Say "Hello" to my sister-in-law, Jenny, her husband, Ryan, and their two kids, Ryker and Haylie. :) They are in the process of adopting these other two adorable kiddos, Hannah and Reese:
An exact date hasn't been set yet but they are hoping to bring them home sometime next month! Before that can happen though they still have to raise about $9,000 for the remaining expenses. So they have started a new fundraiser using puzzle pieces!
Check out the details below taken from their blog, Our Journey of Dreams:
How it works:
For $10, a person/family purchases 1 piece of the jigsaw puzzle pictured. We will write the name of the person/family on the back of the piece(s) purchased........like "big sister" is displaying above;) When all the pieces have been purchased we will put the puzzle together and display it in our home as a reminder of the support and love shown to us and our children during the adoption process.
I absolutely LOVE the idea of all of us putting this puzzle together as a family after Reese and Hannah come home. Just imagine them seeing ALL of those names of the people who wanted to help them come home! For two children who have never known the love of a family.......can you just imagine them realizing that 500 people cared enough about them to help???!!! I have a spot on my wall just waiting for this precious piece:)
You can purchase a puzzle piece(s) or donate to our adoption by:
1) Using the paypal "donate" link on the right side of our blog. Click and follow instructions
2) Sending your donation directly via paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org
3) Sending your cash or check donation via snail mail to Jenny or Ryan Roark: 11813 Hadley Rd, Sumner, IL 62466
Thank you all SO much for being a part of our journey to bring home Reese and Hannah!
