Welcome to Touching Lives, One at a time

This blog is dedicated to giving you a place to shop that supports adoption and adoptive families. Everyone listed on this blog is trying to raise money either for their family to adopt or to help other families adopt. If you want to support adoption - this is the place to shop!!

Just a note - I realize that posts will drop off the bottom of the blog that are still relevant - SO - make sure and click on the sidebar on Labels - to see past posts that are still active - you don't want to miss anything!!!!

Jada Fund

I try not to post for myself very often, but since I have people asking, I thought I would let you know how you can give to help our family with this, our second, adoption. So I will post some different ways you can help give money toward our adoption. What always amazes me is that God takes care of everything! And Jada Makes 7 (Previously And Chloe Makes 6
1) You can give to the piggy bank in the sidebar And Jada Makes 7 - this goes through Paypal.
2) You can sign up for a blog makeover at Busy Mama Blog Design.
3) You can order from Amazon.com by clicking on ANY of our links at the bottom of our blog - you don't even have to order THAT item, but any order placed by clicking in through our blog - gives a small portion to our family account.
4) You can mail a check to our church and give through them - that would give you a tax deductible statement. If you choose this route here's the address:
New Hope Evangelical Free Church
Attn: Lisa Leusink
718 Florida Ave. SW
Orange City, IA 51041
IN THE MEMO LINE: put "Adoption for Bilby's" and it will 100% get to us and you will get a tax-deductible statement as well.
5) Any Creative Memories orders placed through my site also give a portion back to us - so that is good too!! (Traditional Scrapbooking or Digital Supplies - either counts!!)
6)Lastly, I am starting another blog - this one is called Chloe's Closet - I am selling all of Chloe's out-grown clothes that I was saving for Jada and now know won't fit her! I am also accepting DONATIONS of items to giveaway on this site as well - some designers have sent me brand new items to list on there - and that helps us too!

Cookbook Anyone??

I love it when yet another family has their heart turned toward adoption! The Ryder's are raising money to help bring home their son who is currently in Uganda. What a wonderful cause and their cookbook looks like it will be WONDERFUL!
