Adoption Awareness Linky Party!

November is Adoption Awareness Month! And since we have a big passion for adoption around here, I thought it would be a great opportunity to get the word out about our Chosen Child Adoption Ministry, as well as other fabulous adoption related causes around the web!

With the holidays approaching, you have a great opportunity to buy gifts that "give back" and help adopting families, who are desperately trying to raise the money they need to bring their child home!

For every Chosen Child Adoption Band {wristlet keychain} or half loop that you purchase here in our shop, we donate the entire proceeds to our adopting families! They make great Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers, particularly for moms, teachers and college students who always have their hands full and have to carry their keys with them!

And for every Chosen Necklace you purchase over at Cap Creations, she will donate $10 to our adopting families! What a beautiful gift this would make for anyone on your list!

We are also willing to sell any of our products to adopting families at half price. They can then turn around and resell them at whatever price point they choose, keeping the profit for their adoption!

Find out more about these opportunities here. And if you are an adopting family looking for ways to raise money, contact Julie at We support one family per month and have openings for December 2012 as well as 2013 months. We would love to help your family fundraise!

We recently had a family contact us about hosting a donation birthday party. Their adopted daughter was celebrating her 1st birthday and in lieu of gifts, they decided they would ask guests to bring a donation (if they felt led) to our Chosen Child Adoption Ministry!

I had nothing to do with it; she simply contacted me to let me know what she was doing. It was a total God thing and that one little party raised almost $900 for our ministry!

The party was coordinated by one of our sponsors, The Fine Line Market, and what is even more incredible is the fact that these 2 amazing ladies want to help me find other families to host donation birthday parties in our honor! So if you would like to join the new trend in birthday parties (maybe you have already brought your child home and want to help other adopting families) by giving back in lieu of gifts for a child who already has more than they need, contact me at and we will get your little one set up with a fabulous party for a fabulous cause!

Now it's your turn! Help us spread the word about adoption, a worthy cause and one of the ways God is taking care of the 147 million orphans in this world!

Please link up (or leave a comment with) any adoption related post. Make sure you link directly to your post and not to your general blog. Here are some ideas of topics you might want to link up to this party:

-the story of your adoption journey or your adoption fundraisers
-shops and products that "give back" to adoption
-adoption ministries and organizations that support adoption
-resources for adopting families and those considering adoption
-helpful tips and encouragement for adopting families

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. {John 14:18}
