I'm a married mother of "3 1/2" ;) and the loves of my life are my faith and my family. I've grown in my faith over the last two years since my daughter's adoption, she is the reason why I started this blog in the first place, and I'm so looking forward to watching God move in my heart, and the hearts of others who follow along on our journey towards bringing home one of "the least of these". Special needs adoption is my mission field, whether I'm adopting a child myself, or helping other families get funded, or shouting for waiting children who need families to find them, and I hope you'll come along for the ride and watch what God can accomplish when we say yes to His command to care for the orphan, and go out into the world to be His hands and feet.

Puzzle Fundraiser!!!

I've seen these on a few other blogs and I've always loved the idea, so here goes my attempt at holding a puzzle fundraiser!!!

We are still $7000-$9000 away from being fully funded (depending on airline tickets and other variables) so this fundraiser should get us $1500 closer to our goal!!! Every penny counts and now that I've held my beautiful little girl on my arms, seen her flash that 1,000 watt smile, and heard her infectious little giggle...I NEED to get this adoption fully funded and KNOW without a doubt that NOTHING is standing in the way of bringing Kenzi home!!

Her bedroom theme is Owls, so I thought it would be appropriate to use an owl puzzle so it would look great hanging on her wall!

Here is how it works:

For every $5 donation, your name will be written on one of the 300 puzzle pieces.

Once all 300 pieces are sold, my husband David will put the puzzle together and have it framed in double glass so we can hang it on Kenzi's wall and when she's older, we can show her the other side, and all the names of people who helped bring her home!

Please comment on this post with the name you want written on your puzzle piece! You can make tax deductible donations through our FSP on the right.

Thank you for being a part of bringing our daughter home!
