a giveaway...

Ashley Ann of Under the Sycamore has generously donated a spot in her SnapShop photography course as a giveaway fundraiser for our adoption.  The course is valued at $200, but honestly, I think you will find it to be a steal as you learn to better capture everyday moments through photography.

                         I am so unbelievably thankful for Ashley's generous donation,
                         but even more for her heart for adoption as she and her
                         husband are in the throws of paperwork to bring her baby
                         home from China.

The October section of the SnapShop course run from October 9th @5:00pm - October 30th @5:00pm US Central time.  Remember it is self-paced, so you can access it 24/7 during that time frame.  Go here to see what this course will teach you.

the details:  On the sidebar you will see a new "chip-in" button.  For every $2 that you donate to our adoption fund through "chip-in" your name will be entered into the hat.  So, if you donate $10, you will receive 5 entries.  Super simple.  The entries for the giveaway will close on October 1st, 2011.  The winner will be posted on October 2nd.

But wait.  It gets better.  Ashley and her husband have generously chosen to donate a portion of the proceeds of registrations for the October SnapShop class to our adoption fund.  So, should you not win, registering for the October class will improve your photography skills as well as help to bring our baby girl home.  Spread the word!

***you will find the "chip-in" button on the side bar at the very top of the page***


  1. My heart is overjoyed to help in some way to your bringing your little girl home! Our prayers are with you, your family and your daughter wherever she lay sleeping or sit playing right now <3

  2. Oh my! Enter me, enter me! And many blessings on your growing family.

  3. I'm so glad for the chance to contribute! I've read pieces of your journey and Ashley's through her blog and have always wanted to do something to help. I wish I could give more but God is bigger than money matters and will bring your little girl home in His timing! Praying for you and your family :)

  4. Hi Meg!

    I am so excited for your family, this is such an exciting time. I wish you all the best!

    I clicked on the "donate" instead of the "chip in" button for the giveaway. I'm not sure if that matters for the giveaway. Sorry!

    Take care,

  5. Is it to late to register for the giveaway? I didn't see the chipin button. Thanks!Katie

  6. Hi Meg!
    I tried to leave a comment when i actually donated last Thursday and somehow it would not post. i just wanted to let you know that I could not be happier for your beautiful family as you prepare to meet this little one! The little girl is blessed already, just to have you guys waiting for her! Praying every detail works out perfectly in His time. Adoption is such a beautiful picture of what God has done for us!
