A good cause

I've been following the adoption journey of a local family, the Fadely's, as they have been in the process of adopting a child to make their family of 5 a family of 6! Obviously, they have a lot of love to give - whenever I have been around the mom of the bunch, Tisra, you can almost see a cloud of joy surrounding her. After two years of trying to adopt through Taiwan, a child popped up on their radar from India and they jumped on the chance! (of course this is overly simplified - to learn more visit their blog, lifetrain) They are currently trying to raise funds to go and get her once all the paperwork is complete, hopefully this summer, and they need help to get there!

Little Dorothy, waiting patiently for her new parents!

The good news is that it is so easy to help! All you have to do is go to their website and for every $10 you donate, you'll be entered to win one of their awesome prizes that have been donated to their cause! Not only could you win a nice Canon Rebel camera or a Wii, but there may also be some Freshie & Zero and Charm Star goodies along with some other awesome handmade items. Please take a moment - $10 is not much at all and would be such a blessing to help them get closer to their goal to bring their sweet little daughter home from India!
