Something Beautiful

As I have said many times,  I have been so blessed by the friends the Lord has crossed my path with  through blogland.  I've met some amazing, encouraging and inspiring women.  And this sweet lady I'm about to introduce you to is one of them.   
Meet Carina. She and her family have been called to the incredible journey of adoption.  As y'all know, adoption is expensive. So I've asked her to come share a little bit of her journey and how we can help be a part of this blessing. 

We may not ourselves be called to adopt a baby into our family but as Christians we are all called to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering (James 1:27)  and helping other families bring a baby home is one way we can do that. 

Please take a minute to see how you can help.
Besides the sheer blessing of it, Carina has figured out a way that you get to help AND get something pretty taboot!  You can't beat that with a stick!

Hello! I'm Carina and I blog over at a punk, a pumpkin and a peanut.
I am mama to three little rascals, lover of vintage and coffee and chocolate, among other things.


For the last year, my husband and I have been waiting to adopt our fourth baby.
We have two biological boys, and one adopted, and feel so excited to be adding to the sweet chaos that is our every day.

Two weeks ago we got the call that we'd been chosen to adopt a baby girl due this August. 
And we are over the moon.
We know that God is already writing our love story with this little peach
and His hand is so evident in the details.
You can read more about all of that here.
The reality of adoption is that it takes a serious chunk of change to make it happen.
Like $25,000 when all is said and done.
We've saved and saved and had a little pancake breakfast to get the ball rolling,
but we are still well away from that number.

We are not ones to ask for something without offering something in return,
mostly because it makes us feel weird.
I've been making jewelry for my little etsy shop for the last few months and
after a lot of thought, I decided to design a few adoption necklaces to help make up some of the difference.
I am dreaming big here: my goal is to sell 100. My dream is 200.
300 would knock our socks off and put a serious dent in that total.




 Would you consider helping us out?
Spread the word and buy a necklace (or two)...
you'll be helping us bring our baby home, supporting adoption
and you'll even get something pretty in return!
And please come follow along on this super exciting journey -
it's sure to be an adventure!

I can't wait to get my hands on this necklace!!
 I have the pleasure of already owning one of Carina's designs and I tell you her pieces are beautiful!  They are so dainty and pretty.  See for yourself.

Thanks Carina for sharing your journey with us.
I can't wait to meet your little "peach" !

And thank y'all for reading Carina's story.
I do hope you will join me in having a small part in something beautiful.
