I'm a married mother of "3 1/2" ;) and the loves of my life are my faith and my family. I've grown in my faith over the last two years since my daughter's adoption, she is the reason why I started this blog in the first place, and I'm so looking forward to watching God move in my heart, and the hearts of others who follow along on our journey towards bringing home one of "the least of these". Special needs adoption is my mission field, whether I'm adopting a child myself, or helping other families get funded, or shouting for waiting children who need families to find them, and I hope you'll come along for the ride and watch what God can accomplish when we say yes to His command to care for the orphan, and go out into the world to be His hands and feet.

***GIFT BASKET GIVEAWAY***



I had to delete the original post for this giveaway because I couldn't change something in the blog post URL, but this is the exact same giveaway, nothing has changed about it, it will still end at the same time. Below is a picture of the screen print I took of the comments on the original post so everyone who was entered, is still entered, I know who you are! If you haven't commented yet and you donated (I know 3 of you haven't yet!) please comment on this post so I keep everyone in one place. Thanks and good luck!

It has been brought to my attention that a friend of mine is adopting a little girl from Russia!! We are so excited for the Morse family and to show our appreciation for all they're doing, we would like to help them fund their adoption journey. I h ave been making gift baskets for years, first, as a way to save money when Christmas shopping, or as a clever housewarming gift or hostess gift, and over time it turned into a little business of sorts!

This giveaway is going to feature TEN gift baskets, all of which will be given away to those who enter. In the below post you will see EXAMPLES of gift baskets, not the exact gift basket itself. This was a kind of spur of the moment idea so I didn't pre make any baskets, but I did troll the net for pictures, and got some fabulous new ideas!


Here are the 10 that are up for grabs:

1. Movie Night basket (2)
*** This basket will feature a family friendly movie, popcorn, candy, soda, popcorn bowl, throw blanket....everything you need for a great night in!

2. Family Game Night Basket
*** This basket will feature a game that can be played with the family, candy, popcorn, soda, etc

3. Dinner and a Movie Basket
*** This basket will feature everything you need for a warm meal, complete with recipe, and a romantic movie to watch together.

4. Cold Night, Good Book Basket
*** This basket will feature a good book (selected from a top seller list/popular book list) and everything you'll need to cuddle up and relax on a cold night!

5. College Days Basket
***This basket is perfect for your college kid, or teenager...or just someone who is a kid at heart! Features lots of yummy snacks and other fun time-passers

6. Baking Lover's Basket
***This basket features everything you need to make some delicious baked goods!

7. Welcome Home Basket
***This basket is perfect for a housewarming...a very practical gift containing common/popular kitchen/household items

8. Pamper Me Please Basket (2)
***Candles, Bubble Bath, and all the trimmings. The ultimate "me time" basket!

There are 2 baskets (#1 and #8) That are always a hit, so I'm offering up 2 of them, so that's a total of 10 baskets!

Here is how this is going to work:

Each entry is $5

you can get an entry for free just for reposting this on your: blog/facebook/twitter/emailing your momma...whatever! Let's get the word out!

Please comment on THIS POST so we know who entered, and how many times:

Example: "I donated $10 and reposted on facebook" (BOOM...3 entries! WOOT!)

If you don't let us know you entered, we can't add you to the drawing! This giveaway is going to run until Feb 15th so if you enter today for $5, but next week you find a $20 bill on the grocery store floor, you can come back and enter 4 more times!

On February 16th we will select the people who will receive prizes using a random online generator and post the results promptly.

Good luck!
