For those not on Facebook-Love Makes a Family Tree

Fundraising Thermometer-We are about 75% funded-this is our last quarter!



Would you like to make a lasting impact on the life of the child seeking a forever family? We invite you to be a part of our child’s family tree! This isn’t your traditional family tree; this tree incorporate a philosophy that we are passionate about. I’m sure you have heard of the saying that “it takes a village to raise a child.” Sometimes it takes a village to bring a child home and into a loving family.

We will be creating a family tree on canvas for our new, adopted child. On this tree, the trunk, branches and leaves will be made of people who are committed to seeing that this child will have a forever family. For $5, you can purchase a leaf for the tree. This leaf is actually YOUR fingerprint! If you would like to purchase a branch of the tree, that is possible ($10). Another option is to purchase the grass surrounding the tree ($15). You can also be a part of the tree’s trunk ($20). Finally, if you would like to be a part of the tree’s roots, you have that opportunity as well ($50). For the tree parts other than the leaves, your family name will be sketched onto those parts.

Additionally, if you cannot commit financially at this time, we will have more opportunities throughout the process of the adoption. We also want you to know that we covet prayers. If you would commit to being faithful to praying for our child regularly, we would love to add your name to the back of this art. After all, prayer is the backbone of this endeavor and we cannot wait to share the prayers of the faithful with our new blessing.

One fun suggestion that we have is to purchase a branch for your family, and then each family member could have a leaf on that branch! We cannot wait to hang this art in our child’s room. What an expression of love this will be!

If you purchase a leaf, you will be given special paper to make your fingerprint on. You can use a Crayola washable marker for the ink in ANY color that you choose. Then you will return this to us to add to the canvas. For the other tree parts, we will add you or your family to the canvas.

We are excited to begin this beautiful piece. Upon receipt of your donation, we are dedicated to adding you to the tree within one week.

Payments can be made by check, cash or paypal. Checks can be made out to Kevin or Lora EricksonImage

    Hello Erickson’s. I’d like to make a donation. After reading through this FB post, my understanding is…just to send the donation to your home address??? If so, I’ll drop a check in the mail 🙂
