Our New Fundraiser

Dear Friends and Family,

We are excited to announce the growth of our family, with our new daughter. Her internet name is Kameron and she is simply beautiful. She was born in 2004 in Eastern Europe and has been living in an orphanage for most of her life, if not all of it. A couple of different friends were able to see her a few times over the last year; they report she has had some kind of surgery on her hip and/or leg, and she is doing better physically. One of these friends also reports her personality, although still very sweet, is changing. Her spirit is waning.

We come to you now and ask for your support. We are in need of two things, the first being love. Please surround us with your love and support. Please surround our little girl that she will be kept safe and that we can speed through this process and bring her home quickly and safely. It is true; our daughter is one of the luckier ones. Where she lives right now is one of the better orphanages. She has a director and care givers who care about her, and take care of her the best they are able. She is obviously getting at least some of the care that she needs, as she received her surgery, and is making noticeable progress physically. The real sad part is her future, and it is VERY near for her. Between the ages of 4 and 6 children are moved out of the baby houses, where Kameron currently is living. She will be transferred to an older child's home or to an institution. We are not sure where she will go, but any transfer will have astronomical consequences for her. Even more so if she is sent to an institution. We must bring her home ASAP! Please repost this to your facebook pages, on your blog, on any online forum that you think would be appropriate. Also feel free to make copies of this to pass around as a letter to your churches, your family, your friends, your Bible studies, acquaintances at work etc. Ask them to surround us in love, in light and to pray for this process to be expedited and for the safety and security of our little girl.

The second is monetary. As you can expect, international adoption is very expensive. To bring Kameron home will cost almost $40,000 total. I have been counting this $20 at a time, just 2000 $20 bills. This money could be tax deductible if you are a US citizen and give through Reece’s Rainbow! Some friends and family have blessed us already in this way, and are greatly appreciative of all of your gifts, support, good thoughts, prayers and monetary donations.

We have planned a fundraiser called The Miracle of 2. We are asking if you would consider donating $2 towards creating a miracle in Kameron's life, and if you could then share our story and fundraiser with 2 other people who may be interested in being a part of her miracle. It may not seem like a very big amount, but every penny helps. We believe that it is true, that generosity grows generosity. That each penny that goes into our adoption fund will multiple and grow thanks to everyone's good thoughts and prayer. This also may not seem like a miracle to you, but to this one little girl, who has been watching her friends meet with their families daily for weeks at a time, and then go home with them, leaving her behind.... You bet this is her miracle, and her dreams come true. It is ours too! If you are willing to share our story, and help it to spread, we will all get a chance to see how generosity and love can grow. And with your continued support of love and prayer, we will be able to bring our little girl home as quickly as the paperwork process allows. She will not have to suffer through a transfer; she will not have to know life from the inside of an Eastern European institution. With your love and generosity of spirit she will know, and very soon, the love of a family, the security of her own home, and she will learn that she is beautiful and perfect just as she is. The fundraiser will run from Friday, October 14, 2010 until Kameron's 6th birthday on Sunday, November 21, 2010. Our goal is to raise $30 000. On Monday, November 22, we will announce on our blog the total raised. Each donation of $2 or more will get one entry into our giveaway, to be held at the end of the fundraiser. Please be sure to email me or leave a comment so I can keep track of your donations. We are also looking forward to seeing how far our efforts will travel. In preparation for the holiday season the giveaway will be $200.00 Best Buy Gift Card. Now for the fine print, if we have money left over after our adoption is complete, it will go back to Reece's Rainbow to help another child to go home to their forever family. Those who have already donated cash to our FSP fund or directly to us already will receive a chance to win the giveaway. If we reach our goal there will be a second drawing for a surprise giveaway !

If you are unable to help financially, please still consider helping us by surrounding all of us in your love and prayer, and sharing our story with everyone you know. You can help bring this little girl home; you can be a part of her miracle.
