'll get in touch today about ordering some bracelets, too. I can't wait to see what God will do in helping you bring these beautiful boys home!!!!!

  2. I just stopped by from Nikki's blog and wanted to let you know that our family would love to swing by Chick fil a next Tuesday. My boys don't finish soccer practice until 7.30 but I am hoping we can make it there by 8.00. We are adopting from Uganda and would love to meet you! Your children are very artistic!
