The creator of this necklace donates 100% of the proceeds to the adoption of her soon-to-be grandchild from Ethiopia. You can read about the adoption on her website, Junkposse
She also has jewelry for those adopting from China and Guatemala as well as more Africa related pieces. I hope you will take a minute to go to her website.
In other family news, the snow is still here and it seems that it will never go away. Yesterday I walked out the garage door, lost my footing, and fell hard. Driving around town is an adventure with piles of snow so high that it isn’t possible to change lanes. Large sections of the grocery store parking lot are taken up with mountains of snow. As I write, it is coming down once again.
Russ was out of town last night which
meant that there was room in my bed for Ladybug. At 2:00 Boo climbed in and joined us. At 3:30 Eby began to cry, so I got up to cover him. At 4:00 Dimples climbed in, wrapped her arms firmly around my neck, put her head on my chest, whispered, “I love you Mommy” and went back to sleep. At 5:00 I was still wide awake wedged between two girls.
So I did what I find is most productive in the wee hours of the morning, I prayed. I prayed for my husband and my children, for traveling mercies, for deep and abiding faith in all of us, for health, joy, wisdom, and my children’s future spouses. I prayed for the children in Ethiopia who still do not have families, who have no mother to wrap their arms
around in the night. Finally I fell asleep for what felt like a short time. Moments later I heard a sweet little voice down the hall call out, “Mamma”.
Then the day began with a vengeance and was intense right up until nap time. Some days it is a wild ride around here.
If you haven’t already seen it, please take a minute to look at my previous post about an opportunity to help the children of AHOPE.
