Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

Wanna be a part of something BIG???

Hey all!  Remeber back HERE when I told you about two precious little girls waiting for their families?  
Well one sweet little girl is getting one of my very favorite families in the whole world!

They are a model family that inspire Marc and I to be better parents.  They lead their children with faith and a strength that you can just feel in their presence.  We admire them for so many things but right now we are in awe of them stepping out once again to adopt this beautiful little girl when everything of this world would have told them that they should play it safe.  Not step out. Not commit financial suicide but commiting to adopt when finances are tough.....but they didn't listen to the norm... They stepped up big when they decided to bring Pearl home.  Now they are holding a raffle to try to raise funds for the orphanage and travel fees.   I would love to see some of us rally around this family.  They are so deserving.

Here's the cool part!  One family has already stepped up and purchased TWO ipads for them to raffle off!  How cool is that.  So every penny they make on raffle tickets goes straight to adoption costs...not purchasing the TWO ipads!!!!
The deal is $2 for 1 ticket OR $10 for 6 tickets.  Drawing will be December 1st.  It is a chance to win an ipad, but it is also a chance to stand up with this family and support them in bringing home their daughter.  One less orphan waiting!!!!!  Visit their website, by cliking here and you can donate in the upper right corner....It's really easy and every dollar counts!  Thank you friends!
