While browsing my blog list and all the giveaways everyone is offering, I stumbled across one that really stood out and pulled at my heartstrings and I feel very compelled to share with you all the story of the wonderful woman and family behind the Orphaned No More, 3,000 bracelets for Isabella campaign.
This wonderful family has already adopted 2 beautiful children, a boy from Russia and a girl from China...they long to adopt once more, another girl from China on the special needs list but like many adoptive parents, the monetary obstacles are more than they can take on alone, they need help raising the funds needed to bring their daughter home to them. Adoption can be such an expensive process and thus, the 3,000 bracelet campaign was started! Only 3,000 bracelets and this family will be as close as can be to bringing their new daughter out of an orphanage and into a happy and loving home!!!!
Please visit http://orphaned-no-more.blogspot.com/ and be sure to read the beautiful words written by this mother who is longing to bring her Isabella home http://jewels-of-my-heart.blogspot.com/2009/09/orphaned-no-more-for-isabella-3000.html Also please check out the contest being offered by The Path Before Me http://pathb4me.blogspot.com/2010/05/orphaned-no-more-3000-bracelets.html and enter to win your very own handmade cloth bracelet...but I sure hope you will consider making a purchase or two (or three, or four...) in support of this cause!
I think any parent who adopts a child is an angel sent from above to love and care for those that have no one to love and care for them on this earth, no mother or father, no brothers or sisters, only the hope that someone somewhere will love them and want them and make them a part of their family one day...I believe Isabella knows this in her little heart now and I hope she gets to come home to her family very soon!
