Kindle Fire Giveaway for Eli!

Yay!  Giveaway to help bring little man home!

Some people have asked why we are bringing home a child who has a disability.  Why aren't we happy with our "typical children"?

Well, you see, we believe that every child matters. Every child has worth and inestimable value. Every child on the planet is worthy of a family who loves and adores them.  We think that every child is fearfully and wonderfully made—just the way they are.  And we believe that Eli deserves us, and more importantly, we deserve HIM!  We are excited to bring him home and help him start his healing journey!

Adoption is a lovely thing, bringing families to children who need them and children to families who need them!  But, it is very expensive, so this is one way to get some help with the costs related to it!  We are estimating costs to be around $30,000!


Here’s how things will work:

Giveaway will run from April 19th, 2012 to May 7th, 2012

  34. It's the day before I race my first full Ironman for orphans with Down syndrome. I visited your blog today because this all started with your son Eli. I can't help but get teared up looking at your blog and knowing that Eli is going to have such a wonderful family and that I got to play a small part in that. My prayers are with you and your family daily. I pray that Eli will be safe during this waiting period and that if possible, the process will move along quickly. I will be thinking of him often tomorrow during the race.
