$100 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway !!!!

We have a winner !!

Thank you for your patience !!  This Giveaway is now ended - thank you so much for donating and/or sharing !!!   I have did the draw the old fashioned way - each person's name was written on a piece of paper for each entry, the names all went in a pot, I closed my eyes, and drew out the winner.

And the winner is....

Elaina Lawrence !!!

Congratulations !!!!!

Please e-mail me at, and I will get your $100 Amazon gift card e-mailed to you by the end of the day !!  If you prefer to get an actual gift card, rather than the e-mail version, I'll need your full name and mailing address.


I am veering off the usual road here, and reaching out for help for a family I know of through the Reece's Rainbow Facebook Page. 

This family are in the process of adopting two beautiful children from Eastern Europe.


They were offered a "matching grant".  This is where someone offers, for example, to donate $2500 to an adoption grant, if the family can themselves raise that amount by a certain date.  This family were working hard to raise their share, and had many people helping, when they were slapped in the face.

It turned out that the matching grant was a hoax. 

I just can't imagine the kind of person who would do this, but apparently this particular person makes a habit of sabotaging adoptions.  If you know me at all, you know what I would like to do to this fraud. If you don't know me - use your imagination.

Denise, the adoptive momma, has been a blessing to many many other families who have adopted or who are in the process.  The only thing stopping her from flyng over to grab her children is money.  All she needs is the funds to cover the agency fees, everything else is covered.  There are many many people wanting to help this family get their children home, and although I don't know them personally, I feel like I just have to do something.

So - I am having a quick and easy giveaway.

Up for grabs is a $100 Amazon Gift Card.
