Books for a Cause

I am excited to host an Usborn Book fundraiser for a cause very near and dear to our hearts.... adoption!

The Erb family has stepped out in faith to bring  a sweet little one, Margarita, home.  They are working very hard to raise enough money to pay for her adoption, and we want to help them out.  Unfortunately international adoption is very expensive (we're talking about $35,000- $40,000 expensive!!) and it takes a village to make it happen! 

Here is a little bit of their story...

We adopted Aida in 2013... from Armenia. She is visually impaired. She was almost 8 when she came to the USA. With our other children, we felt like we had enough...but debated to return for Aida's best friend, who also has spina bifida... (our birth daughter has sb) but God did not choose to open those doors...
 
Last year, I felt God working on me and challenging me to be more open to other special needs..... the children that the world claims is hopeless. worthless. and has no value.... and he kept bringing Margarita to me.... a friend called from Ukraine and urged us to proceed and although we had zero funds from our last adoption and career change....we took a step of faith.... not knowing the impact that Margarita has has on so many.... and many people have contacted me asking me why Margarita, encouraging us and some, discouraging us...
 
When we started the process we did not Margarita had an older sister, names 'Niya', who is 16. And it is completely up to her whether or not she wants to come with us, but we are welcoming her.   Financially, we have started with nothing.... but God is supplying and we are trusting him completely.
 
 
And here's a little video on Margarita...
 
 
 
 
Please consider purchasing some wonderful books and helping to support this wonderful family on their very worthy journey!  The girls love their Sticker Dolly Dressing Ballerina books and the art book we got and Conner loves his activity book for boys , airplane book, and drawing book.  We have lots of other awesome Usborn books too.  Check them out!   Here's a link to the fundraiser...
 
 
 
 
 
Happy shopping!!
