"By adopting a child and helping them reach their potential, they help us reach ours. An adopted child is not an unwanted child; to the contrary. They are a child who was searched for, prayed for, cried for, begged for; received by arms that ached, making empty hearts full. Love is meant to be shared." Author unknown

The puzzle is nearly complete - will you accept the CHALLENGE?

Tears flowed today, a family contacted us to utilize our gift wrapping adoption fundraiser services and blessed us with a nice donation - we are so very blessed to have such wonderful new and long time friends, and some we don't even know, partnering with us in this journey! - every amount, small and big, as well as, time spent helping us fund raise- it's all given from the heart and adds up to us bringing these precious children home!!!  For that we are thankful!

Soon, our adorable boy's picture will be revealed - over $4000 has been raised (have you seen the goal thermometer?)- only 51 pieces left to complete the puzzle and this puzzle fundraiser's goal!!!!

CHALLENGE - We really want to share this adorable blessing with all of you, by Christmas eve!  To do that we need 51 people to make a $20 donation or more (or 20 people to make a $50 or 10 people to make a $100), to our AdoptTogether.org/Downey tax deductible fundraising site to reach the puzzle completion goal.  Who's ready to see this child who has waited so long for a family to call his own?  I know I can't wait to share him!

Donations can be made online through AdoptTogether, or checks can be sent as well, if you have questions on either of these, please ask!

BONUS: If local, gift wrapping is another option, get gifts wrapped with your donation!!!!

Who's ready to partner with us for the challenge?

Deuteronomy 26:12-13"When you have finished paying all the tithe of your increase in the third year, the year of tithing, then you shall give it to the Levite, to the stranger, to the orphan and to the widow, that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.
