See that thermometer?

Do you see the thermometer on the right sidebar? We're almost there!!! We are 1/4 of the way to our current goal.

I have to tell you the story about the camera:

Last spring another adoptive family was doing a camera giveaway. An expensive kit (valued at somewhere around $700-$900!) I was DETERMINED to win that camera, because I WANTED it. I NEEDED it. (Ok, need/want sometimes gets confused in my mind. LOL)

When I found out I had won the camera I was so excited. Then almost instantly I heard God's voice: "Hang onto it, you will need it later." Aw c'mon! Really??? So I stuck the box up in my closet and pretended to forget about it. Many times I was tempted by that bright yellow box. Many times. Those tutorial CD's have information I want. I have no doubt they could teach me how to use my camera the way it was meant to be used. But I resisted...I left them alone knowing a time was coming that I would need them for more than my own selfish wishes.

And here we are just a few months later. A fundraiser for our OWN adoption.   Please help me pass the word around about this giveaway. It really is an incredibly sweet deal and we need all the help we can get right now getting the word out. We're not going through any big-named non-profit where word spreads like wildfire. You who are reading are the only ones who can help us spread the word. Thank you everyone for all you're doing to help us get L home.


  1. I wanted to win it so bad too when I entered to win it. but now I already bought my own. so if I win yours I am going to use it to fundraise for someone else! that is one powerful camera!

  2. Because of a minor payroll issue I could only donate much less than $20, but I did share your link. I hope you can raise the needed funds fast!
