100 for 100


That's right, YOU!  (and any one else you can think of who might have a soft spot for adoption)  We're rolling out the "One Hundred for $100" drive - which in short terms is a goal to seek pledges from 100 families to donate $100 to see Keira get home.  

We can do this!  (that's what I'm telling myself when it feels hopeless)

Aside from the Massive Rummage Sale taking place locally, on November 7th, we're also reaching out to those able to help through financial provision.  If just 100 families can pledge $100 - we will have been able to reach over half our goal.  Seems so small in those terms...but it's a huge mountain right now.

We could not have predicted the financial circumstances that would have fallen our way - but I remind myself that God is bigger than all of that!  And I'm not going to let it get me down...I just can't!  It seems like we're getting pummeled from several sides right now - but I can't fall into believing that I have to give up on Keira.  We have not come this far just to give up now that we're in the final steps of such a long journey.

Will you help us?  I know it's a lot to ask, and a sacrifice in these times for any family.  We understand, fully!   

I'm amazed at the generosity of people - those I've met and those I haven't.  It humbles my heart, and makes me so grateful that people are still moved with compassion to make a difference for one little family...for one little girl.  A WHOPPING BIG HUGE thank you to those who have already contributed time/rummage items/ and even financial donations.  We are humbled deeply by your gracious generosity! (actually, there are no even that doesn't seem enough...)

Remember we have a "Donate" button for Keira's special paypal account in the top right of the blog.  It's safe and easy - and I must believe me...these funds will be used DIRECTLY to bring our little gal home.

There are not quite enough "thank you's" I could ever issue to make up for the support of others, no matter what form.  But I hope each of you know how much it means to us to know that people are rallying to help us get Keira out of that orphanage and home where she belongs.  

If you have a blog, would you consider copying this picture and linking it back to this website -  and helping us by spreading the word?

Hay girl! Check your account-- #1 $100 done!!!!

Big hugs and we are praying for your little girl. I told my hubby last night that if we were adopting Mia now, with this economy, I have no idea how we could have done it. We paid for all our adoption with an equity line so if it were now, we would be high and dry. So, enough of us band together and give a little, it will be alot and we will get your little girl home.

I love your blog and I have enjoyed reading it and would love to help but my husband was laid off 7 1/2 months ago and still does not have a job so I am sorry..I am praying for you and hoping you raise your funds. We have 2 boys that we adopted from Korea and I know it is a huge expense.
