Chosen Family of The Month: The Vargas Family

Hello lovely people!  It's been so long since we've written a post, or updated the blog, and we're sorry for that! Life has been hectic (Like every other time we've stopped writing!), but we're trying to navigate, and rearrange our *new* adult lives so that we still have time for blogging. :)

As you know we like to fund-raise for families every month, though we took the last two months off, we are right back at it again, and this time our Chosen Family is the Vargas family!  This sweet family is adopting three lovely babes, Alonzo, Mary Ellen, and Sophia, from Easter Europe.  They have already traveled to meet their blessings and are now waiting for another set of travel dates.  We want to help ease the financial burden that comes with international adoption by holding a fundraiser that will benefit them.  So, to kick off the fundraising this month I have a handmade (by me!) 8in X 10in  canvas that quotes "the answer is still and again love."

(Click on the photo to enlarge.) 

I felt this quote was fitting, adoption is centered around love, whether it be the love these children have lived without, or the love that the Vargas family will be bringing to them, or the fact that now that these babes have a family they will never be without love again.  Love is always the answer.

We will be holding a giveaway that will run for 5 days (starting today 08/4/2014) and ending this Saturday (08/9/2014).  You can enter this giveaway 2 ways, and earn up to 2 entries.  One way to earn an entry is by donating $5 (or more, whatever you feel like giving!) to the donation button on the right hand side of the blog named "Vargas Blessings".  You can also earn 1 free entry by sharing this fundraiser on your Facebook!  If you have chosen to grab that free entry by sharing on your Facebook, please be sure to comment below and let us know so we can count your free entry at the end of this giveaway! :)

I know this canvas isn't much, but when you consider giving please think of Alonzo, Mary Ellen, and Sophia.  The Vargas family has so courageously stepped out in faith the pay the ransom for these lives that have been deemed worthless.  When you give that $5 it may not seem like much, but I can guarantee you that it means the world to this family.  Let's help them bring their babies home.




With love,
Alyssa
