Right now we need. We need YOU!! We need you in droves.
1. We need you on your knees praying for God's hand in every tiny detail of the adoption process. I feel selfish asking for you to pray for merely ours. This is just ONE adoption. There are hundreds in our agency, thousands worldwide. Why can't there be millions? This crisis would be over if there were millions. Pray for millions...millions who will come to the forefront of this orphan crisis with battle armor to fight this thing head on...millions who would make room for the needy, the lonely, the oppressed, the abandoned. Pray that somehow, some way that the adoption process would be swift without compromising the safety of the children and the ethics behind the process.
2. We need your support. MANY of you have supported us already, to which we are so grateful!! Without you we could not do this and we would not be this far into this process. We thank you for your sacrifice for our children! If you have not yet taken the opportunity to support us, there are a few ways. We have t-shirts...OVER A HUNDRED t-shirts that need to move. Summer is coming! They are short sleeve! Here they are...
We have a slew of large and x-large sizes. We have a couple of smalls and Mediums left. I mean that literally. There are only two or three of each of those left. And, we have two 12 month sizes left. So even your little squish could have one! If you are interested in buying one, you can email Marcus or myself, or you can simply click the Paypal button on our blog's home page. You can pay through that method easily and instantly. Be sure to include a note that the payment is for a t-shirt, the size desired and your shipping address! If you are local, we will hand deliver.
3. We are also involved in, what began as a fundraising effort for our adoption, but has become so much more. Last year I bcame a local Noonday Collection Ambassador. Noonday is a company that seeks to lift the vulnerable out of poverty by creating economic opportunity for them...better put, a job! We buy hand-made accessories (jewelry, scarves, handbags etc) and sell them in the United States, questionably the world's biggest and best marketplace for goods. Our massive wealth here in the states generates billions, maybe even trillions of dollars per year. If we decided to be more conscious with our purchases, or even decided to use our purchasing power for good, poverty in our world would cease to exist. Men, women and babies would not starve to death, die from easily treatable diseases and families would not become broken. We could change the world! Noonday has changed the lives of thousands in the short 3 years it has been doing this missionary work. Be a part of it! By becoming a voice for these artisans and sharing their story, their opportunities grow. Host a trunk show in your home, church or office. Spread the word and create economic opportunity for the needy. It only takes a little time and makes an enormous impact. Get your best girls, in fact ALL of your girls, together for a couple of hours to pour over beautiful pieces of jewelry made in places like Uganda, India, Guatamala, Peru, Eithiopia, Ecuador, Vietnam, Haiti and Chile.
