"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Its a love story!

So as many of you know, last year all the awesome 'babyhouse 19' mama's banded together and send Christmas back to those left behind. One of us had the idea and all our craziness worked in our favor to get it all together in a month.

Well, now we are banding together again. My amazing friend MICHELLE has three sweet ones from Alina's old baby house (that we refer to as '19'), and while there met two little boys, who at the time had a family coming for them. Michelle and her husband witnessed these two boys on transfer day. The day they were pulled from their lives at the baby house and driven to an older child orphanage. It was heart wrenching, but they were able to rest a little easier knowing the boys had a family coming.

Then, the family backed out for unknown reasons. The boys were transferred to another facility that isn't so great, and last month another mom was there and witnessed their lives. She just happens to be another 19 mom, and with that, Michelle and her husband have stepped out in faith to bring these two sweet ones home.

Its truly a love story, and they are working fast to make it a happy ending. And here is where you come in! My friend JENNIFER cooked up quite the giveaway! Michelle and her husband are working double, triple time to get their paperwork done before the country closes its doors to new dossier's for the Winter. That means they need to get everything done, start to finish in two months. It CAN be done, it WILL be done, but you all know what really stands in the way......

So GO! Donate! Win some cool prizes and watch the love story unfold into a happy ending!

My family just donated a small amount to your account. I enjoy your blog (which I just found) and your gorgeous items on Etsy. I grew up in WI but my husband and I were married in Winona, MN and lived there several years. My sister still lives in southern MN in a small town. What part of the state do you live in?

Good luck to you!
