IMG_3025We have a new way for people to help with our adoption journey and to help others out at the same time.

these beautiful hand-made bracelets are crafted by men, women and children living in impoverished areas in the Philippines. Their circumstances appeared to offer little hope for a brighter future. But making these bracelets has provided a life-sustaining income for many families and has fostered a new sense of hope within their communities. Each piece you purchase helps communicate that hope and brings dignity to these families who are anxious to work so they can provide for and protect their children.

Threads of hope is the name of this ministry that aims to achieve:

1. To share the love of God with the hungry, poor and abused, by first demonstrating God’s love in practical and meaningful ways.     

2. To protect the innocence of children by providing a life-sustaining and ongoing income for families.

3. To help more families at risk by providing nutrition, medical care, education and community development with profits generated from their own labors.

4. To produce a quality product that will raise the awereness of the oppressed while connecting people from radically different economic backgrounds and cultures.

5. To provide opportunities for people moved with compassion with a fun and fulfilling outreach that will impact lives in a tangible way.

Our family is in partnership with this ministry and hope that you would also like to become a part of this too. I am honored to be able to sell their wares to help families that I will never even meet. To help children stay out of the sex slave trades, for families to have hope. By buying one bracelet not only do you support nameless faces across the world but you will be a part of helping us in our endeavor and adventure.

 

He who is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward him for what he has done.   Proverbs 19:17

baby feet 12

I had a talk with my sister about some of the frustrations that I am encountering. With the wait and needing to come up with so much money for the cost and fees of adoption. I am also having a hard time with seeing those around me that are in the process of adoption, getting their children or almost. Even though some of them have waited years and years, and may have no other children. I can see how those women who are going through infertility, see babies everywhere. How so many every day things are directed towards children and family. Commercials, movies, shows, babies everywhere at stores and walking down the street. There is no where to hide from these feelings.

In this discussion and thinking how I feel about things, she talked about a monopoly game. Sitting in jail watching others keep on playing and you are just stuck. I thought of uno and getting the skipped and reversed card. You are ready but you have no control, you keep watching and waiting for your turn. Debbie mentioned it’s sorta like one step forward, two steps back. This happens in so much of life but I think it is a accurate explanation of how I feel.

I have been looking into selling things on our blog to help support us. I was so excited earlier this week, that I was approved to sell handmade bracelets that were made from the people in Philippines. I also put a donate button on this blog to allow people to help us, to partner with this journey. But then it can look so insurmountable and too hard to achieve.

I will continue to try and have faith. That God put this desire in our hearts and soul. I might not know or see how this is all going to work out, but it sure will be amazing.

Thanks for everyones support and prayers. I will put the bracelets on soon, so everyone can see them.
