For Love...Will you help?

Hello my dear blog readers! I have something that I would like to finally share with you all that is very personal. Above are my two little miracles, I know you've seen pics of them before in LO's and such:) Well, I have some wonderful news to share with you all...we are in the middle of a second Ethiopian adoption!! We have been in the process for almost a year now and the next big step we are waiting for is to be matched to our little baby boy. We don't know when that will happen, it could be any day for the phone to ring saying they have found our lil' bean.

In the midst of this waiting and anticipation for our new baby, we have just recently been dealing with having to find a new home. The house we have been in for the past 2 1/2 years we were hoping to buy, but when the appraised value came back much lower than what the owner wanted, they backed out of our deal...so we are house hunting. It's all been pretty stressful to be honest!

For any of you at all familar with adoption it is a very costly endevour, and our costs are going to be even more magnifed now that we will be moving in the near future as well. So, I wanted to not only share some of our story, but ask for your help if you so feel led. We have opened up an online coffee shop that sells fair trade Ethiopian coffee and some other fun products that will help us fundraise some extra money to get our little boy home. For every bag of coffee that is purchased, we will get $5. If you would like to help us we'd be so very grateful, and please feel free to pass our site on to all your friends and family too! Thank you so much for your support:) Click HERE to go to our coffee shop.

Leah your children are so beautiful. I, too, hope and pray for the best and that your new addition will be arriving soon. What a lovely way to open your heart.

I've never had Ethopian coffee before, but perhaps I'll give it a try. Not real soon, I am still getting back on my feet. But my heart and prayers go out to you that you find a house soon and that your baby boy will comes home soon, too.

Leah, I'm so glad that I read your story! My dd and her husband have recently adopted 2 older boys from Ethiopia .. one is 4, the other 9. So, I already have some of the E coffee here at my house. But am wondering if you have any flowers made for your Etsy! You know I love those!

Hi Leah, just popped by your blog and read about your adoption story. My hubby and I are just starting the adoption process...we are pretty unsure about the whole thing. It is nice to hear about someone else who is doing it too.

Fun to read that you adopt internationally! Our middle daughter has two children from Ukraine and will be going to Bulgaria to pick up two they just adopted in another week!!! We're so excited! What a blessing! Do you really get a baby or are they toddlers?
