we love african babies

Sep 14, 2009 by

no, but seriously, though.

and not just african babies, but babies from all over the world who need loving parents to take them into their home and love them to bits and bits. my lovely blogger friend, leigh, and her husband, gray, are raising money to adopt a baby from ethiopia. you can read more about them here.

here’s the fun and fabulous part- you can help them and win AMAZING (many hand made) items in their giveaway fundraiser. for every $5 you donate (super easily through paypal) you get one entry towards one of the many different giveaways on their website (check out the goods! and there’s so much more on the way in the weeks to come!). all you have to do is donate, then comment under the giveaway you like with your name and some way to contact you, and you’re in the runnings!

james 1:27 says “religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”

there are some people who don’t understand adoption (which puzzles me- what could be more sacrificial and Christ-like than bringing a child into your home? but some people are just ehh), and i said to leigh– ‘what better way to care for orphans than to bring them into your home and raise them as your own?’ i know that God is pleased when people open their homes to care for others and just love them. and that’s real.

so their story stirs my heart, and if you are looking for an opportunity to help or support a worthy cause, check out their giveaway and start donating! just don’t add entries to any of the things i want, okay? ;)
