Here we go. We have already had so many people bless us so far with donations and we have a tree starting to take shape. So far we have had 7 people fill our tree with leaves, 3 people give our tree shape with branches, 2 people give our tree size with a trunk and 4 people give our tree a strong foundation with roots.
Have you ever thought about what makes a family? You can definitely say parents, siblings, children and anyone else connected through these means (aunts, uncles, cousins). At the same time how often have you heard the expression how the above are my relatives but _________ (fill in the blank) are my family. This type of definition comes from that feeling because a person means so much to us we link ourselves to them and we call them family. In the Bible the word used for this is ‘storge,’ and is a love between kinsman or those people we link ourselves to AKA: family.
With that being said, are you willing to link yourself to a child who currently does not have a family? Are you willing to give this child’s family a shape, or make this family tall, give the child’s family a strong foundation, or cover the child’s family with warmth? We are hoping to have at least 50 people give their prints (cards to put your fingerprint will be sent to you) to cover our child’s family tree with leaves for $5 each, 15 people to give this child’s family tree shape by donating $10 for a branch, 15 people to make our child’s tree strong and tall by donating $20 for the trunk and 10 people willing to make our child’s family tree one that can’t be knocked over by giving this tree strong/deep roots by donating $50. Anyone who donates by sponsoring a root, trunk or branch will have their name written into the tree.
As prayer is the backbone to any family, anyone willing to commit to praying for this child and this adoption will have their name written onto the backbone which on canvas is the frame.
This project is dedicated to support raising for the first of our many goals for the adoption. We want to be HOME STUDY READY. Once we have reached this critical step we will be able to partner with groups like Lifesong for Orphans for other sources of funding. Any extra raised, we can also officially apply to the part of our program where our dossier can begin. Will you prayerfully consider joining with us to provide hope and family to the fatherless?
