We are in our final stages of fundraising as we have about a month left until I leave to pick up our precious Sophia.  We still need to raise $5000 to cover the rest of the fees to complete Sophia's adoption.  This is really a huge chunk, I know.  It is a little less than half of the in country expenses and it has taken us many months to raise the first portion.  We could really use your help to pay the ransom to bring God's treasure home.  So without further ado here it is:

This sweet photo that we received last weekend is being turned into a puzzle.  You can purchase a piece of the puzzle and be a lasting memory of all the people that stepped up to help bring this precious girl home.  I can not wait until we begin discussing her adoption story and I can tell her how each one of you helped bring her home.  With the purchase of a puzzle piece your name or message will be placed on the back of the puzzle piece and your name will be entered into our netbook giveaway.  Not only are we giving away a netbook but there are a bunch of other lovely items.  Take a look!

Winner!!!!! Bonnie B!!!!
 Next we have two beautiful tutu and shasta daisy sets from Sophia Jane Boutique.  The winners will be able to pick their favorite colors from the Sophia Jane inventory.

Puzzle pieces are $15 each or three for $40, for each puzzle piece you purchase/sponsor you will receive one entry into the giveaway.
With the purchase of a puzzle piece you will receive additional entries for each blog post or link up in facebook.  You must leave a comment letting me know for additional entries.

The drawing will take place on November 8th.  As soon as the puzzle arrives I will start posting the progress on the completion of the sponsored pieces.  I can't wait to see your name on a piece.

While $5000 is a lot of money to you and I, it is nothing in God's economy.  We have a sweet little girl waiting for us in China and travel is just around the corner, please help us spread the word.
