We have a winner!!!!!!

Bradley Arnold -congratulations!

Thank you everyone. This was an amazing giveaway and we raised ready for this....$720 in two weeks just for people that wanted to participate in the giveaway! The bracelet was donated to us so every $1 counted towards bringing Talia home. We are so thankful to everyone that passed on our e-mails and web address as well as posting on facebook, not once, but twice, as well as, those that donated twice! You are all angels on earth. Moreover, thanks for having fun with the holiday cheer and all its twists and turns! It really showed us the power of prayer and "our village" working together towards the goal of saving an orphan's life.

We are beyond amazed at God's hand in all of this. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and stay tuned for our next fundraisers and posts about our tales of two!

God Bless you all and Happy New Year!

In addition to the excitement of the giveaway, this week, we received a new picture of our baby girl! She looks so good and is finally gaining weight. At 2 1/2 she is 22 lbs., which is much better then the 18 lbs. she was at for a year! I find the picture priceless and the best Christmas gift ever!

Look how big my smile is Mommy!


  1. I wanted to let you know a bit about the winner of your bracelet!!

    I happened upon your blog through Madison. When I saw the bracelet I was excited for two reasons.

    First, I thought it was a great idea for a fundraiser. Second, the word JOY engraved on the bracelet meant so much to me.

    Our journey to adoption was birthed our of JOY in so many ways. One of those ways was a little foster daughter who lived with us for 18 glorious months! We loved her deeply and now deeply grieve her. If it had not been for the gift of her in our lives we would have never added our 2 daughters to our family, and be in the process for a third. She awakened much JOY in our home and lives and birthed it into full measure through what she began. Her name was Ari JOY!

    Please know this bracelet holds so much meaning to me and I will wear it with great JOY in my heart!

    Thank you, and we pray success and blessing to you as you continue your journey to your beautiful baby girl!!!
