Just EIGHT More Days...

To order your Recycled Love shirt and help out our adoption fund!!!

This Valentine's Day, how about a unique gift for those loved ones in your life.
And instead of RED or PINK, let's GO GREEN!
Let's Recycle a little LOVE this year and spread it around!

The Andrews', who have themselves adopted but are not currently in process,
have come up with a wonderful new t-shirt idea for both kids and adults.
(Which is pretty hard in the adoption shirt world!) :)


Front of Shirts:

Back of shirts:
"Life's most urgent question is this:
What are you doing for others?"
~MLK


I LOVE these shirts!
I love the front design, but even more I think, I LOVE the quote on the back!

Here's what the Andrews' say about their shirts...
"for Valentine's Day, we are "Recycling Love" for adoptive families...
Forget red and pink hearts for Valentine's Day,
go GREEN and show your support for families adopting."

What a great way to give back, pay it forward,
and show those around you what someone can do for orphans.

Not only are they selling these shirts,
but they are offering profits of these shirts to families in the process of adopting themselves! $10 of EACH shirt sold will go directly to the adoption fund of the designated family.
And to help us in our process, just mark "Lisa" in the Pay*pal memo line of your purchase!

PLUS the family to raise the most from NOW until just after Valentine's Day,
February 18, will also be given an ADDITIONAL $500 toward their adoption!
I can't tell you how very much that would mean for us right now!
We have ONE MONTH!
Get the word out and help us raise this money!
And get a GREAT shirt in the process, what a win-win!

Remember to mark "Lisa" in the Pay*pal memo line!

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: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

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
