As many of you know adoption can be expensive. It's amazing how high the costs can sometimes be and yet it is so worth it! Worth all the extra time, emotions and expenses. There are many people who are called to adopt but like most of us simply do not have the 1,000's of dollars lying around to pay for it. There are some grants out there for those who qualify and are lucky enough to get them and then there are tons of fundraising things that folks are doing. This is one of them.
I do not know this family, but I learned about this campaign from my sister-in-law's blog, 4URuthie. My sister-in-law's blog is worth a look. I love reading her posts about her spiritual revelations and growth and of course getting to see what her amazingly cute kids are doing and saying is important to me too. She bought some of these cute bracelets and gave away one on her blog. I thought that was an amazing way to help this Mom, at Orphaned NO More, in getting the funds she needs, but also spreading the word about the campaign. So I bought three bracelets and I am giving away one to a lucky winner and follower of my blog!
Here is the beautiful bracelet you can win! This one is Gypsy Rose.
