Help to Adopt

Hey guys!  Christie from Satisfaction Through Christ is about to adopt a little girl, and she needs some help.
One of the things I absolutely love about blogging is the community we create.  We are more than just online friends or bloggers.  We are real people living real lives.  We are on our own journey, but we need others to come along side of us and helping us out every now and again.  Just like you do.
Here’s my chance to come alongside another blogger and have a little teeny-tiny part in her story.

Please read and then follow the links and read some more.  By donating towards her adoption fund, you will changing her family and also the life of a little girl.  That’s a lot of change for $10.

***************************************

Friends, I have been so overwhelmed by the generosity shown towards our family over the last few days.  The response has been amazing and I’m at a loss for words on how to say thank you.  I’m praying that the Lord will give me the proper words at some point.  Words will never be enough, though.

For the full story and to read our adoption announcement post, visit here!

Today has been an emotional day, but I now know {without a doubt} that the Lord has called us specifically to bring this baby girl home.

Last night we had a $10 donation come in from a friend.  I emailed her thanking her for her donation and she quickly expressed sadness at not being able to give more.  I told her that every little bit helps…and it does.
If you’re anything like me, all you’ve seen is $35,000 and thought, “There’s no way I can help with that.
I get it and I know — it’s so much bigger than any one of us but it’s not too big for God!

This morning the Lord laid an idea on my heart and I’ve fought Him all day about presenting it to you, but I know that He hasn’t called us to walk this road alone.  So, I’m excited to present our biggest fundraising effort yet….

Operation {Adoption} 10:10:1
10 Days: $10: 1 Baby Girl
Goal = $10,000
 
Our adoption agency has given us 15 days to raise the initial $10,000 we need.  The remainder will be due in increments until she is born.  But for now, we are praying for 1,000 friends to come alongside of us and donate just $10 each.  
 
I know $35,000 is overwhelming.  
 
I know $10,000 is overwhelming.
 
But $10 is a little less overwhelming.
 
So, would you commit to partnering with us and would you commit to praying for us?
 
If so, simply use the PayPal donation widget below (if you don’t see the PayPal widget you can donate here, too).

Please leave a comment with your first name.  I’d love to use each of your names in a special project for our little girl; something she can always have to remember how many people helped bring her home.
 
And, if you’re so moved, would you share this post?  On your blog, on social media, through email?  May the LORD be glorified in it all…
