It's Grant Give Away Time......WOO HOO!!


Just as the boy whom I met in the above picture is running with pure joy, that is what I feel like as I run forward with pure joy to bring good news. I'm reminded of Romans 10:15~ How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news. 


It is my pure delight to announce that our t shirt fundraiser for the month of November was a raging success!! It totally amazes me what was accomplished in just one month. Thanks to all of you supporting these adoptive families, we are able to bless them with our profits. We are thrilled to offer a few matching grants from OH to make it even sweeter!

Drumroll please...............

Our top 3 t shirt sellers who all receive matching grants are..........

1. Sanders Family - www.rbabyethiopia.blogspot.com
2. Darin and Jolene Shrock adopting Stella and Benjamin - www.theshrockfamily.blogspot.com
3. Steve and Emily Hauter

CONGRATULATIONS TO THESE TOP 3 FAMILIES!!!

AND.......

Since we saw such an amazing effort on the part of some of the other families and those purchasing on their behalf.....

Well........

We decided to match the TOP 7....and not just the top 3!!!

So an extra CONGRATULATIONS goes out to these following families...

Hauret Family - www.lovingourlincoln.blogspot.com
Love For Liliana - www.redthreadstitches.com
Jody and Alison adopting Caroline - www.lovinmuch.blogspot.com

I want to personally thank all 54 families who participated in this and gave us an opportunity to bless you as you strive to raise funds for your adoptions. You all have wonderful family and friends who got behind you on this to show their support.  We look forward to continuing this in January.  I love giving money away!! It is so much fun!! We are here to help you in any way we can.

So with all that said......We have seen the month of November come to a close and we are so very excited to say that we are giving away.......

Get this..........

A TOTAL OF
$10,720 IN ADOPTION GRANT MONEY!!!

UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Lastly, I have to give a huge shout out THANK YOU to Charlene, my tireless side kick in all this.  She has put in many hours to keep up with totals and emails and packing and shipping, etc, etc,.....I am so blessed to have her on this team.  THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES, CHARLENE!!
