Our Giveaway Winners...

The kids and I had fun today drawing the winners of our fantastic giveaway! We raised almost 300 dollars through this giveaway and I feel so blessed to have that much more knocked out of our way toward this goal of bringing a child HOME. :) Thank you thank you thank you for your prayers, support, and generous giving. A large portion of that was through two large donations, which means those two individuals had quite a few entries and netted themselves a few items. :) So without further adieu... I give you... the winners...

(I did take a photo of each and every draw and the corresponding name, but when I began the post I didn't think fifteen pics of the kids with slips of paper would be very intriguing! lol!) They each had fun choosing and reading off each name...

Liam's were near impossible as he wouldn't keep his hands still! :)

The winners are...

1. Africa set - Megan T (quite fitting as she has a gorgeous little one from Africa!)

2. Vera Bradley coin purse - Mindy B

3. Vera Bradley set - Ashley B

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
