Need to start on your Christmas shopping?

Have a birthday coming up for that someone that's always hard to buy for?

Blessed with a great teacher in your children's lives?

Today only, you can purchase an AMAZING necklace at Sarah's Treasure Box on etsy AND $5 of EVERY necklace purchased will go toward our adoption!!! The best part is, her necklaces only cost between $8 and $12 to start with!!! And $5 of that price goes back to us! They have lots of great glass pendants - some with decorator designs, some with witty sayings and slogans. My "I'm Paper Pregnant: Adoption in Progress" necklace came from Sarah and I LOVE it so much!!! There are also some great bottlecap necklaces that even young girls would love to receive! I know Olivia would love one!

Please just jump over and take a look! Can't hurt to look, right!? :)

Lisa said...

Gotcha! Yes we "met" through our blogs and also a yahoo group. :) I use a paypal link where people can donate and then have my "thermometer" on the side to show where we are in our donations. Under the thermometer is a link to the spot where I got that. does that help??? I think Lisa used chipin which is good too. It didn't let me add in donations that come from other sources so I opted not to use that one myself.

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
