Exciting News!!

For all my local family and friends:
We have a new amazing fundraiser going on!
My sweet friend Lacie from Lacie Lauree Photography has shared this on her blog......

“Adoption is rewarding. But the process, as we have already detailed in some particulars, can be expensive, exhausting, and hard to sustain on a dream, much less a whim.”
― Scott SimonBaby, We Were Meant for Each Other: In Praise of Adoption
Do you want to do something beautiful for God? There is a person who needs you. This is your chance.
Mother Teresa
I have always felt that God has given me this love and this gift of photography. What I also love is to be able to use this gift to give back, to help others.
This is the Bowen family.
I keep writing words and then deleting them because nothing seems to say exactly what I feel or am thinking. So here it is in a nutshell version.
Krystle and I went to high school together. Friends in high school, lost touch, Facebook brought us back together when we were both pregnant with our sons. Ever since then it’s been a beautiful, blessed, and solid friendship. I admire her for every ounce that she is. Her husband is pretty rad too! And her kiddos…… complete blessings.
This family has a heart of gold. But not only that, they have a heart full of the love of Jesus. So full in fact that they want to pour that love out on another kiddo. Krystle, Trever, Jack, Christian and Camden would love to add another child into their home. This has been something that the Lord has really been speaking to them. Krystle is a CE for Trades of Hope and had the opportunity to travel to Haiti to see the products made by the people there. While there she visited an orphanage. Once home the decision was made… LET’S DO THIS.
From their site: We are beyond excited to start the process of adoption. We are stepping into this with great anticipcation and prayer.  We know the road ahead of us with have many ups and downs, surprises and dissapoinment. We also know that we are not walking through this alone!The Lord has clearly laid this on our hearts and we are confident in his provision for us both emotionally and financially. Adoption is expensive. The cost ranges from $18,000-$30,000 and we can’t afford it without help. We are committed to doing our part and are also reaching out and asking you to help us bring home Bowen Baby #4!
My heart would be so full if you would help me gift to this family and help in their fund for adoption.
