Tuesday, August 7

let's do this.

today i have something special to share with you. my sweet friend, carina, is going to be bringing her fourth child, a baby girl, home through adoption in these next few weeks. she is waiting to get the call that her daughter is on her way and then she will go get her (!!!). my heart is so full for carina and her family. as we wait to be placed with a baby through our adoption agency, it is so important for me to support others who are walking through this adoption journey as well. i need to do this because Christ commands it of me. i have seen it before and i know i will see it again, where the body of Christ comes together to help each other. there aren't many things more beautiful than that. and there aren't many things more worthy of our money than helping a family bring their baby home through adoption. carina has designed these lovely necklaces to help raise money for their adoption costs. can you help? can you buy one for yourself and one for your friend? heck, can you buy twenty and give them out as christmas presents? let's do this.

Hello! I'm Carina and I blog over at a punk, a pumpkin and a peanut.
I am mama to three little rascals, lover of vintage and coffee and chocolate, among other things.

For the last year, my husband and I have been waiting to adopt our fourth baby.
We have two biological boys, and one adopted, and feel so excited to be adding to the sweet chaos that is our every day.

Two weeks ago we got the call that we'd been chosen to adopt a baby girl due this August. 

And we are over the moon.

We know that God is already writing our love story with this little peach

and His hand is so evident in the details.

You can read more about all of that here.

The reality of adoption is that it takes a serious chunk of change to make it happen.

Like $25,000 when all is said and done.

We've saved and saved and had a little pancake breakfast to get the ball rolling,

but we are still well away from that number.

We are not ones to ask for something without offering something in return,

mostly because it makes us feel weird.

I've been making jewelry for my little etsy shop for the last few months and

after a lot of thought, I decided to design a few adoption necklaces to help make up some of the difference.

I am dreaming big here: my goal is to sell 100. My dream is 200.

300 would knock our socks off and put a serious dent in that total.

 Would you consider helping us out?

Spread the word and buy a necklace (or two)...

you'll be helping us bring our baby home, supporting adoption

and you'll even get something pretty in return!

And please come follow along on this super exciting journey -

it's sure to be an adventure!
