Day 2 of Our Blog Party!

It is now day number 2 of our blog party and I don't know about you but I am having so much fun. I'm not only getting really good comments but I get so excited to see who is the winner.

Today at our blog party I want to celebrate our freedom of family. You know sometimes (a lot of times) we take our freedom for granted. We are so blessed right now (this could change at any minute) that we can choose the size of our family through birth or adoption. The country Jaxson is from they don't get to choose. We have the freedom to adopt kids with special needs that deserve a family and life just like anyone else. I found out a couple of weeks ago that not all countries have the right to adopt a child with special needs. At this moment in time we have this freedom but have you noticed we are losing more and more freedoms everyday? There could be a time when we don't get to choose and that time could be sooner than you think.

I learned that there is some families in Uganda right now that are from Canada that thought they had the freedom to bring kids home (you can read about it by clicking here). They have now learned at the last part of the process to get their kids home that they may not have that freedom. We need to celebrate our freedom but we also need to start fighting more for our freedom of family.

I know you want to know what I'm giving away for day 2 of our blog party.

It is this BEAUTIFUL bracelet!

I have to tell you a little behind this bracelet though. When I got the bracelet all I knew is someone was making it for an adoption fundraiser, I had no idea of the story behind this bracelet. Grab a kleenex and go read the story here. This family could also use your prayer now to have God remove a roadblock so that they can get to their child. If you want to order one of these beautiful bracelets you can go to her Etsy store by clicking here.
