Show and Tell

Show--see the new header and the "Grab Our Button" on the right side?  The amazing people at Reece's Rainbow made those for me.  In their spare time.  Lu is a mother and volunteer that does this to help families as they travel down the adoption road.

Tell--Now you can donate directly to our family page at Reece's Rainbow by clicking on the button on the side.  It is tax deductible by going through Reece's Rainbow.  So, if you'd like to help us out financally you can.  Also, pass this on so if you know someone who recently told you, "I have a ton of cash and I've been waiting to help out a family trying to adopt a special needs little girl..."  You have somewhere you can send them.  We're always looking for ways to help people out like that.

Also, you can take the code beneath the button and put it on your own blog, if you are one of "us" and have a blog, so that others can see it.  Who knows what God will do?  Maybe someone who had never thought of adopting a special needs child or one from a foreign country (like yours truly).  Maybe that someone will see the button, go to the website and see their future blessing (like yours truly, again.)  How cool would that be?  We could start a revolution of babies being saved from orphanages!  We could be a part of whole new set of little arrows for the kingdom! 

Ok, maybe I'm getting a little carried away.  I'm just excited about my button.

  1. First of all, Mrs. Frye, our family has had a wonderful time "peeking into" the journey of Alice Faith. When you get the chance to look back, this blog will be such a sweet reminder of God and His faithfulness. (Especially the timeline!)

    Second, I noticed the little blue image at the top of the blog. You may not want to, but I found a tutorial to fix that here:

    You're at step #5. =)

  2. Ashlee,
    Thank you so much! I didn't know it didn't look right. I really don't know anything about blogging, I just thought it would be an easier way of keeping everyone updated.

    How does it look now?

  3. It looks nice! Beautiful inside (and out)!

    Blogger just implemented the new "Template Designer" so free backgrounds don't work as easily as they used, too. =) It was fine before, but I thought I'd let you know just in case you were trying to fix it.

    Just to make sure, is it okay to post a link to this blog on FB for all to see and potentially give to? Are you okay with your blog going to over 400 people you don't know... or do you just want us to post directly to Reece's Rainbow? I was just thinking that it might be nice for people to read your story so they can consider giving. Let me know!

  7. Christina,
    It's fine to post to your fb. I would love to have more people know of the children in Eastern Europe that need families. I will be careful to not post anything that can't be read by all.

    Thanks for asking.
    Emily

  8. Found you through Jasmine - Joyfully at Home. I am so blessed to see more and more families adopting children from Easter Europe.

    I have a little girl with Down syndrome so this is dear to my heart. May the Lord bless you and keep you during this time.

    My good friend is in Eastern Europe right now getting her two little girls who happen to have Down syndrome. She will now have three little girls at home with Ds. I can't wait until she gets back. She's been journaling her experience at Mallory and Peace blogspot.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me throughout your process.
