Announcing: Bring Home Grace Walk-a-Thon

Did I ever mention what GOOD FRIENDS we have?! :)  The Peersons are helping us put together an amazing walk-a-thon to help "Bring Home Grace!"  Homeschooling families are being invited to join us on April 30th for a walk-a-thon in a beautiful local park with a walking trail.  We have an INCREDIBLE grand prize gift bag worth about $150 (in gift cards and other prizes).  The grand prize will be awarded to the participating walk-a-thon family who raises the most money for our adoption fund (asking friends and family to sponsor them in the walk-a-thon).  (Must be present to win)  We've worked to make the process of getting sponsors very simple (we've created neat flyers and a simple sponsorship form). 

For those home schooling families who are reading our blog for the first time, WELCOME!  :)  We LOVE home schoolers around here!  :)  Please feel free to read our past posts to "catch up on our journey," not to mention looking at all our cute pictures of Grace.  :)  If you want to read a bit more about our story, you can click on Grace's picture in the upper LEFT corner of our blog; that will take you to our adoption fund page and our brief story.

If your family will NOT be able to join us for the walk-a-thon, I'm sure there will be other home schooling families who would love to have you as one of their sponsors to help them earn that Grand Prize!  :)  Or you can help us by donating directly into our tax-deductible adoption fund (click on Grace's photo in the upper LEFT corner of this blog).  EVERY donation, no matter how big or small, is truly a BLESSING to us and will impact Grace's life forever.  A little here and a little there really DOES add up!  In fact, if every person who hears about our adoption were to give just $10, we'd have all our adoption funds!  Amazing, isn't it?!  :)  

Thank you to the Peersons for all your hard work and sweet servant's hearts.  Thank you to all the home schooling families who will participate in our walk-a-thon (it should be a really wonderful event!).  Thank you to everyone who donates.  And thank you to everyone who is covering our adoption in daily prayer.  We've been encouraged by all the sweet support!  :)
