Be a Part of Something Beautiful {Giveaway}

UPDATE: Liz (comment 18) & Kirsten (comment 32) have been randomly selected as the winners of this giveaway.

I don’t believe every Christian in the world is supposed to adopt.

But I believe we are all called to do something to care for the poor and defend orphans.

One amazing way to do that is by giving financially or shopping a worthy cause.

The Adopt Shoppe has been a long-time advertiser on my blog, with the purpose of the shop to help bring one little baby boy home.

I’m happy to announce that is happening very soon! The Adopt Shoppe will be closing soon, so here’s your last chance to help support a great cause.

From The Adopt Shoppe FB page: With our impending travel to Taiwan to pick up Maddox, I’ve decided to shut down my shop for an indefinite period of time on Saturday, August 25, 2012. WeΒ are still $2,000 short and I will still be taking orders in my shop through next Friday. They will be shipped out within 14 days of placing your order.

In celebration of one more orphan finding his forever home, today I’m giving away two $25 gift certificates to The Adopt Shoppe.

Beautiful freshwater pearl and hemp bracelets:

I love this inspirational print in the Shoppe:

Step into someone’s story and make a difference today. Welcome Max home in the comments and that will be your entry!

This giveaway ends on Thursday.

    We serve a great and awesome God. That He would make a precious baby on the other side of the world and then provide a way for Maddox to find his forever home right here in Missouri. Wow! Praises to God! And God’s blessing to your family.

    “Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me; When as yet there was not one of them.” Ps. 139: 16
    Welcome, Maddox, to the family God ordained for you before He ever created you!

    Jennfer Yzbick says

    Welcome home Maddox! You are such a precious boy!

    What a blessing, what a joy and miracle to consider that God created you in part, to raise this precious young boy. I pray for wisdom, unity and strength for you and your husband. I pray for blessings over your household and joy in the lives of all your children. I pray that your adoption would demonstrate the love God has for us and show others how WE have been adopted into Christ’s family.

    Blessings to you and your family.
    Know that you are an encouragement to many.

    Before your parents chose you, God chose them for this special task of loving you forever – and most important, he chose YOU to be His for always. Blessings and peace and love little one. You are precious in His sight.
