There are ALWAYS things we can do to help our friends.....ALWAYS. It's just a matter of being creative and motivated. I have made a friend...never met her in person, but through blogging (it's such an amazing thing). You can read more about their story HERE
The Mama bought one of my t-shirts for our fundraiser when we were working on bringing Aregash home. I felt the need to reply and ask her how she came upon our shirts.....and a lovely friendship began. We have emailed back and forth about our stories/struggles in the adoption process and she has been a sounding board when I needed it.

I had already promised my left-over shirts to a local family to help with their fundraiser, and I was having a hard time coming up with an idea since we live soo far away from each other. Soooooo.....I remembered I still have 4 Ugandan necklaces left and I am going to give the proceeds to them. If you would like to purchase one to help their family you can click the "Add to Cart" button on the right side of this page and select the dark or light beads.
AND I am on my way to my friend Melanie's house to try to sell some furniture (and a computer) at her rummage sale....this too will help my friend and her family bring their 3,4, & 5 year old boys home to their new family. This is AMAZING stuff people!! These little boys are soooo excited to meet their new mommy and daddy and all of their siblings! I can't wait to see them all united! This happened really fast and there is a big-time fee of $20,000 that needs to be paid right away. I know what it's like and so do many of you. But we all know that He will provide what they need and I am soo humbled to help, even if it's only a little bit.
If you feel the desire to help this beautiful family you can go to their blog page and purchase a t-shirt or just donate.
