Who doesn't love giveaways? I will tell you who, no one! Absolutely everyone loves free goodies and what better way to win amazing prizes than to donate to a good cause? Well in all honesty the prizes are not free, but they can be yours for as little as $5.00! What is this amazing cause you ask? Well you will be helping to raise money for a deserving family to adopt a little girl from South Korea. This family has dealt with their share of trials and tribulations. They have survived through 6 miscarriages and 2 failed adoption attempts. Adrienne, the mother, writes a blog called Preparing for a Miracle. In her blog she details her life's struggles as well as miracles.
As you know, this past year we lost 2 more babies to miscarriages and now have had 2 failed domestic adoptions. It's hard to believe we've gone through 8 losses since we first started trying to have a baby. Since November, we've felt God tugging us toward adopting a "waiting child.....
Last week, we received the test results from the tests our doctor had requested, and they were normal. We had the answer we had been waiting for. We believe God held baby Soojung for us until now so that we could adopt her as our Lily. She just might be named Lily Soo. :)
So, this week while we were at the beach with Jim's family, I called the adoption agency and spoke with Ms. P, and we have begun the process to adopt our baby girl from South Korea!!
In order to bring Lily Soo home, Adrienne must raise 25,000 dollars! And you can help out by purchasing $5.00 raffle tickets towards donated prizes. She is giving away some really nifty stuff, items ranging from a Canon Rebel XS 10.1 MP Digital XLR Camera to a $25.00 gift certificate for one of a kind No Slippy Hair Clippies! :) Yes, we have donated to this important cause, how could we not? What a beautiful thing to love an orphaned child as your own... it is probably the most gracious gift that a person can give.
