I first met Chrissy through her blog, and then realized that she didn't live that far away from me. I also learned that her family had food restrictions like we do. She made some amazing allergy-friendly food and brought it to us.
When she arrived, she told me that her four children had never really been around brown kids before, and she hoped that they didn't stare or shy away. I appreciated her honesty, and there wasn't a problem. Young kids often don't even see color, and the kids all played really well together.
Fast forward a few years, and Chrissy moved away, and just last year, adopted three cute little kiddos from Ethiopia. This year, they learned about five siblings in Ethiopia, and they're in the process of adopting them!
They have a great idea for raising the airfare to pick up their sweet children. They need two round-trip fares for Chrissy and her husband, and five one-way tickets for the kids, to the tune of about $10,000. They're asking that people donate just $1.00 towards each ticket, or $7.00 for 7 Tickets. They're also asking people to share it with all of their friends by word of mouth, Twitter, Facebook, or their blog. Almost everyone can afford $7.00, and what a great feeling to be a part of five children getting what every child deserves: a family!
In Chrissy's words:
Just about everyone can spare $7,
and I believe that God will bless all of those 7's
and turn it into thousands to bring our kiddos home!
