Thankful Thursday

I have so many things to be thankful for, but right now I am so thankful for the generosity that so many of you have shared with Matt and us as we journey back to China to bring our son home. The gifts, donations, words of encouragement, etc have meant more to us than you can imagine. I know many of you who have donated are struggling financially as well or also in the middle of financing an adoption. This is what it is all about...The adoption community pulling together to bring these children home.

I know I have posted before about Tracy at Junk Posse and the huge heart she has for orphans and getting them home. Tracy e-mailed me the other day to let me know she has just come out with a totally new design and just in time for the holidays. She has created a beautiful ladybug necklace to help support Chinese adoptions. Many of you know that ladybugs are known as a symbol of Good Luck in the Chinese community. It is said that a ladybug siting is sure to bring good luck.

Tracy has also graciously offered to donate 30% of her China proceeds to our family to help us bring our son home. And, if you mention my name when checking out you will get a pair of FREE earrings. Not only will you be getting beautiful jewelry made right here in the good ol' USA, but your purchase will also help us bring our son home. So, please hop over to Tracy's Etsy shop and look around and feel free to spread the word.

Oh, I am SO NOT a jewelry person...but I WANT that lady bug! To me it would be a reminder of all the children that are still waiting in China for their family. Perhaps a daughter for us after we bring Evan home.

Oh, Mandi, if only I could swing the cost, I'd do it before my sense caught up with my heart. Somebody will though...It's beautiful.

Oh how I wish I could afford one of these. I love the ladybug necklace and also the personalized one. It says 'to russia with love' and then the child's name...but if it said 'to china with love' and Khloe...oh how cute would that be! She does great work! So thoughtful of her to donate partial procedes to your journey! How sweet!! :)

Blessings and Hugs,
