Wild idea!

Hey all of you out there in adoption land!!!!!!! I am loving finding new ways to help with adoptions. I have looked around the internet and cannot find a current place that lists adoption fundraisers. I would love to start making a spot that lists the blogs of people who are making things to help with their adoptions. I know that so many of us are in a spot where we are just home with our newest kiddos, waitng to go get kiddos or just so excited about being part of God's hand in bringing kids home!
   So...here's my idea...if you are fundraising for your adoption or know of someone who is email me at shannon_miller72@yahoo.com. I will try to keep a current list on my sidebar and then those of us who want to can get the word out to friends & family about these ways to fund adoptions!!!!
    I'm so excited to see how the Lord could use this! So much of my heart is in wanting to continue to do as much as possible for both orphans and widows. I know that alone I am only one person but together we could do big things!!!!!!
    Let me know if you have any other ideas too!

What a super idea! The blessings that flow from having the opportunity to share in the blessings of adoption are incredible--to make it easier to find ways to help families is so SO keenly organized ... can you come over and help me organize my house 'cuz I think you have a knack for streamlining and getting to the heart of the matter!
Look forward to seeing that!
Blessings,
Valerie

Great idea Shannon! I have some friends who are adopting and I'll have to ask about how they are raising funds. I know they've had a couple of events.

I have a few ideas. Ok, this is kind of a big one, but why not start a support organization? Then you could have a paypal account attached to your blog and receive donations and then distribute them? Also, maybe shart a blog devoted to this, in addition to having it on your blog. You could have connecting to people doing fundraisers but also blog about events taking place and prayer requests, answers and stories of children being found. You could then have some other contributers so you're not having to do all the work...

I think you should run with this! Definitely a God idea:) Love ya!

Hi Shannon! What a great idea! I randomly ran across this site the other day and it would be perfect! The couple is creating (and selling) blog templates to raise money for their adoption: http://www.premades4purpose.com/about.html . Check it out!

Hey Shannon,
If you decide to devote a whole separate blog to this, I would be happy to design it for you. I do my own blog designs, you can check mine out :) Let me know! We could make it a 3 column design to put all the links on both sides and still leave space for blogging in the middle.
