A Shout-out

If you've read my blog for a while (or if you are new around here...), you may know that I love supporting adopting families. Honestly, it's simply something that God placed in my heart and it has a special little nook in there :)

Usually, I've had a family of the month, but these last few months I haven't had a featured family. Between moving, traveling, and having the shop closed for a bit, I chose to wait until everything settles a bit before featuring another family. There will be a family soon--and I'm so excited about it :)

In the meantime, I continue to follow many adoption blogs and hear many stories. Some laced with joy, others with times of transition, and others with the frustrations that come with the process of adoption.

Many times, I read a person's blog and I feel like I know them. I read their heart, see their story, watch their children grow, etc...

That's the case with Lauren from Traded Dreams. Her and her husband recently adopted a son, Mareto, from Ethiopia. Goodness, he is SO cute :)

And they just announced that they accepted a referral for a little girl. 


If you know anything about adoption, it can be very expensive! To bring this baby home soon, they need quite a chunk of change in a short amount of time.

If you want to help, you should check out their big giveaway (especially if you love baby things!) and see how to tangibly help them. {ps. the giveaway ends on June 13th @ midnight}

You can also pray--because prayer really does work :)

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I recently started following your blog. Interestingly enough I am a parent of an adopted 41 year old son. Today I am playing with his 2 yr. old son, Evan. How God knows all, is so amazing. Our life would have been so different if Sean had not joined our home. He and his 4 children have embellished our lives to the fullest. Little did we know that a five day old baby would bring so much joy. Now we are anxiously awaiting a new baby in a month! God is good! May you have pease today.

  2. Yes, adoption is such a powerful blessing. I just recently gained an adopted sister through marriage, well not officially yet. She is my future hubbies sister who was adopted from Korea. She has an amazing story, and I can't wait to share it on my blog. I'm also a new follower!
