My husband and I are currently waiting for our LOA for our son, JJ, from Shanxi Province. As a hobby, I design illuminated glass block and bottles, in a variety of designs. You can visit our blog to view some that I have created @ http://westwingsecondfloor.blogspot.com/.
If you like something you see or have a question about something you would like on a bottle or block you can email me.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, Erin
We are the Johnsons and are in our 3rd adoption process in 4 years. We are currently awaiting LOA for our waiting son in Foshan. We have designed adoption decals that are small but visible. They are only $5 each, which includes S&H. You may see them on our blog in the right side bar. There is a contact bar underneath, or you can email me at email@example.com

We are in the process of our journey to bring our little princess, Mia Grace into our home. My husband and I have dreamed of adopting a little girl from China for years. It is a long wait as all waiting families know but God has our little girl in His hands and we are waiting on His timing. As we wait, I started making jewelry for the little girls I know and started selling them to raise funds for our adoption. Our family website is http://www.robertsfamilyjourney.com. Click on the Photo Album section to see "Jewelry by Amy Lynn". Thank you for looking!
We are the proud parents of a beautiful daughter, Leah, adopted from China in 2005 and are in the process of adopting in the waiting child program. To help raise funds for the second adoption, we have launched a fun side business.
I design hip & fun mommy cards/personal calling cards, blogs, headers for blogs, invitations & announcements and photo cards.
We also do beautiful pen & ink renderings of your home or favorite spot and whimiscal and personalized canvas art for children's rooms. My blog is http://www.happy2adopt.blogspot.com, and we sell on ebay, etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5400962 and http://www.overthemoondesigns.blogspot.com.
Thanks so much for the opportunity to share!
When we started this journey of adoption everyone said how much we'd become obcessed with adoption and all that it holds. Well, they were right! I love everything there is to learn and hear about adoption and want to do all I can to help people finance their journey and support them in this amazing adventure! I have even joined with another mom at our church to begin an adoption ministry! To help with costs I offer families to take one of my Gold Canyon Catalogs (I am a demonstrator) to their friends and family, take orders for these wonderful candles, and I will give them all of my commission of 25% of whatever they sell! I started selling GC candles to make some extra money but helping others bring home their babies is much more important! You can email me or log onto my GC site to see the products http://www.mygccandle.com/candlesfromtina or our blog http://www.journeytokennedi.blogspot.com .
I work part time from home designing custom photo invitations, holiday cards and birth/adoption announcements. You can view my 2007 holiday collection at http://www.peekaboo-greetings.blogspot.com More greetings and categories will be added after the first of the year. All proceeds from Peek-a-Boo Greetings will be used to pay adoption related expenses.
We will begin our paperchase after the first of the year for our daughter (to be named Molly). We have been waiting for me to reach the minimum 30 age requirement to begin. We are still considering SN but are undecided at this point. I am a stay-at-home(or not) Mom of two with Molly to some day round out our family (hopefully sooner than later).
I read myadoptionwebsite every day as I live vicariously through those who are already in the process. We can't wait to get this show on the road.
Thank you Jennifer for giving us all the opportunity to share our ideas and fundraising efforts on your site!
In January I starting making hair bows to help raise money for our China adoption (LID 11/13/2006). We decided to name our bows "Sara Beth Bows" in honor of our future daughter. I make custom hair bows of all sizes, colors and styles. Please visit our website at http://www.ourjourneytosarahbeth.com and click on the Photo Album section to see our selection of bows. Thanks for talking a look! God Bless!
I adopted a child in 06 and fundraised a lot for our adoption expenses. I now love to help other parents and have created a sale that will take place each November. You can visit http://www.whilemamawaits.blogspot.com to view what I have done. It may inspire you to do the same in your community for either yourself, or other families who are adopting.
I adopted Olivia in 2006 and I am beginning paper chasing for my son from Vietnam. To help defray the cost I am selling hand made disciple crosses. These colorful crosses have universal appeal and are only $10.00! Please contact me for more information.
We adopted Hope in 2006, we are currently waiting on PA for Grace, age 11 mths in Shaanxi. To help raise money for our adoption I am making outfits with Chinese themed tops and accented bottoms. You can view them here. http://hopeyfopey.blogspot.com/2007_10_01_archive.html
Thanks so much!!
