Let's Take This Journey Together

In my attempt to find information for our adoption process from Uganda, I became quickly aware that there just isn't much out there. I wanted to create a way for all of us taking this journey together to be able to walk along-side each other. A place we can find other people taking this journey with us. A place to encourage each other during the journey. A place to keep up with the family after the adoption is finalized, because, let's face it, the adoption is only the beginning of this journey!

If you are in the process of adopting from Uganda and are blogging about your journey, please e-mail joshntash@hotmail.com so I can add you to the hopefully growing list of people who are bringing these orphans home!

Bottles Of "Change" To Help "Change" A Life

In my search for simple ways to raise money for our adoption I came across an excellent idea.  You all can help too and it won't cost you hardly anything.  It is also a GREAT way to get your kids involved too.  In fact, we're doing it with our kids and they get SO excited when they can help out!

Here's what you need:
  • A baby bottle - you can pick one up at the $1 store or get one out of your attic like we did, ha!  In all honesty, you could use any container you have to place the label on and save your change.
  • A printer - to print the "tag" at the top of this post that we created of our little girl to tape on your bottle/container
  • Collect change around your house.  For Example: under the couch and cushions, on the floor board of the car and outside in the parking lot.  Although, if you do this last one, make sure you lay down the ground rules first...ie it wouldn't be all that productive if you are grabbing change from under a moving vehicle, ya know?:)
So, I'm setting a goal just for fun!

Let's see how many bottles we can fill up with spare change by the end of March!  

Let me know if you are willing to commit to collecting your change for our little Shabila.  Get your kids involved and show them that every penny counts to help change the life of our little girl.

  2. Hello,

    I have visited your blog and enjoyed it very much. It has a great inspiration.

    Would you like to visit my weblog which I created about 3 months ago?

    My husband and I are Iranian and live in the UK. We love Jesus and our weblog is mostly about our Lord. Since we are Iranian we have added some Persian topics to the weblog, but you can read and watch English ones.

    My weblog is http://creation-to-eternity.blogspot.com

    God Bless,

    Afsoon
