(Sidenote: since they are biological brothers, we only have to pay the fees for 1 adoption rather than 3--a true paperwork miracle! haha! The only additional costs are the plane tickets home!)
We saw God move in BIG ways when we were in the process of adopting Eden--and in the area of finances, we saw Him move in the biggest ways. So many people (many of you) came alongside us and helped get her HOME!
We truly believe that adoption is a team effort, so...we are asking you to help us—to be a part of this adoption journey.
Here are the ways you can help us out financially:
1) Make a straight-up contribution...with a chance to win an iPad mini!!
We have an account on AdoptTogether (click here or on the logo to the right of our blog page) where you can make a tax-deductible contribution to our adoption fund.
From now through June 8th, we have an incentive--every $20 contribution will give you a chance to win an iPad mini (16 GB)! We'll do the drawing on June 9th and announce the winner right here on our blog!
2) Buy some stuff for yourself or for others where a portion of the proceeds go to our adoption fund. Hey, if you need to buy gifts, why not shop for a cause?!
For these 2 fundraisers, you can shop online now through June 8th or in person on June 1st from 10am-2pm at our home (see flyer below) if you're local:
- Noonday Collection - click here to shop for jewelry, accessories, and home and gift items; in order to ensure your purchase goes toward our adoption fund, please follow these instructions: on the check out page there will be a yellow bar--select DEBRA RICE, then enter your info, scroll all the way to the bottom in the blank just below where it says AMBASSADORS ONLY type LAUREN HUSS ADOPTION in the blank for trunk show
- Thirty-One Gifts - click here to shop for everything you need to organize your home or carry your things in style; make sure you are shopping from my "party" to ensure your purchase goes toward our adoption fund
For these 2 fundraisers, you can shop online for the duration of our adoption journey or in person on June 1st from 10am-2pm at our home (see flyer below) if you're local:
- JustLove Coffee - click here to purchase amazing organic coffee from a fair trade certified company; you should see "Thank you for supporting Team Huss with your purchases" at the top of your screen when you are shopping.
- Wild Olive Tees - click here to purchase cool t-shirts that will help you "get your verse on," then enter HUSS524 as your "coupon code" when you check out to ensure the purchase is applied to our adoption
This journey is about so much more than our desires to have children. We are excited to see how God will continue to work in us as we grow our family. We know that God will equip us for every step of this journey and we are so thankful for the friends and family who are walking with us!
Thanks for joining us to bring our boys HOME!
-Ben, Lauren, Eden, and Callie
