Breaking Down Barriers

As many of you know from my recent post Calling on Angels, I am now the advocate for a beautiful little girl in Eastern Europe who is waiting for her forever family.

As part of my advocacy I will occasionally be holding fundraisers and making pleas to raise money for Yelena's adoption grant. Yelena does not have a family working towards adopting her (yet), and I just wanted to take a moment to explain why her adoption grant is so important.

As most of you probably know, adoption is expensive, and international adoption can have many additional costs. There are many families out there who are open to adoption, but the money obstacle can stand in the way. As a result, many families only search for children or only consider children who have considerable grants available to help with these often overwhelming costs.

As Yelena's grant grows, her chances of being seen and being chosen will also grow. I believe that God has a specific family hand selected for this beautiful girl. My goal is to create as much awareness and give as much financial and prayer support possible to help Yelena become visible to them.

If you feel a tug in your heart to give to Yelena, I would not only encourage you to do so, I will do a happy dance in your honor. If you would like to donate to her adoption grant now, you can do that here.

Thank you to all of you who have already shared Yelena's profile. If you would like to add Yelena's button to your blog, you can do that by copying the code from one of the grab boxes below and posting it as an html in your layout. (I made a second button that has a smaller width to fit more easily on most blogs).
