From HIV to Home: Make Hope

The amazing Lisa Leonard has designed this stunning limited-edition necklace for From HIV to Home! This beautiful sterling pendant (about 3/4″) is hand-stamped with “make hope” and adorned with a sweet little heart. Strung on 18″ ball chain (please allow up to 3 weeks for delivery). Perfect for yourself, for Mother’s Day, for a birthday, or just because!

This necklace is being offered as a gift with your donation of $50 or more during the months of April and May. Donations must be made HERE to qualify for the gift.

I love working for From HIV to Home. I am hearing from many families who are exploring adopting an HIV+ child, as well as many families who are in process. We have great resources available, including State Fact Sheets for most states, a great information sheet on HIV, fundraising opportunities, waiting children listings, and best of all, we pray for our families. What a privilege it is to serve in this way!

Let me introduce myself. Russ and I are the parents of twelve children by birth and adoption, and sometimes more through foster care. I'm the creator of One Thankful Mom which has been as much of a gift to me as to my readers. In 2011 I became a TBRI® Pracitioner* and have lived and breathed connected parenting ever since. I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    I was reading down through your posts and was so blessed by the one you wrote about your daughter being in love…with her mommy. What a beautiful work the Lord is able to do–as we are willing to be empty vessels fit for the Master’s use.

    oh how generous of Lisa Leonard! I’ve always wanted one of her pieces but never felt I could “justify” the cost…but now…:)

    Dear Lisa!
    I donated but since I live in Germany I thought maybe either one of your children might like to have the necklace.
