A Giveaway!

As I'm sitting here at my computer, wearing my new favorite t-shirt, I just felt like doing a giveaway. I just love giveaways! And what better one than to give this awesome t-shirt to help raise money for Gwen to bring her babies home from Africa. I have followed Gwen's blog for quite some time now and she is such an inspiration. In addition to working on publishing a book of adoption stories (I submitted our story of Leila and Mia), she is selling t-shirts and tote bags to raise money so she can adopt two more children, Abigail and Joseph, from Africa. So.... if you want a chance to win this t-shirt (the winner can pick the size), just leave me a comment before midnight on Wednesday, 2/25.

Description: White, long-sleeved t-shirt with brown and yellow accent colors.

On another note, I know Gwen would appreciate your prayers for her daughter, Maggie, as she will undergo her first of several surgeries tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Michelle - Love your giveaway!! How fun - I have already ordered my tote bag. I think it will make a great teacher's bag - what do you think?!?

Although I have just recently started following their journey to Abigail and Joseph (through your blog) it definitely is inspiring! It is such a privilege to watch all your families grow!!
